Traide tolerated ten hours of injections, being smothered in different lotions, having her hair shaved and irritants being squirted into her eyes as part of a world-wide campaign by Lush and The Humane Society International.

The act took place in a Lush store window on London's Regent Street, one of the UK's busiest shopping precincts.

Passers-by were shocked by the display, with many stopping to take photos and record the gruesome spectacle with their phones.

The Humane Society asserted that the animals are routinely tested in this manner for make-up and perfumes.
