No* to animal testing lab plan

Star June 2010

KUALA LUMPUR: Animal lovers, activists, a Senator and a beauty queen were among those who gathered in front of the Indian High Commission here to protest the plan by an Indian drug company to build an animal testing laboratory in Malacca.
The Ethical treatment of Animals (PETA) drove home their point by using a ※rat§ mascot.

Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Selangor (SPCA) chairman Christine Chin, handed a memorandum to High Commissioner Vijay Gokhale, which was received by Second Secretary Birbald Anand. Also present at the protest was Miss Malaysia/World 2009/2010 Thanuja Ananthan.

Lyn Wong, 38, said: ※People must be made more aware that testing on animals is not necessary as there are many alternatives in terms of medical research.§

Mohani Niza, 22, said the Indian company had expressed its intention to use monkeys in experiments to test drugs ※because they think monkeys are not as cute as cats, but they do suffer as well.§

Also lending support was Senator Dr S. Ramakrishnan of the DAP, who said in a statement that animal testing should be banned because it was cruel, not reliable, inaccurate ※and below human decency.§

It was reported that Indian drug company, Vivo Biotech, was planning to build a multi-million dollar animal testing laboratory in Malacca to test-trial medicines on primates, dogs, and small mammals.

Animals For Drug Test

Malaysiakini June 2010

Over a dozen animal rights activists assembled in front of the Indian High Commission in Kuala Lumpur today to protest against the planned animal testing lab in Alor Gajah, Malacca.

Organised by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) Asia, the protest started about 1pm after Peta's official rat mascot arrived in full gear by taxi, bringing along protest placards in English and Hindi.

Among those who took part in the protest were Miss Malaysia/World 2009/2010 Thanuja Aanandhan, who is also a Peta ambassador, and DAP senator Dr S Ramakrishnan.

Undeterred by the scorching sun, the protesters stood at the gates as they thrust the placards in the air, demanding that Indian company Vivo Bio Tech Ltd stops its plans to build the controversial testing facility.

'Vivo Bio Tech: Quit Malaysia!' and 'Keep cruel animal tests out of Malaysia!' read some of the placards. Protesters chanted ※Quit, quit quit! Quit right now!§ as police personnel monitored the situation

Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA)Selangor chairperson Christine Chin and two other members of the group went into the diplomatic mission to submit a memorandum of protest to high commissioner Vijay K Gokhale.

The SPCA also went around collecting signatures in support of their joint petition against the facility.
This will be sent to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and Malacca Chief Minister Mohd Ali Rustam once 10,000 signatures are in hand.

This is the second protest held since plans for the animal testing facility were made public in April. The first was organised in Petaling Jaya by a coalition comprising the SPCA, British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection and the European Coalition to End Animal Experiments.

The proposed facility has sparked international outrage, particularly after Mohd Ali declared that it is man's ※god given right§ to use animals for drug tests.

Plans to build the facility in Malacca were put in motion after state-owned Melaka Biotech, Vanguard Creative Technologies Sdn Bhd and Vivo Bio Tech inked a memorandum of understanding on the facility following negotiations in India last January.

Upon completion, the facility is expected to conduct tests using imported beagles and white mice, and macaques sourced from local jungles.

Animal lab operating on the quiet for three years

Star June 2010

BUKIT MERTAJAM: While animal lovers are up in arms over the setting up of an animal testing laboratory in Malacca, a similar facility is believed to have been operating on the quiet here for the past three years.

According to the company*s website, it is an independent contract research organisation offering toxicology services to the worldwide pharmaceutical, biotechnology, agrochemical and industrial chemical industries.

It claims to conduct toxicology tests on a range of animals. It said some animals were used for regulatory pre-clinical toxicity testing of pharmaceuticals and certain chemicals, such as agrochemicals and biocides.

The RM52mil facility includes a state-of-the-art dog unit, purpose-built to provide the highest standards of animal care and advanced study procedures.

There were also 15 animal rooms, each designed to hold up to 40 dogs and enabling the housing of one study per room, the company said in its website.

The company also said its non-human primate building included eight animal rooms. It added that the primates would be supplied from the company*s own biosecure breeding facility.

The website stated that the company had a 3,200 sq m barriered rodent facility for short-term toxicity, carcinogenicity and reproductive toxicity studies.

