Extracts from this document...

Introduction

  1. Animal Farm.

    Boxer now nears this age, and he looks forward to a comfortable life in the pasture as a reward for his immense labors. Food grows ever more scarce, and all animals receive reduced rations, except for the pigs and the dogs.

  2. Animal Testing Should be Banned

    Animals that survive are destroyed. Additionally, when one laboratory's research on animals establishes something significant, scores of other labs repeat the experiment, and more thousands of animals are needlessly tortured and killed. Few labs buy their animal test subjects from legitimate pet stores and the majority use illegal pet dealers.
