AfA opposes brutal use of live pigs as crash test dummies in China

It has been widely reported by many major news outlets that the International Journal of Crashworthiness recently published findings of a study carried out at a hospital in China wherein live young pigs have been used as crash test dummies.

The research, carried out by the Institute for Traffic Medicine, unsurprisingly killed almost half of the pigs, leaving the others brutally injured and suffering for six hours before dying in pain.

Our coalition has come together as a united voice of 200 global expert animal welfare organisations and the millions of concerned people they represent, to let the relevant authorities in China know that the world is watching.
