Ethics

Very questionable practices

The German association Soko Tierschutz released an 8-minute video from an infiltration into a German pharmaceutical laboratory in Hamburg on October 11th 2019.


This video shows unbearable images of totally unacceptable practices. If these are authenticated, they should be severely condemned, especially since they very clearly breach the fundamental ethical rules which govern the regulations on research with animals.


GIRCOR has always defended responsible, ethical research that respects the animals used. The entire scientific community joins in the outrage caused by the images broadcasted in this video.


The European association EARA has also posted on its site a statement concerning these images.
