The U.S. Navy squeezes the life out of sheep and other animals in deadly decompression and oxygen toxicity experiments. Not only are these tests pointless, they’re also inconsistent with international standards adopted by our allies that no longer use animals for such tests. PETA is demanding that the U.S. Navy end these horrific experiments, and you can help.

PETA is urging the U.S. Navy to end these horrific tests permanently and replace them with human-relevant, non-animal research methods.
