Primate Experimentation in the US: The Facts We Weren’t Supposed to Know

An inspection report for September 3, 2002 discusses seven individually housed primates in one room. “The largest of these was exhibiting stereotypic pacing and limited use of an enlarged cage. There was no evidence of any real enrichments being provided to these animals.”

On 1/22/03 the University of Pittsburgh Plumborough Primate facility was cited for the use of expired drugs, inadequate care of primates recovering from anesthesia, inadequate storage of primate food, and unnecessary isolation of primates.

In March of 2003 several drugs are listed as being expired and primates are listed as being housed in cages that are too small.

An inspection report for May 19, 2003 lists primates utilized in an experiment that restricts their access to water. However, “The items listed to monitor their health failed to consider even rudimentary signs of dehydration.”
