Author Animal Aid UK

Animal Aid was founded in January 1977 to work, by all peaceful means, for an end to animal cruelty. Our vision is a world in which animals are no longer harmed and exploited for human gain, but allowed to live out their lives in peace. We work hard to bring an end to practices that involve animal abuse and exploitation, but we also take a pragmatic approach and call for measures such as CCTV in slaughterhouses, that will help to reduce suffering in the meantime.

Parkinson’s UK will provide more than £780,000 for work which will include testing a drug on marmosets. The usual way to ‘model’ Parkinson’s Disease in monkeys is to inject them with a toxic chemical which results in terrible symptoms, including paralysis, total loss (or extreme slowness) of movement, rigidity, loss of vocalization and uncontrollable tremors.
