A new video has appeared of dogs bleeding to death on the floor in the same German toxicology laboratory where monkeys were filmed chained in metal armor.
The German animal activist organization Soko Tierschutz claims together with Cruelty Free International that the images were recorded at the LPT Laboratory of Pharmacology and Toxicology in Mienenbuttel, Hamburg.
The newest clip that emerges shows beagles struggling against their handlers while letting pipes penetrate their throats.
Many became immobile on the floor in cages with metal chains around their necks and a dog is standing in front of his door surrounded by what looks like puddles of blood.
This is the latest video that was released after images from earlier in the week had monkeys scream in pain with their heads locked in metal armor.
An undercover activist was given a job at the research facility from December 2018 to March 2019, where he says he witnessed beagles, monkeys, cats and rabbits tests for companies around the world.

The undercover worker said the animals were kept in horrible circumstances.
He claimed that the animals were forcibly treated by the workers, who are not trained animal keepers.
Friedrich Mullen from Soko Tierschutz said: & The animals even waddled their tails when they were taken to be killed, the dogs were desperately seeking human contact. & # 39;

He added: & # 39; The worst treatment was saved for the monkeys.
& # 39; The macaque variety of monkeys are small, relatively light primates, often used for animal testing in LPT. They are kept in small cages under tight conditions.
& # 39; Many of the animals have developed compulsive tendencies and are spinning in circles. & # 39;

The cats are said to be given up to 13 injections per day by non-trained professionals and left behind to suffer.
The animal activists have reported the case to the investigating police.
They also claim that the laws in Germany that protect animals against experimentation are not strict enough and demand that the laws be tightened.
LPT is a family-run contract testing laboratory that conducts toxicity testing for pharmaceutical, industrial, and agrochemical companies around the world to meet government and regulatory requirements.
According to the Cruelty Free International organization: & # 39; Toxicity tests poison animals to see how much of a chemical or drug is needed to cause serious damage, in an attempt to measure what a & # 39; can be a safe & # 39; dose for people.
& # 39; Animals are injected with or made to eat or inhale increasing amounts of a substance to measure the toxic effects that can be serious, including vomiting, internal bleeding, breathlessness, fever, weight loss, lethargy, skin problems, organ failure and even death. No anesthetics or pain relief is offered. & # 39;

Michelle Thew, Chief Executive of Cruelty Free International stated: “Our investigation has revealed terrible animal suffering, inadequate care, bad practices and breaches of European and German legislation.
& # 39; We want the Laboratory of Pharmacology and Toxicology (LPT) to be closed. We also advocate extensive research into the use of animals in toxicity testing in Europe, including the UK.
& # 39; Each investigation undoubtedly shows a similar story of misery and ignoring the law. & # 39;

After the images were released, the authorities in the Hamburg region carried out a check on the facility and confirmed some of the allegations made by animal activists.
A local government spokesperson said: & # 39; We found the cages far too small, just as the activists claimed. & # 39;
The local regulatory authority Laves – the State Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety of Lower Saxony has filed a complaint with the public prosecutor in Luneburg for alleged violations of animal protection legislation.
Minister of Agriculture Barbara Otte-Kinast said: & # 39; If these allegations prove to be true, they must be punished and prompt consequences must be made.
& # 39; A possible withdrawal of the animal testing license is being checked by Laves. & # 39;
If the permit is withdrawn, the animal laboratory must be closed with immediate effect.
The veterinary inspection office was also asked why they did not identify any irregularities during the checks.
A spokesperson said: & # 39; We are investigating this. & # 39;
The spokesperson for the local authorities said: & # 39; The laboratory is now being given the opportunity to perform the correct procedures and will be fined. & # 39;
