OH - Watchdog Group Protests Animal Research At WPAFB

UPDATED: 10:14 pm EDT April 20, 2008

WPAFB, Ohio -- A watchdog group says that research at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base is wasting tax dollars, and taking innocent lives.
 
A group called Stop Animal Exploitation Now is protesting the use of animal research at the base.

The group spent Sunday on the sidewalks outside the base with one goal, to let people know that there is an alterative. They said instead of experimenting on animals, scientists could use human tissue grown in labs or mannequins for medical testing.

The group claims that at least 11 different projects inside the research labs at Wright-Patt are experimenting on animals. They said not only is it unethical, but the group worries that it is illegal, saying there is no regulatory agency for the Department of Defense.
 
Protesters said they estimate that $1.1 million of taxpayer money is used each year to fund the research, and that those dollars could have a different purpose, like buying more body armor for soldiers in Iraq.

At this time, there is no word from Wright-Patterson representatives on their response to the allegations.
