EU Commission report on Animal Testing

The EU Commission has published its report on the statistical data of animal experimentation in the EU (data from 2011).

According to the report, 11,5 Million animals have been used for testing in 2011 (half a million less than in the last report from 2009).

This small decrease is good but not a guarantee for an overall picture because due to a lack of an comprehensive animal experimentation strategy of the EU, animal testing is increasing.
