Animals Housed for Later Use
One area of new information about animal experimentation involves animals that are being held by research laboratories which have not yet, or never will be, used in experimentation. Examples of animals that fit into these categories are ones which are used for breeding purposes, or animals in quarantine for later use in experimentation.
For fiscal year 2002 136,347 of these animals were in laboratories. This brings the actual total for animals in labs to 1,574,900. The largest species in this category is primates with 43,676 held for later use. This brings the actual total for primates in labs to 139,737. The actual population of dogs in laboratories rises to 87,485 when the statistics for animals not yet used in experiments are included. The cat total becomes 78,722. Other species climb to: guinea pigs 310,540; rabbits 327074; hamsters 202,238; sheep 40715; pigs 77,699; other animals 245,910; other farm animals 64,780.
