Awful experiments on cats at the University of Cambridge

Daily Mail published a horrific article today claiming that top UK Universities (including Cambridge) perform brain experiments on kittens. According to the article, the cats are regularly put thought horrific tests with their skulls broken and ­electrodes stuck onto their brains, ribs and spine. Those experiments are meant to help scientists find out more about problems such as the “lazy eye”.

During the experiments, the cats are paralyzed to stop them from moving and are killed following the tests. I don’t know how accurate the article is (it is Daily Mail in the end of the day), but if at least a bit of this is true, it is really awful and the Universities should be ashamed for such tests.
