Duke University

USDA documents regarding inspections at Duke University performed on 9/17/02 indicate problems with the Environmental Enrichment program for primates. One specific owl monkey is noted as exhibiting symptoms of psychological distress. These symptoms include: self-clasping, poor haircoat, and depression. These violations follow a previous inspection (8/21/01) which also listed violations in the area of environmental enrichment.

This is significant because Duke University routinely handles over 400 primates per year.
