This all creatures animal exploitation photo gallery about Rabbits is being presented to show the public the difference between the cute animals we see in advertising and picture in our minds and the reality that exists in the world.
(Rabbit Exploitation - Medical Research - 14) This rabbit is being used to produce polyclonal antibodies. First they are injected with antigens which cause the rabbits to produce the antibodies that the vivisectors are interested in. These antibodies are then removed from the rabbits blood. In this photo you can clearly see where they are regularly draining the rabbit's blood through the clip in his or her ear. We have learned about other experiments in which vivisectors drain the blood directly from the rabbit's heart using a needle and syringe with no anesthesia.
