Pamela Anderson, also the brand ambassador of PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) has raised concerned on the inhuman treatment of monkeys, guinea pigs and rabbits kept at AIIMS for research purposes.

After being shown footage of the treatment of Animals at All India Institute of Media Sciences, also the premier medical facility in India, PETA and Pamela Anderson have raised concerned in a very strongly worded letter.

Pamela Anderson is helping in getting spotlight on the issue, whereas the cause is the ethical treatment of animals at AIIMS.

It is although a debatable issue, but doing research on animals can be the safest bet for testing new drugs and observing their reaction and side effects. Although on the other hand it is inhuman for the animals under test since once the test is done, they are given excess anesthesia and left to die.

So although it is a double edged sword, there should be some middle ground that the doctors at AIIMS will have to show. How soon will this path come ? Considering the state of affairs in India, I am unsure of any quick path. Looking at the pathetic state of research in India, there is a high probability that the animals would be left free.

Retire aging monkeys, Pamela Anderson urges AIIMS.
