VICTORY! NZ bans testing party drugs on animals

VICTORY! NZ bans testing party drugs on animals

I'm SO happy to tell you that the New Zealand Prime Minister has said a big fat 'NO' to testing party drugs on animals! Seems like a no-brainer right? But around 18 months ago, the NZ Health Department was considering a plan that would see legal 'party pills' and synthetic cannabis tested on animals. Now that plan has been scrapped!

And the best part is that YOU helped! Thousands of individuals from right here amongst the Unleashed community took action to urge the Health Minister to put a stop to this. *High five!* Thanks to the intense campaigning of animal groups, including our friends at SAFE, and compassionate people like YOU speaking up, countless dogs, rabbits and other animals will now be spared from cruel tests for legal 'party drugs'.

Thankfully, more and more people are coming to realise that animals probably don't want to be tested on and are developing and adopting animal-friendly alternatives. In fact, it looks like India might soon become the first country to get rid of animal testing for drugs altogether!

Are you picturing animals running free right now? Because I sure am :) And I was reminded of a story from a few years ago where 9 beagles were rescued from an animal lab in the USA. What better way to celebrate this good news from NZ than with a video of dogs experiencing their first moments of freedom:

Feelin' those good rescue story vibes? Keep 'em rollin' with this one about FREE chimps :)

I didn't even know they did such a thing... how do they condone such a thing yet they call it illegal to use or distribute drugs, weather against the will of a being or not, is entirely irrelevant. As is the species of life form, that too is entirely irrelevant.

This makes me think of a great quote,

It is a good news!  It is powerful to be united to aim one goal, like in the exotic hunting world.  We must realized and follow proper procedures on breeding like how V-Bharre Ranch -http://www.huntingtexastrophies.com/ does.
