U travnju 1985., gotovo 1000 životinja (1 majmun, 21 mačka, 9 oposuma, 35 zečeva, 38 golubova, 70 gerbila, 300 miševa, zečeva, te 460 štakora) spašeno je s University of California u Riversideu, USA. Dokumenti i video snimke pokazuju da je akcija uzrokovala otprilike 700.000 dolara štete. Te snimke su pokazane u medijima kako bi prikazale vivisekciju točno onakvu kakva jest. Video pod nazivom "Britches" napravljen je da dokumentira priču o uspjehu jednog mladog, djeteta majmuna, koji je bio izoliran u čeličnom kavezu nakon što su mu zašili oči kako bi na njemu vršili eksperimente vezane za sljepoću.

In April 1985, almost 1000 animals were liberated (1 monkey, 21 cats, 9 opossums, 35 rabbits, 38 pigeons, 70 gerbils, 300 mice, rabbits and 460 rats) from the University of California at Riverside, US. Documents and videotapes were taken with an estimated US$700.000 damage caused. These videotapes were shown to the media to expose vivisection at it´s worst. A video entitled „Britches" was made to document the success story of one infant primate who was isolated in a steel cage after animal researchers had crudely stitched his eyes shut for a blindness experiment. Grant Mack, former president of the American Council of the Blind, called the US $275.000 experiment „one of the most repugnant and ill-conceived boondoggies that I´ve heard about for a long time."
