They go through so much pain, they are lonely and they don’t have a lot of space to roam, they have to sit there and wait to be poked and prodded. They just have to wait until they are performed on again to get out of their cages. After they are done being poked and prodded on, they will eventually be put down.

When someone walks by the cages their blood pressure rises and they shake in fear. Animal research/experimentation is a form of animal abuse.
