I am so angry. I went out in search of rat care advice and stumbled over what seemed like a pro-rat site, only to find myself following a link to this horrible company, Harlan Laboratories. A major biomedical, rat and mouse, research, breeding, and operating facility. These are the people who are responsible for the tumors that now end most of our pet rat's lives. These are the people who perform gruesome operations and breeding experiments. They offer outbred, inbred, aged, hybrid and mutant rats for sale. Go see for yourselves. They will also perform a whole host of surgical procedures for you, so you wont have to get your dirty lab hands any dirtier. How totally repulsive and horrible. FUCK THEM!!!

We do not have the right to do this. My life is not more valuable than a rat life just because I have a bigger brain. My species is not more important than any other species. Plus it's all a bunch of fraud anyway. You can't extrapolate data from one species and apply it to another. If you really could they'd be shouting it from the rooftops! We all know how long heart patients had to wait to get their hands on digitalis because of the adverse affect it had on dogs. Oh hell, don't even bother to reply if this pisses you off, because I just don't want to go around again with people over this. Go disagree with me on your own journals. If all the vivisectors of the world suddenly dropped dead, this planet would be a much better place, take my word for it.

Oh my God, I think I'm going to be sick, I went back to the site and found out they also offer Hamsters, Gerbils, Guinea Pigs, Rabbits, Beagels, Mongrels?, Pigs and Cats. This hurts me so much I want to die.

Here check out the cats they casually offer for your own personal experimental usage. Their having been bred there somehow makes them feeling and suffering neutral. God how I hate this company!!!!

Developed by Harlan CPB, the Netherlands.
HsdCpb:CADS (BR) - currently bred by Harlan, Inc., Madison, Wisconsin, and Harlan CPB, the Netherlands.

A shorthaired, multicolored, disease-free feline which has been bred and socialized carefully for multi-disciplinary biomedical research.
Unvaccinated and barrier-reared to assure freedom from diseases or humoral antibodies affecting disease susceptibility and progression.
Antibody Profile Defined (APDTM) Feline - free of antibody to:

Calicivirus (FCV)
Coronavirus (FeCV/FIPV)
Herpesvirus (FVR/FHV-1)

Parvovirus (FPLV)
Syncytial Virus (FeSFV)

When optionally vaccinated and protected, a well-characterized feline which can be maintained conventionally for various neurological, cardiovascular, and antimicrobial studies, as well as many other research applications."

Have you ever seen one of these cats in a lab, with it's skull opened and wires coming out of it? Have you ever seen one in a stereotaxic device. These people have no mercy. They are scientific monsters who view my emotional response as simply that, emotional, thereby week. I can't say it enough, I hate them!