The existence of such a laboratory comes as a surprise to the state Wildlife and National Parks Department, which wants to investigate the company operating at the Penang Science Park in Bukit Minyak.

Penang-based Sahabat Alam Malaysia (SAM) is shocked that the company is operating in its own ※backyard§ without its knowledge. Department director Noor Alif Wira Othman said it had not issued any permit for primates to be bred for research purposes in the state.

※Breeding primates for research requires several permits such as for catching, keeping, breeding, selling or buying of the primates. We will conduct an inspection on this premises to find out if they have the necessary documentation,§ he said.

SAM president S.M. Mohd Idris expressed shock and disappointment when informed about the facility.

※We have been actively fighting with the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Selangor against the animal testing lab in Malacca.

※Little did we know there was a lab conducting similar activities here in Penang,§ he said. A state official-cum-animal lover, who declined to be named, said he was disappointed with the previous administration for allowing the facility to be set up in Penang.

※I believe the company had once mentioned that it chose Penang to set up the facility because the laws on animal testing in European nations were more stringent,§ he said.

Former state executive councillor Datuk Dr Teng Hock Nan said: ※The issue should not be over-politicised as I am sure proper procedures are observed to avoid causing unnecessary discomfort to the animals.§

British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection and the Dr Hadwen Trust for Humane Research said about 115 million animals were used in scientific research globally in 2005 based on official national figures and estimates from the number of scientific papers published involving animals. Only Liechtenstein and San Marino have banned animal testing.

A check by The Star yesterday showed that there were fewer than 15 cars parked in the compound and CCTV cameras installed around the two-storey building.

There were hardly any activity in the compound except for a few people believed to be suppliers and contractors going in and out of the premises.

When met at the entrance, a security guard claimed that the company had not started formal operations yet. He said his boss was busy and could not see any visitors. Although he took down the name and contact number of the reporter, and said his boss would telephone, no call came from the company.

Animal rights groups protest against Indian company's plan

People*s Daily On-line June 2010

A coalition of animal rights groups gathered outside the Indian High Commission in Malaysia here on Wednesday to protest against a plan by an Indian drug company to build an animal testing laboratory in Malaysia.

The protesters claimed that the 140 million-U.S.-dollar project meant for pre-clinical trials would cause thousands of animals to suffer and die as a result of the experiments.

They also handed a memorandum to the Indian High Commissioner to Malaysia Vijay Gokhale, hoping that the Indian government would look into the matter.

According to the animal rights activists, the Indian company has planned to conduct trials on Malaysian long-tailed macaques and beagles upon completion of the laboratory.

Over 80 protesters from at least four animal rights groups were present at the high commission.

Protest over animal testing facility- Freedom Malaysia

Jun 2010

VIDEO INSIDE KUALA LUMPUR : A group of animal rights activists gathered outside the Indian High Commission here to protest against a proposed Indian-based animal testing facility in Malacca.

Consisting of members from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) Selangor, the group handed over a memorandum to Indian High Commissioner Vijay Gokhale.

Some of the concerns laid out in the memorandum highlighted the alleged mistreatment of animals in research laboratories, as well the lack of scientific validity involving animal testing. SPCA Selangor suggested alternatives such as studying post-mortem tissues.

Owned by Indian company Vivo Bio Tech Ltd, the RM500 million facility is expected to use Malaysian long-tailed macauques and Beagles for testing purposes upon completion.

※If the Indian people knew what was going on in Malaysia, they would be shocked,§ said Rochelle Regodon, a spokesperson for PETA.
※The animals would be subject to mutilation, testing without anesthesia and other forms of painful mistreatment. Since these monkeys were not allowed to be exported, they were instead going to be used for experimentation,§ she added.

Regodon also told FMT that the planned facility was part of a worrying trend in ※weaker§ countries such as Malaysia. According to the PETA spokesperson, corporations that were based in countries with more stringent laws tend to set up their operations in countries where there was no applicable animal rights law.

※Last year, a French company wanted to come to Johor to do the same thing. We then went to meet several EU ministers in the country, and this project was stalled,§ she said.

Asked where most of the test animals came from, Regodon said that she did not know. Also present was DAP Senator S Ramakrishnan, who explained that while Pakatan Rakyat was not aware of animal testing as a whole, he was personally following the issue.

