Corinne Roonan Mrs. Dicicco Honors English 2 17 December 2015 America, Where Freedom Rings (Only for Humans Though) “Over one hundred million animals are burned, crippled, poisoned, and abused in U.S. labs each year” (“11 Facts About Animal Testing”). Trials that leave animals in a horrendous physical and mental state occur every day in the “home of the free.” The neglect and abuse of defenseless animals in experimentation labs is cruel and unnecessary because these animals experience mental health issues from captivity, they feel pain, and they play a crucial part in humanity’s survival on earth. One reason animal experimentation must be halted is that many animals, such as chimpanzees, can experience mental health problems as a result of negligent captivity. Dr. Jane Goodall, a famed primatologist, stated “In no lab I have visited have I seen so many chimpanzees exhibit such intense fear. The screaming I heard when chimpanzees were being forced to move toward the dreaded needle in the squeeze cages was, for me, absolutely horrifying” (“Harm and Suffering”). Many researchers state that the screaming, rocking back and forth, and other behavioral abnormalities are normal, but it is not in chimpanzees’ nature to act this way. Dr. Jane Goodall is a credible source who debunks that outlandish belief about the everyday actions of the animals. Every animal behaves differently according to their instincts, but unnerving screaming is not a part of a primate's conduct.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
