Animal experimentation is messed up

Lab experiment monkeyThe homes of two UC Santa Cruz researchers were attacked by animal rights extremists with fire bombs, purportedly for using lab animals in UCSC scientific experimentation. “I don’t know what they did to deserve that,” a 19-year-old student bystander told the NYT “I think that’s kind of messed up to do that to someone’s home.”
 
Sure it’s messed up. Too bad not even the news articles about this case could spare a sentence about how lab animals are mistreated. What is it that has the animal liberation extremists so upset?
