So you agree that all those that helped slaves escape in early America should have been sent to prison for theft and destruction of property?

I am all for rescuing animals from labs, but is the spray paint really necessary? I also really doubt that the people helping the slaves torched the houses back then or destroyed the buildings. (I seriously can't believe that we are comparing rats and African American slaves)

It's the same theory as when resistance fighters destroyed the railroad tracks on which the Nazis were traveling in order to hurt them, only even more direct, i.e. destroying the instruments of torture. And economic sabotage makes sense, in terms of lessening the likelihood that labs might continue, that is, increasing the costs of doing vivisection. If you dont think economic sabotage was part of other resistance movements, I think you're quite naive.

So... what's going to happen to the 1000 mice? Do they get adopted out? Set "free" to get run over or eaten by predators? The article doesn't really say, except for "Hundreds of mice, many ready to be delivered, and 18 macaques are now in our hands, free."<br><br><br><br>
What does that mean? "ready to be delivered..." to what?

I don't know. They're not wild animals, so they would not be set free. When you hear about mink being set free, that's different - they are wild animals.<br><br><br><br>
But even if they were humanely euthanized, that's a far better ending for them than being a research tool in a lab.<br><br><br><br>
Not personal to anyone here, but anyone who supports vivisection I think hasn't got much to say about what happens to rescued animals. A vivisection lab is the worst existence I can imagine. It's lingering torture.

You should look up the definition of "wild" and "domestic" in this context. Even if a chihuahua is feral, he or she is still a domestic animal. Even if a lion is bred in a zoo, he or she is still a wild animal. Mink are still wild animals, despite what the fur industry might say. And, some animals cannot be truly domesticated, even after generations of humans trying to do just that.

Being "wild" in your context doesn't mean they can survive in a wild environment after living in captivity their whole lives. If you release an animal that has no idea how to survive, chances are it will die, whether its breed or species as a whole is domestic or not.

Yes it does. Holding a wild animal in captivity doesn't magically take away his/her instincts.

Bull****. You take an animal that’s been given food, water and shelter its whole life and throw it out into the wild the chances are it’s screwed, instincts or not. Why do you think they have to teach “wild” animals to live <i>in the wild</i> before re-introduction into it?

Yeah, that's probably why they can't even catch prey, right?

Oh, if you release enough I'm sure they'll kill something, whether its eachother, native animals or people's pets.
