Resume: This article discusses the problematics of the legal status of laboratory animals as a separate category of legal objects. The subject of this research is the Russian legislation in the field of regulation on the laboratory animals used in experiments. Despite the propagation of the humanistic principles and ideology of gentle attitude towards nature, there is still insufficient progress made in resolving this problem. This research discusses the bases that substantiate the specific nature and significance of this issue within the modern legal system. This work presents all the main positions of legal regulation on the use of animals in scientific experiments, which until now was only partially described in the works of modern researches. This category of animals does not fall under the faunistic legislation, but the specific manner in which they are used is not subject to the norms of the civil law. The special legislation that applies in this case is still at a stage of development within the Russian Federation.
Keywords: Animal rights, laboratory animals, animal protection, experimental work, experiments on animals, wildlife, 3R, vivisection.
