Animal testingThe military tests weapons on animals Maximum pain is aim of new US weapon 19:00 02 March 2005 Exclusive from New Scientist Print Edition David Hambling The US military is funding development of a weapon that delivers a bout of excruciating pain from up to 2 kilometres away. Intended for use against rioters, it is meant to leave victims unharmed. But pain researchers are furious that work aimed at controlling pain has been used to develop a weapon. And they fear that the technology will be used for torture."I am deeply concerned about the ethical aspects of this research," says Andrew Rice, a consultant in pain medicine at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London, UK. "Even if the use of temporary severe pain can be justified as a restraining measure, which I do not believe it can, the long-term physical and psychological effects are unknown."The research came to light in documents unearthed by the Sunshine Project, an organisation based in Texas and in Hamburg, Germany, that exposes biological weapons research. The papers were released under the US's Freedom of Information Act.One document, a research contract between the Office of Naval Research and the University of Florida in Gainesville, US, is entitled "Sensory consequences of electromagnetic pulses emitted by laser induced plasmas". It concerns so-called Pulsed Energy Projectiles (PEPs), which fire a laser pulse that generates a burst of expanding plasma when it hits something solid, like a person (New Scientist print edition, 12 October 2002). The weapon, destined for use in 2007, could literally knock rioters off their feet. According to a 2003 review of non-lethal weapons by the US Naval Studies Board, which advises the navy and marine corps, PEPs produced "pain and temporary paralysis" in tests on animals. 320,000 animals die each year at the hands of the US government Peta, People for the Ethical treatment of animals The militarys was on animals, No date, accessed 4/23/05 http://www.peta.org/feat/military/index.html Each year, at least 320,000 primates, dogs, pigs, goats, sheep, rabbits, cats, and other animals are hurt and killed by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) in experiments that rank among the most painful conducted in this country. Because these figures dont include experiments that were contracted out to nongovernmental laboratories or the many sheep, goats, and pigs often shot in wound experiments, the total number of animal victims is actually much higher. The cost to taxpayers for these military experiments is estimated to be in excess of $100 million annually. The military has 725 independent experiments, and they are all cruel Peta, People for the Ethical treatment of animals The militarys was on animals, No date, accessed 4/23/05 http://www.peta.org/feat/military/index.html The militarys tracking system lists approximately 725 military experiments using animals. Such tests are as misleading as they are cruel. Animals often respond to chemical agents and antidotes differently than humans. A rats respiratory system differs greatly from that of a human, and rats are more susceptible to toxins because they are unable to vomit. Mice have a genetic tendency to develop lung tumors, rendering much of the research on physiological effects of exposure invalid. Regarding skin tests, a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services report said, Since laboratory animals have fur and do not have sweat glands on most of their body, they do not provide optimal models for dermal exposure. Animals are conscripted into service as everything from intelligence agents to mine sweepers Peta, People for the Ethical treatment of animals The militarys was on animals, No date, accessed 4/23/05 http://www.peta.org/feat/military/index.html The armed forces conscript various animals into intelligence and combat service, sending them on missions that endanger their lives and well-being. The Marine Corps teaches dogs mauling, snarling, sniffing, and other suitable skills needed to search for bombs and drugs. A series of Navy tests of underwater explosives in the Chesapeake
