Animal Experimentation

Animal Experimentation has been a problem and it still remains being one of the biggest problems.

Every animal has rights just as a human being's do which that applies to everyone is why Europe has stopped testing on animals since 2009 from being tested by cosmetics, if a person kills an animal for example buffalo, deer, goat, etc... without some type of permission that person can go to prison or get a fine for
