Now for the seventh time in ten years Huntingdon Life Sciences have been infiltrated and exposed again. Shocking cruelty and footage of experiments have been filmed inside HLS during 2007 and 2008; and primates caputred in the wild were shipped over by plane to France and then road to HLS, enduring 30 hour journeys in small cages from Vietnam.

Animal Defenders International have exposed the primate trade across three continents, including an undercover worker inside a primate unit at HLS during 2007 and 2008.

Struggling monkeys were strapped in to chairs and forced to inhale products. Many were housed in one cubic metre cages and then taken out to be held down by workers as tubes are forced down their throats. The psychological damage and stress inflicted on these innocent animals lead some of them to chew their own fingers and toes down to the bone; and one traumatised primate's face became so injured she had to be force fed.

217 monkeys were killed in just five studies for customers including Astra Zeneca, GlaxoSmithkline and the Ministry of Defence.

Animal Defenders International have written a detailed report detailing their findings at HLS, including never seen before photos from inside HLS in 2007 and 2008.
