Infant Primate Deaths

During the reporting period for this examination there were 142 infant/neonatal deaths at the CPRC. This contrasts with 646 total births. This computes to a 22% infant mortality rate. Additionally, in the older cases of infant deaths (non-stillbirth/non-fetal) over half were suffering from inanition (severe weight loss) or dehydration (26 of 47/25 of 47).

These symptoms are indicative of serious conditions which have progressed to a catastrophic conclusion. In other words, these animals were allowed to suffer needlessly because their conditions progressed to an unnecessarily severe ending. Apparently either their decline was totally unnoticed, or their conditions were ignored until they were found dead.
