One less target for the AR2008 gathering...

It has been announced that the Novartis Vienna lab is closing down in June. There are 24.863 animals still in the lab - 23,000 mice, 1.700 rats, 93 pigs, 52 rhesus and javan monkeys and hamsters. New animal protection laws ban the killing of animals for no good reason and Vienna city council has informed activists of the VGT that the animals cannot legally be killed so homes need to be found, or the animals are being taken to Novartis labs in Basel, Switzerland.

This is the last primate lab in Austria.