6,000 signatures gathered
- Petition

In a statement to the media, Ramakrishnan said that tests on animals did not equate to successful usage on humans. He also said Malaysian laws should be amended so that it would be legal to test on humans, so long as they wanted to use the products in question.

SPCA Selangor's chair Christine Chin also said it had gathered over 6,000 signatures in an online petition.

It will be submitted to Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak as soon as it reaches the 10,000-mark.

At the moment, PETA does not have a branch in Malaysia. Its nearest branch is located in the Philippines.

MDDB Notice Board

WE ARE SHOCKED!

We are posting this with a very heavy heart. A friend, Eileen, who is an independent rescuer called us this morning to say that someone had informed her of a dog that had met with an accident in PJ 每 somewhere in Taman Megah. This is Eileen*s message after the dog had been found dead. She had also sent some pics.

The dog died right in front of a newly opened cafe in Taman Megah nearby to Lim Kok Wing institute. He has a collar on. Was believed to have been hit by a car, Both rear legs have been crushed and can't move. Have been there for several days but no one came forward to help. Somebody left a packet of rice but doubt the poor boy could move to eat. What has our society come to??? Poor dog in terrible suffering May he RIP. May his death not in vain but help raise awareness that people can do something for injured dogs.

The person who had called told her he was informed the dog, which had a shattered leg, had been lying there for the last three to four days. We are shocked 每 why didn*t anyone even bother to help this poor dog. What about its owners 每 did they know that their dog was missing? We made immediate arrangements to rescue the dog but when the caller went back to the scene this afternoon, the poor dog was dead. However, it was still alive when he had passed by in the morning. We shudder to think the pain, fear, hunger and thirst the poor dog must have endured these last few days. Why didn*t anyone even think about calling the SPCA, PAWS or even us 每 as we are certain that there would have been many people who had seen this dog. What is most appalling is that people can actually sit and eat at the restaurant while the dog was lying there dying! If anyone of you happen to come across this blog posting 每SHAME ON YOU! Dogs are mammals just like us that also undergo all the pain and emotions that we are capable of experiencing. Had he been rescued on the day of the accident or even the second or third day 每 the dog may still be alive. So, we beg you people 每 next time you see an injured animal on the streets 每 don*t look the other way. Help it! If its money that you don*t want to spend 每 you can always call us for a reimbursement 每 we will pay you back even if it takes our entire month*s salaries. This lack of apathy towards animals in need of help is indicative of a defective society. We just can*t believe that not even one person had cared enough to help. To motorists, next time you hit a cat or a dog 每 please do the right thing 每 doesn*t just drive or scoot off. RIP doggie 每 we wish we had known of you earlier. Just look at the number of cars and traffic in the area - yet no one cared.




The number of cars parked near the dog - yet no one cared.


The poor boy - lost his life in vain.

Re: [melmel] DBKL DOG POUND CRUELTY [In reply to] Can't Post

KUALA LUMPUR: Hordes of people and more than a dozen dogs paid their last respects to animal rescuer Sabrina Yeap at the Nirvana Memorial Centre here yesterday.

The memorial centre's management decided to allow dogs to the wake because canines were very near and dear to the founder of animal sanctuary Furry Friends Farm (FFF).

The canines that were brought to the centre included two that were trained to be therapy dogs under FFF's Dr Dog programme.

The two dogs, Dr Kylie and Dr Samm, spent the entire morning at Yeap's wake. Sad goodbye: Rover, aged four, which was adopted from FFF, paying his last respects to Yeap at the Nirvana Memorial Centre in Sungai Besi, Kuala Lumpur. The canine was named by Yeap.

Other dogs present were those adopted from FFF and other rescue groups, such as Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) and Garden of Eden (GOE), as well as pets that accompanied their owners.

Yeap died of leukaemia on Tuesday. She was 49.

According to FFF volunteer Wendy Goh, Dr Kylie was one of Yeap's favourites due to her calm demeanour.

The Dr Dog programme was special to Yeap and she took much pride in ensuring that the dogs went on to serve the elderly and special children as therapy dogs, said Goh.

She said the founder of the Dr Dog programme, Dr Jill Robinson, had given her blessings to continue the programme in Malaysia.

