War on pigs

Pigs in the care of Defence Research and Development Canada are anaesthetized then exposed to Sarin gas and other nerve agents, have their limbs severed, are crushed, and will be exposed to blast waves.  Then they’re put down, natch.

To ensure ethical treatment of its animals, DRDC has an oversight committee and is inspected by the Canadian Council on Animal Care. A spokeswoman for the federally funded body confirmed the Suffield lab has a “certificate of good animal practice” and meets the agency’s standards for animal research.

About 69,000 farm animals were used by Canadian researchers in 2007, the council reports.
