Thank you for bringing some exposure to this disgraceful practice. Having worked several years in animal protection, I already regard the pharmaceutical industry with strong skepticism. This is the latest in a series of revelations that bolster my feelings. It is so important that the general public learn of this, yet such is the insidious reach of this industry into all quarters of power that I have only faint hope it will make media waves.