Among those who paid their last respects was independent rescuer Connie Foong, 56, who had helped Yeap during the Pulau Ketam dog dumping tragedy a few years ago.

Foong was among Yeap's core group of rescuers who had removed dogs that were dumped by Pulau Ketam residents on a nearby mangrove island.

Foong said it was unfair that Yeap had died at such a young age.

She sacrificed her life for dogs and was a role model to all animal rescuers, Foong said.

FFF spokesman Myza Nordin said that the dogs at the sanctuary were safe and in good hands.

She dismissed as unfounded vicious rumours that the dogs were now in a limbo.

This is untrue and we hope that those who are spreading these rumours will stop immediately. Please show Sabrina some respect, Myza said.

Yeap's funeral service will be at 10am at Parlour No 13 at the centre today.

The cortege will then leave for Nirvana Memorial Park, Shah Alam, for cremation.

Her ashes will be scattered in the sea at Port Klang tomorrow afternoon.

Yeap, an orphan, leaves behind 200 dogs, 150 cats, countless friends and admirers.

Sad Farewell for Sabrina Yeap

SHAH ALAM: Renowned animal rescuer Sabrina Yeap was taken on her final journey to the Nirvana Memorial Park accompanied by two of her most favourite rescued dogs shih tzu Meow Meow and Pulau Ketam hero mixed-breed dog Kuning.

Kuning was among the 400 dogs dumped by Pulau Ketam residents on a mangrove island in 2009.

The dog had swam out to a nearby fishing pontoon and started helping Furry Friends Farm (FFF) rescuers to lure dogs out of the swampy island.

A team of therapy dogs, which were trained under FFF's Dr Dog programme, were also present at Yeap's cremation yesterday morning.

Loyal buddies: Yeaps friends and furry pals gathering in front of her cortege before leaving for the cremation.

Yeap's ashes were later scattered in the sea off Port Klang.

One of FFF's international volunteers John Landon, who flew in from Melbourne, Australia, to attend the funeral, broke down in tears as he spoke about Yeap, who died of leukaemia on Tuesday.

She was the hardest working person I have ever known and I never imagined that this would happen to her.

She had also done a lot of nice things for me and I will miss her very much, added Landon, who will remain here for a few weeks to help oversee FFF operations.

Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) rescue coordinator Irene Low said her organisation would always be grateful to Yeap for the help she had rendered.

When we started off in late 2008, we had very little. Sabrina gave us 50 bags of dog food and paid off our RM10,000 veterinary bill to help us through.

Yeap's ashes being strewn at sea after the cremation.

MDDB will always treasure her for that thoughtful and kind gesture, said Low, who led the MDDB entourage yesterday.

Feline rescue group Stray Cats Rescue and Treatment Community Help (Scratch) founder Suzana Sulaiman, who flew in from Penang, said the animal rescue fraternity had lost a valuable member.

It's a very sad day for all of us, Suzana said.

FFF volunteer Victor Chee said he had started helping out at the sanctuary with his brother William and mother Jennifer Ng after Yeap took in a stray dog that they rescued three months ago.

Although she had many dogs to take care of, she did not say no and that was why we decided to volunteer at the sanctuary, Chee said.

Yeap, who was orphaned when she was just a month old after her parents died in an accident, did not have a single relative in Malaysia.

Her doctor father and her mother had eloped to Malaysia from China and lost touch with their families.

Yeap grew up in a temple and her 200-odd dogs, 150 cats and countless loyal friends were her only family.

Meanwhile, FFF spokesman Myza Nordin said arrangements were being made to consolidate the sanctuary's operations

Food Donations To Furry Friends Farm

SPCA Selangor and animal rescuers met on the 18th of July at the SPCA Selangor Humane Education Centre to discuss immediate plans to provide assistance to Furry Friends Farm (FFF), following the demise of its founder Sabrina Yeap on Tuesday. In attendance were FFF spokesperson Myza Nordin, FFF volunteers, Save A Stray, Cherishlife Home, petfinder.my, Project Second Chance, Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better and other animal rescuers.

Myza confirmed that there are over 30 volunteers who have stepped in to care for the animals, and that a committee will be formed soon to govern the organization. Until then, FFF is not soliciting any cash donations. SPCA Selangor has volunteered to be a food collection centre, and has offered food donations as well as treatment, vaccinations and neutering for the animals at FFF for the next 3 months. MDDB has offered to sponsor the monthly water supply from Syabas.

