Duke University

USDA documents regarding inspections at Duke University performed on 9/17/02 indicate repeat violations of the Environmental Enrichment program for primates. The majority of the primates at this facility are still individually housed. One specific owl monkey is noted as exhibiting symptoms of psychological distress. These symptoms include: self-clasping, poor haircoat, and depression. This is significant because Duke University routinely handles over 400 primates per year.
