Caught in the Act: the Feldberg Investigation

by Melody MacDonald - £4.99  Jon Carpenter Publishing (1994)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781897766057 | ISBN 10: 189776605x

In May 1990 Professor Wilhelm Feldberg, of the National Institute for Medical Research, London, lost his licence to carry out animal experimentation, thanks to a courageous and harrowing undercover investigation by animal rights activist Melody MacDonald. She bravely witnessed and documented Feldberg's cruel experiments on conscious animals, experiments he had been carrying out for over sixty years. At the same time the Home Office was claiming that laboratory standards for animal experiments were rigorously enforced. MacDonald's investigation exposed the horrors of Feldberg's experiments and the complete disregard for the welfare of laboratory animals.

"There are scientists who would do anything, ultimately, to gain scientific knowledge. Professor Feldberg was obviously in that category. The pain and suffering endured by countless animals in the professor's laboratory over many years will haunt all readers of this book ... These revelations must not be wasted - nor the animals forgotten."
(Virginia McKenna)