Food donations from the public started coming in immediately (in total 333kg of dog food and 58kg of cat food), and SPCA Selangor has donated an additional 500kg of rice, 500 Doxycycline tablets and 10 boxes of disposable gloves. The current FFF operations coordinator Mr Yong picked up the first batch of donated items on the 21st of July.

Somali who helped to care for pet throws it into manhole


PETALING JAYA: The deliberate killing of a pet dog by two men who were caught on video throwing it into a manhole has raised the hackles of animal lovers.

Worse, the persons who killed the dog had earlier volunteered to care for the pet, claims the owner, a Jordanian student.

I went back to Jordan on June 24. My housemate's friend, a Somali student, offered to care for my dog Kanilla for a month, said the 19-year-old, adding that the female dog was a cross between a Pitt Bull and a Dalmatian.

On July 19, the owner was shocked when he received a message from the Somali student claiming that Kanilla had run away.

Further distress awaited the owner when he came back to Malaysia on July 26.
My housemate showed me a video of the Somali student and another person throwing Kanilla into a manhole in Cyberjaya,'' he said.

He said he was broken-hearted over the cruelty inflicted upon Kanilla.

Cruelty comes in many forms but this is particularly very shocking. I urge the authorities to take the necessary action and to make a stand that animal abuse would not be tolerated in Malaysia. CHRISTINE CHIN

The owner claimed that the perpetrators had used his housemate's laptop to transfer some files, including the offending video, and had forgotten to erase them after that.

He has lodged a police report at the Cyberjaya police station on July 31 with help from the Selangor Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).

Cruelty comes in many forms but this is particularly very shocking,'' said SPCA chairman Christine Chin.

I urge the authorities to take the necessary action and to make a stand that animal abuse would not be tolerated in Malaysia.

Stills of the video were also forwarded to canine welfare project Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) which posted the pictures on its Facebook page.

The posting garnered countless comments from enraged people from Malaysia as well as overseas,

Among those who commented was renowned bassist Andy Peterson who said: Get the one who took the picture too.

A Malaysian living in Canada, Juliana Vincent-Phillips, said the perpetrators should be deported, adding that no one will miss these scums.

MDDB rescue coordinator Irene Low said more police reports were being lodged to lend support to the SPCA's initial report.

She urged the public to obtain the sample report from the MDDB Facebook page at www.facebook.com/MalaysianDogsDeserveBetter

Protest at varsity over dog abuse


ABOUT 20 people from the Animal Action Group gathered at Multimedia University (MMU) campus in Cyberjaya yesterday to condemn two foreign students who allegedly threw a dog into a manhole recently.

PUTRAJAYA: The group, headed by its adviser, Sharul Nizam Rahim, also handed over a memorandum to the university's head of corporate communications, Abdul Lazi Nordin.

Based on messages, telephone calls and feedback from several overseas quarters, Sharul said the incident had given Malaysia a bad name.

He said Malaysia was also named as an animal abuser country.

"We want MMU and the police to conduct a thorough investigation into this matter and take appropriate action against the students.

"I know our group is very small, but we are here to seek justice for animals. They are also living creatures.

"Most of us here are also Muslims, and our religion does not teach us to abuse animals, including dogs," Sharul said.

Pictures and videos of two African students throwing a dog into a manhole in Cyberjaya went viral on Facebook last week.

It was alleged that the two, entrusted by another African friend to care for the dog during his absence, threw the mutt into the manhole.

Their action drew ire from Facebook users, with many calling for the police to take immediate action against them.

MMU said they strongly condemned the act, which showed a disturbing lack of empathy and compassion on the part of the perpetrators.

Abdul Lazi said the university viewed the act as heinous and despicable.

"Should the university receives confirmation that our students were indeed involved, we will not hesitate to take action.

"Based on MMU's records, we do have a student whose name matches the one stated in the police reports.

"However, we are unable to confirm that this person in our database is indeed the perpetrator of the heinous act. As such, the university will leave it to the police to investigate," Abdul Lazi added.
He said MMU would cooperate with police.

"Based on police's findings, MMU will implement any action deemed necessary by the university's disciplinary board.

"We will not hesitate to mete out harsh punishment if the student is found guilty."
