Motoring giant implicated in experimenting with animals

International motoring giant, Volkswagen, said in a statement that the head of their external relations and sustainability department, Thomas Steg, stepped down from his position after experiments in which monkeys were exposed to diesel exhaust were exposed.

It came to light that experiments on monkeys were funded by at least three German motor manufacturers. A group of scientists came across a room where a number of monkeys were exposed to exhaust gasses from vehicles in an effort to determine the effect of the exhaust gasses on the animals.

Funding for these experiments came from Volkswagen, Daimler and BMW. The Managing director of Volkswagen, Matthias Mueller, expressed his regret for Volkswagen’s involvement in the project and described the practice as disgusting.
