The New Iberia Research Center of the University of Louisiana,
Lafayette (ULL/NIRC), is an extremely secretive place. The little
information available about the condition of the victims – chimpanzees
and rhesus monkeys – is horribly shocking, to say the least.
Yet this facility receives millions of dollars in federal money! And
this is only one of the many research centers that receive “easy money”!
Think about that: we taxpayers are subsidizing totally unnecessary

Dear Dr. Gibbens:
We have become aware of the shameful waste of taxpayers’ money and
the unspeakable, unnecessary suffering of primates at the New Iberia
Research Center of the University of Louisiana, Lafayette (ULL/NIRC).
Please use your office to take serious action against ULL/NIRC and
put an end to this corruption masquerading as “scientific research.”
We look forward to your reply. You can contact us at the address in
