To the best of our knowledge, no anti-vivisection campaign has ever allowed the public to view an unredacted protocol that takes you right into the labs. That changes now. The NIH is awarding Paul W. Davenport $733,292 annually under Project No. 5R01HL109025-03 to torture cats. According to University of Florida lawyers, beginning on page 21 of Protocol 201107179 are the regulations that govern these experiments. Now you can view this unbelievable sadism in its entirety HERE.

Twenty-two goats, one rabbit and one puppy have died as a result of negligent care on behalf of UF, according to a complaint issued Monday by animal rights group Stop Animal Exploitation NOW.
In two complaints issued to the U.S. Department of Agriculture since August, Stop Animal Exploitation NOW details several incidents beginning in 2011 that violated the Animal Welfare Act.
The first report, filed by UF in January 2012, involves the death of 22 goats due to severe anemia.In the 2011 incident, staff and graduate students performing studies on the goats failed to treat or euthanize them after the study was completed. See the rest of this entry…
“A group of activists from near and far were in Bushy Park, London yesterday night from 10pm until 8am to monitor the ongoing deer cull. The activists say that people will be in the park on unannounced nights and shooters should end their activities forthwith. The activists encourage anyone that wants to help the deer to form their own affinity groups of 2 or more people and patrol the park on any night until the end of the cull.”

When you drive through Fort McCoy, there are acres and acres of sprawling woodlands with some houses and churches interspersed on cleared tracts of land. It is in this quiet and bucolic setting that Frank Stronach has purchased 68,000 acres, at least 30,000 in this area, to operate a mega self-contained concentration camp to imprison thousands of cows. It will have its own shipping, packing, cooking, pet food & rendering plants, and, of course, a slaughterhouse. The roads are littered with logging trucks clearing trees from land that is hidden away far from the streets. While there is still legal wrangling in the courts to stop Sleepy Creek Farms LLC, formerly Adena, from gaining water rights, the multi-billionaire at the helm appears to have largely circumvented the issue.
This hidden slaughterhouse is to begin “test runs” in November!

This is the entrance to the new Sleepy Creek/Edena Slaughterhouse. We believe the actual building is about 100 to 200 yards behind this gate and off to the left. To go beyond this point, one would need to take care of the security cameras first (see below). It is very possible that Frank Stronach has a home somewhere on this newly-paved and well-manicured piece of land.
Three days ago on September 5, Eleventh Hour for Animals published a news story about William L. Castleman who is getting over $73,000 from taxpayers to perform Franken-experiments on innocent dogs.
Earlier today, we received the following “DMCA Complaint” designed to infringe upon our First Amendment right to free speech and freedom of the press:

The University of Florida has had the laws changed in this state twice specifically to prevent activists with Negotiation Is Over from identifying and exposing their vivisectors (the “NIO laws”). The second set of rewritten statutes, which went into effect on July 1, 2014, allows the university to legally redact the names of their “researchers” from public records. So in an effort to fully adhere to the laws in this state, we changed the manner in which we file our open records requests. Rather than filing blanket requests for the animals being tortured, we now file requests for specific vivisectors who are receiving federal funds for their war crimes. This brings us to William L. Castleman. On July 10 we filed a legal request to secure the documents recording his war crimes, fully understanding that his name would be redacted from those files… and yet we’ve still received nothing!!!

Sometime over the next few months I hope to launch the Animal Rights Leadership Council (ARLC), which will be a non-profit dedicated to the recruitment, motivation, activation of activists and the development of and training of leaders for the Animal Rights movement.
No single organization reflects the Animal Rights movement. Most are animal protection and rescue groups. Even the largest and most influential, such as HSUS and the ASPCA, ar not the Animal Rights movement. They make strides in animal welfare, and even greater strides in raising public awareness, but the Animal Rights movement is the sum of all of is working on animal issues in the US and around the world.
For years now, I’ve been stressing that we need to focus on one issue at a time, complete it successfully, and then move on to the next. We are up against a machine that dispatches animals to a global holocaust with ruthless efficiency. Their sole agenda is profits. And whether they like or dislike those with whom they work is irrelevant; they have a job to do. For a start, this is the mentality we must adopt.
Further, we cannot afford to be dilettantes, protesting greyhound races one week, a traveling circus the next, or, my own personal pet peeve, demonstrating against dog meet in Korea… that is, unless you’re actually in Korea!!! When we post pictures of our unorganized and scattered efforts on Facebook, smiling behind our pretty signs that we wave at passing traffic, I can only imagine that industrial abusers are sitting back laughing at us in proportion to the degree I am slumping back in my chair cringing.
This is not to say that these issues are unimportant. Every animal who suffers at the hands of our species matters and our hearts ache every single time we witness another atrocity. But we cannot act on emotion. We need to emulate the enemy to successfully conquer the enemy. If we want to save them all, we need to be strategic, educated, and act intelligently. We need to reap the greatest possible return from our less-than-overwhelming resources. This means that we need to study campaigns, understand what does and does not work, and allow our approaches to evolve accordingly.
Frank Stronach, an 81-year old Australian-Canadian billionaire, appears intent upon making central Florida the slaughterhouse capital of the country. Several years ago, he purchased 30,000 acres in Ocala and Adena Farms was born. According to Beef Magazine, “Stronach is taking the cattle business back to its rangeland roots, and aims to tap into growing demand for grass-fed beef” by combining beef feedlots, slaughter, meatpacking, sales and distribution. Adena had initially requested an allocation of 13 million gallons of water a day to support the massive concentration camp. This operation was successfully halted in 2011, the water-pumping permit being delayed nearly 2 years, because it would threaten the Florida Aquifer and nearby Silver Springs. Undeterred, Stronach has been working feverishly to circumvent the impediments to his profits and in 2014 this insidious massive slaughterhouse project is once again on the table.

Eleventh Hour for Animals has sued the University of Florida three times in as many years to compel disclosure of public records documenting their $400-million-a-year, taxpayer-funded vivisection industry. We won twice. In late 2013, they conceded out of court the day after our third suit was filed. And now in 2014, UF is once again thumbing its nose at Florida State laws. Since January, they have intentionally and deliberately withheld video of the horses they maim. By the late spring, we were able to prove that the previously-requested video exists of vivisectors breaking horses’ legs and recording the progression of lameness as their victims are forced to run on treadmills. While discussions with our own lawyer is privileged, we are now disclosing 8 months of private emails that document UF’s flagrant violation of the law.
