LARGEST EVER ANIMAL LAB COMPLAINT FILED by USDA

50 MAJOR U.S. RESEARCH LABS HIT WITH MASSIVE U.S.D.A COMPLAINT

MADISON, WI - A national research watchdog organization has filed the largest official complaint in U.S. history against 50 nationally-known laboratories that perform animal experimentation including Harvard, the Salk Institute, University of California, Johns Hopkins and Princeton.

Details of the exhaustive complaint were made public Thursday in a series of news conferences at different laboratories. Photographs of abuse secreted out of these labs by workers - were also made public.

Filed by SAEN, a research watchdog organization based in Cincinnati, the complaint alleges laboratories deliberately withhold information from government oversight agencies, and abuse primates during experimentation by denying food and water and confining them to restraint chairs. "Fifty prestigious institutions are systematically violating federal laws and abusing thousands of animals in sadistic, wasteful testing," said Michael A. Budkie, A.H.T., Executive Director, SAEN.

"Laboratories at Salk, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, UCLA, and dozens of other sites are torturing animals and lying about the experiments to the U.S. Department of Agriculture," he added.

"We believe that these 50 labs may only be the tip of the iceberg," said Budkie. "60,000 primates suffer and die in U.S. labs every year. These findings are only the beginning of our investigations."

Copies of the SAEN report and complaint are available upon request from Michael Budkie at: SAEN@worldnet.att.net
