Not like the others. 7 famous albino animals

7 famous albino animals
According to scientists, Albinism is a congenital disorder that robs the skin, hair and eyes of color. Extremely pale, albino animals suffer from sun burns and skin cancers more frequently than non-albinos. Besides, the lack of eye pigmentation can cause problems. In particular, human albinos often require surgery or wear corrective lenses. Born in the wild, albino animals face almost insurmountable odds. Unfortunately, baby albinos – seen as an oddity within their own species and are more visible to predators. Cursed with imperfect vision, these animals may also have other health problems. And those, born in a zoo, are lucky enough to look forward to a relatively comfortable life.

To see daylight for first time in 30 years

To see daylight for first time in 30 years

This heartbreaking photo captures their first interaction with the outside world. To see daylight for first time in 30 years

To see daylight for first time in 30 years
No creature should EVER have to go through this, not for testing or anything. They were made to live, breathe, enjoy sunshine and be free, not be locked up and tortured. I am ashamed to be human. A group of chimpanzees rescued from a laboratory in Austria just got their first dose of fresh air and sunshine in 30 years. Shortly after they were born, these chimps were taken from their mothers and used for experimentation at a pharmaceutical laboratory in Austria. They were exposed to deadly illnesses like HIV and Hepatitis in order to test for possible “cures” and treatments. After a long torturous ordeal they were released to a sanctuary in 1997 but their introduction to fresh air and sunlight had to be slow.

To see daylight for first time in 30 years

This heartbreaking photo captures their first interaction with the outside world. And to think, Ninety-two percent of all drugs that pass animal testing fail the clinical trail phase after they prove ineffective or dangerous to humans. That means that any results that came out of torturing these guys was probably in vain because the likelihood of it working on humans is minuscule.

The torture is over, at least for these lucky few, and their reactions say more about the unethical nature of animal testing than any words ever could (the video was removed from my post).
