Primate Health and Well-being at the California Primate Research Center (UCD): Negligence, Stress, and Suffering

Introduction

The University of California at Davis is one of the 10 largest primate research laboratories in the United States confining over 4000 primates during any given year. According to government reports this facility receives $81 million per year (for the 2002 2003) from the federal government for the performance of primate experimentation.

Legitimate concerns have been raised regarding the condition of primates within large facilities like UC Davis. Animal advocates are clearly worried about the suffering endured by the titi monkeys and rhesus monkeys incarcerated at the UC Davis primate Center. Therefore, we have performed an investigation of the health and welfare of the primates at this facility based upon post-mortem records for the period 5/1/02 4/30/03. This period coincides with the reporting period for the annual progress reports filed annually by the primate center with their funding agency the National Center for Research Resources. 583 primates died at the UC Davis facility during this period and the records of these deaths have formed the basis of this report.
