1. University of Louisiana, (New Iberia, Lafayette (ULL) -- ULL has been crowned as the worst primate lab in the U.S. Cited this year for losing three primates in a transfer chute, who all died and decomposed, the facility has been stunned by recent allegations from a whistleblower - New Iberia Whistleblower Statement, 2011. ULL also excludes 869 primates from protection by Animal Welfare Act regulations.

2.

3a. University of Washington, Seattle (UW) -- The UW has recently been fined $10,893 for killing three primates through negligence (1 died of starvation and 2 died of bacterial infections) and exempts 65 primates from protection by Animal Welfare Act regulations.

3b. Princeton University -- Princeton has been issued an “Official Warning’ by the USDA, exempts 92% of their primates from protection by Animal Welfare Act regulations, has had one primate escape, and has been shocked by recent whistleblower revelations including horrifying photos of decapitated primates - Anonymous Statement about Animal Experimentation at Princeton University, September 21, 2011.
