Demonstrators run away from the Instituto Royal laboratory to escape tear gas fired by police, as a police car burns along a road leading to the lab Saturday in Sao Roque, Brazil. Clashes between animal rights activists and police outside the lab came one day after activists broke into the lab and released beagle dogs being used to test for adverse effects of drugs manufactured by the pharmaceutical industry. Protesters returned Saturday to see if there were more animals in the building.
