Huntingdon Life Sciences Animal Cruelty

WAR Launches Operation: Sinking Ship

****Cross Post Widely****


With the recent drop of Huntingdon Life Sciences (stock symbol: LSRI) off of the Pink Sheets and onto the 'Grey Market' and the loss of their last significant institutional investor, Columbia Management/Bank of America, the only thing keeping HLS afloat is their key customers and suppliers. While a watchful eye on Wall Street will show whether anyone else gets the bright idea of investing in LSRI or making a market for them, attention should now be focused on the small group of companies that are providing HLS with enough ballast to keep their heads above water.

On Monday, May 8, 2006, Operation: Sinking Ship will be launched. Operation: Sinking Ship is a campaign whose mission is to educate the key customers and suppliers of HLS about the cruelty and killing that they make possible with their contracts and customer orders. The main companies, in the United States, that continue to do business with HLS are: Pfizer, Roche, Novartis, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Bristol Myers-Squibb (BMS). Key suppliers to HLS are: Phenomenex and PDP Couriers. However, Operation: Sinking Ship will not be limited to those companies.

Many of these companies have operations or sales offices and/or production facilities scattered across the North American continent. Wherever you live, there is likely a company that could be educated about the cruelty revealed in 5 undercover investigations at Huntingdon Life Sciences. Activists everywhere can find opportunities to campaign locally to educate companies about how their contracts and their money fund the killing of 500 animals a day at Huntingdon Life Sciences.

Right now, over 70,000 animals are imprisoned in the cold steel cages and concrete pens at the death camps of Huntingdon Life Sciences. There, they wait for the white gloved hand that inevitably comes to pull them from their cages, to insert the stomach or nose tubes that funnel caustic and noxious chemicals into their bodies. They wait to be poisoned, burned, cut open and brutally victimized for the scientific fraud of animal testing. Alone, they suffer as they wait to die.

This is the beginning of a series of e-mails that will provide contact points at various customers and suppliers of Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS). HLS is a sinking ship and our mission is to educate those who have a business relationship with HLS about their financial instability and moral bankruptcy. HLS is a company that kills 500 animals a day, every single day of the year. They are a company exposed by 5 undercover investigations showing egregious cruelty, shoddy business practices and employees guilty of animal abuse and negligence on the job. HLS employees have even been exposed taking drugs on the job. Certainly, this is information that HLS customers and suppliers need to know about.

Please keep all of your letters, e-mails and phone calls polite and informative. Experience has led us to understand that once a company knows what is really going on at the death camps of Huntingdon Life Sciences, they will be anxious to distance themselves from this notorious animal killing facility. Keep in mind that some companies screen e-mails based on key words in the subject line.

The first focal point of attention is Pfizer. Pfizer is a company that should be sensitive to the issue of product testing. In April of 2005 the US Food and Drug Administration requested that Pfizer recall their arthritis medication Bextra. Bextra is no longer available in the USA. Bextra joins a list of products that have had to be recalled after causing human injuries and tragic deaths. All of these products, including Bextra, were tested on animals. Some were tested at Huntingdon Life Sciences.

The information that follows can be found on the WAR website and will be updated with each new action alert. For Pfizer information visit:

Following please find a contact list for Pfizer's Executive Committee:

Henry (“Hank”) A. McKinnell, Jr., Ph.D. Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer

Recently, the relationship between Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) and one of their major customers GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) has been prominently featured in the headlines of international media. Here is a video clip from SKYE News reporting on a letter that was posted to GSK shareholders by an unknown group. In this video segment, Win Animal Rights and Operation: Sinking Ship are featured.,,31200-animal_p12303,00.html

GSK's response was to label animal rights activists as extremists and terrorists (so what else is new?) and to issue the following statement:

"GSK will continue to work with HLS as long as they continue to meet their current high standards of animal welfare in line with Home Office requirements."

Apparently GSK is choosing to ignore the 5 undercover investigations, the past censure of both British and American regulatory agencies and common sense, which tells us that HLS has changed nothing over the years in the way they abuse and kill 500 animals a day. Consider educating their key decision makers with polite and informative letters, faxes, e-mails and phone calls. When they hear about the brutality and abuse that has been proven to take place at HLS, they will no doubt make the right business decision by cutting their ties to HLS.

"Why aren't they in prison?"

When you visit the website of Bristol-Myers Squibb or BMS, it is hard to get past the legal issues as the are the very first thing highlighted on their homepage is: "Agreement With The U.S. Attorney's Office in New Jersey Deferred Prosecution Agreement (pdf)". You can find a copy of this agreement at:

On May 2, 2006, according to industry journal "Medpage Today", Bristol-Myers Squibb ".....will no longer manufacture or sell Tequin (gatafloxacin), an antibiotic that has been linked to both hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia in diabetics and elderly patients. The company is not, however, pulling Tequin from pharmacy shelves."

It is ironic that an activist can spraypaint graffitti on a pharmaceutical executive's garage door and be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison and labeled a "terrorist". At the same time, that very same executive might be guilty of swindling investors or customers out of massive amounts of money or continuing to sell harmful drugs to unsuspecting consumers and they face "deferred prosecution".

Add to that, their complicity in the killing of 500 animals every day by their continued customer relationship with Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS). HLS may be doing the actual killing of those 500 animals a day, but companies like BMS are signing the contracts and cutting the checks that allow the killing to continue. Please contact Bristol-Myers Squibb's executive management team and ask them to cut their ties to HLS today.

New Report on Huntingdon Life Sciences Animal Cruelty

Although Win Animal Rights is not affiliated with or associated with SHAC, we know good information when we see it. That is why we are forwarding this information far and wide and urge you to do the same.

From the SHAC website:

"Since 1997 we have constantly heard from Huntingdon's customers, suppliers and the Government that the beagle beating scenes shot inside HLS by Channel 4 were isolated incidents. Brian Cass the MD of HLS has said many times in the media that things have changed at HLS and what was filmed in 1997 no longer happens. We can now for the first time prove this to be a lie. We can prove that nothing haschanged inside Huntingdon Life Sciences.

This is now the sixth yes the sixth time Huntingdon have been exposed from 1989 now right up to date to 2006. How many more times do we have to prove that Huntingdon Life Sciences are cruel to animals, break the law and regularlyfalsify test data before the British Government acts?"
