THANK YOU, MOUSE!
The photographs show authentic laboratory mice from the strains DBA, BALB/c and C57Bl/6. We all should know them. They have to do with each one of us. To no other creature do humans owe as much as to the laboratory mouse. It is our stand-in at the research front. It gives its life so that we may live. Can this be morally justified – or might it be an ethical necessity? We must endure this dilemma. Research facilities across the globe produce and use legions of laboratory mice every day as an anonymous mass of animal matter. We want to give these creatures back their individuality and personality and report their remarkable story.
