Experimenting on Animals: Inside The Monkey Lab

21040 ratings | 2228588 views
VICE News gets rare access to Europe’s largest primate testing facility, the Biomedical Primate Research Center (BPRC) in the Netherlands, where scientists try to find cures for the worst human diseases, while claiming to provide unparalleled care for the monkeys in the hope they live the most animal friendly life before and during testing. Once selected, inside the laboratories, monkeys are shaved, anesthetized, and experimented on for research purposes. Yet the center remains controversial. Protestors gather regularly in front of its gates and there are calls in the Dutch parliament to close the site and switch to alternatives for testing on primates. But as the BPRC explains to VICE News, modern science isn't there yet. In the meantime, it still uses about 200 monkeys a year for a slew of experiments to find cures, and even replacements for primate testing in the future.

I can’t stop crying. I hate humans. We are so damn selfish and we are the reason the fucking world is going to end
Roxas Uzumaki (2 hours ago)
You have to test on humans to speed up results. That's the sad reality. What gives us the right to say to test death row inmates. Because they hurt other people? By the same logic every individual who believes as such are no better than those who are on death row. We must be better that. It's bad I know. Even though they didn't chose that life, we didn't ask our parents to be born. Real greatness? It's what you do with the hand you're delt.

Just use people on death row.

This is animal cruelty! They're defenceless! This a crime that should be stopped at once.

honestly im on the side of the researchers lol hate me all you want fuckers we need vaccines and things to test them on. yall would be dead if it werent for people making vaccines and testing them

Yeah it’s f***ed and all but they are trying to find cures for us. I’ve seen a lab at some college in nyc where they used to test on monkeys, it wasn’t pretty. I love animals and all but if they don’t test on them who are they going to test on? These people look like they take care about the monkeys and shit. I’m sure not everyone are like them, but how many of you eat meat? They get treated like shit. I’ve seen some really fucked up shit they do to cows and other animals. How many of you people go to zoo or when you travel ride elephants or dolphins? They do more fucked up shit to them as well. Idk where I’m going with this but I’ve seen more fucked up shit being done to things we do support.

Unavailable at the time apparently. Letting his pure creatures die at the hands of the inconsiderate greedy selfish monsters. I say use the sinful people on death row
Dr Doalot (11 hours ago)
I support the idea of using death row inmates under certain circumstances. These monkeys are innocent beings. I am generally against death penalty but I'm even more against pointless execution, which by the way is already quite painful despite common belief...

People don't seem to get it is necessary to find effective cures. It might be cruel sometimes but there is sadly no other way.
Lenny Dernier (20 hours ago)
Hold on a minute, you got thousands of ppl starving to death n shit dying in conflict torn areas but you care sooo much more bout animal testing. Don’t get me wrong it’s horrible but you lot give more of a shit than other more horrible issues. I don’t see ppl protesting like this about other issues such as children dying and starving in countries like Yemen. Also these medical advancements are helping those same ppl who are protesting AND they’re trying ever so hard to find alternatives to monkeys

Everyone saying they should do this to criminals, but the only criminals I see are the scientists

Lol. If you experiment on animals you're inhuman. If you experiment on criminals, you're inhuman. No experiment means no more advances in making life threatening diseases obselete. Its a bitter fact that you have to accept.

Animals die for our own food nobody could handle live bank by chickens being ground up or does being murdered be we raise them and hold them captive using them for everything we can until they die or we kill them it's sad they can't live normal lives because even in the wild we destroy their home and will continue too like we have

How can u know an animal and not feel sad. Anyone who's been blessed with the company of an animal companion can attest that ever animal has a personality of there own. they feel pain and sadness. And imagine this is the only life they know. Also they run test like this on human but they will never be told bout it. Sad sad sad
Tim Mason (1 day ago)
I think that child molesters and cereal killers should be given the choice to help mankind. They should be given more freedom in this program better food and more luxury but will also be used to for medical purposes and to further medicine

Alina Nechiporenko (2 days ago)
Don’t quote me on this, but I believe only ~10% of animal testing actually works. Also, in the U.S, 16 billion dollars are used for this. Again, I forgot the source, but it might have been a petition called “Petition Against Animal Testing at Tax Payers Expense”

Ouch! I feel sick from this.

Curious Kitteh (1 day ago)
Claudio Andrei would you say that to people who cry about pedos hurting kids? Grow a heart. testing on animals is not an accurate predictor or effects on humans. Animal testing is as worthless as pedos harming kids.

Why the f*ck are they doing this with these poor animals just leave them in the wild.
Lakie Lou (4 days ago)
All of this comes down to the ridiculous lack of money and resources we invest in science. Fund research and reduce the limitations on consensual human research and these primates would not have to live like this. So sad

Im literally crying, these people have no heart, no soul... It's disgusting how they treat these little babies!! Im against it, and I wish that someday someone would test something bad on them. PERIOD.

