Ricky Gervais supports BUAV opposition to controversial kitten experiments carried out at Cardiff University

24/07/2012

International comedian Ricky Gervais stands with the BUAV against the shocking experiments which have taken place at Cardiff University in which kittens were raised in complete darkness or deprived of sight in one eye by having their eyelids sewn shut.

Ricky told the BUAV: “I am appalled that kittens are being deprived of sight in one eye by having their eyelids sewn shut. I thought sickening experiments like these were a thing of the past. I support the BUAV in calling for this research to be stopped.”

The BUAV has also received some great media coverage on the front page of today's Daily Mirror and also in the Daily Express, Daily Record and The Telegraph.
