At Liverpool University over 70 day-old baby chicks were tortured in a Salmonella experiment. At two weeks old some of the birds were infected with the disease by oral gavage (force feeding by metal tube, like foie gras). They were forced to endure this procedure multiple times in order to be inoculated against the disease before the infection stage. Their symptoms were reported: internal inflammation, liver lesions and spleen damage. Throughout various stages of the trial some chicks were killed by having their necks snapped. Tiny, baby birds.

Eighteen rabbits at Liverpool University were immunosuppressed and then had bacteria injected directly into their spines every other day for ten days to induce a fungal disease.