This makes me sick! Animals are humans to how would you like it if Monkeys would do that to you.
Henry Haokip (4 days ago)
This is a really sad actione for many of the people in the world but if we don't test it on the animal who doesn't know pain and anger like us on whom will we test the drugs on...... For instance one of your family member gets infected with the virus and the doctors says he/she can't be saved there is no cure for this type of virus.. How would you react......will you wait for him/her to die on the hospital beds... I don't think so....at that type of moment not only you but including me .... we'll be going crazy not knowing anything to say or do... So my fellow human please don't say animals are innocent..... just think as they help us to reach to the next level...... On the other hand these might seems harsh but if you think animals are innocent.....just go give your body for the test okay If there's anything at all that hurts you guys in this comment..... I'm so sorry.....

Dis da saddest ish I've ever seen. I mean if those cute monkeys deserve to get treated like this, we deserve to be harmed by untested products. I would hug all of the monkeys afterwards and give them the love they deserve.

Franny Em (5 days ago)
This is fucking wrong and NOT WORTH IT. I truly hate humanity. Two of those fuckers were creeps for sure. Look in there eyes. If one droops (specifically the left) or they talk to you with too much eye contact (like they're trying to convince you) or are avoiding it...just be careful bc those people are typically psychopaths! They're your friends, family members, and role models. We live in a sick world. Don't forget that.

Mohammad Ali Yesar (3 days ago)
getting rich or not, you will not be able to buy out these places, cause why the hell would they sell these places to you? And basically you want to stop creating vaccines, and those vaccines can stop deadly viruses which are killing millions of people.

Curious Kitteh (5 days ago)
Ironically and sickeningly, almost every drug that passes on animals is scrapped during the human studies because our bodies handle the drugs differently than mice, bunnies, pigs, dogs and monkeys for example. I listened to an entire lecture on how computer simulations are far superior to animal models now. The ONLY reason this ghastly scene continues is funding. the lab animal industry is multi-million and will do anything to keep getting paid handsomely to breed these poor animals into a life of torture. We need to educate people on alternatives, these for-profit companies will NEVER do the right thing on their own. These poor animals are voiceless, they need us.
Katherine P (5 days ago)
Use child molesters and murders to test on, not innocent creatures. Okay so testing medicine on those people would make sense since things need to be tested on humans anyway. So sad

Do they ever wonder if the drugs they're sedated on effect the results????? Not to mention humans will always have different effects and symptoms than any animals. This is just unnecessary...
Kendra Speers (5 days ago)
Why cant we use cells? Infections they are testing spread by cell? If they sit down and think about it it would be better to see growth in a dish. Sure you won’t see the physical impact on the monkey but judging by research already done it should have shown a pattern. Plus there are a lot of humans on death row and other wise sick that this could be tested on knowingly instead of an animal that doesn’t understand.

Instead of putting criminals on death row, we should experiment on them 🤫😈.

I'm not actually for testing on humans or fucking anyone but I do think instead of killing serial killers we should research their brains with ct scans and all the rest to point out future psychopaths. The world is soooo fucked..its crazy

Please sub to my Chanel everyone I’ll make any video idea you want every person who subs is a pray for these poor monkeys monkeys and orangutang are my favourite please stop the tests I hope when I get enough subs to get money from YouTube I’ll give 50 percent to saving orangutans and these poor monkeys and the other 50 percent to my Chanel to make vids about saving them these poor monkeys

Dont forget this is for our own good
Franny Em (5 days ago)
Nooooo dude. Look I think your brain is just too small to get what I'm trying to explain. Humans should never have done this in the first place. If I was saved by one of these vaccines I would dedicate a lot more of my time to stopping this. Do you understand that. Do you get that a priest can be a pedophile? Do you get the dichotomy that life can be? If not pls go learn about it so we can have a real conversation ffs. 🤗
DANNY Gamer Z (5 days ago)
So you want to shut the lab down but want to use the medicine that they experimented what a double timer
Franny Em (5 days ago)
It's nuance. Meaning hard for certain ppl who can't grasp large concepts to understand. I don't support it. But we can only do so much to stop it. Talking about it is the first step.
DANNY Gamer Z (5 days ago)
So you telling me that you support it but not quite what kind of answer is that
Franny Em (5 days ago)
I wouldn't want to. I would have to because it would be stupid of me not to. That doesn't mean I can't say this is wrong and it should stop. I know that's hypocritical but this a tough time to be alive when you disagree with almost every aspect of society and ppls perspective on it. This is not okay and if you think it is I understand why but you are saying this kind of treatment is necessary for the "greater good" and it's just NOT. EVER. OKAY.
Cool Dude (6 days ago)
If we don't do these, we can't survive as humans. Nobody cares. Once you are dead, you are dead! So, cruel it might be but we need to survive as long as we can. That's our primary goal.
