"Exposing the truth to wipe
out animal experimentation"
Animal Rights Group Claims Monkey Mistreatment At VCU
Posted: Oct 15, 2008 12:14 AM EDT
First it was the degree given to former Richmond Police Chief
Rodney Monroe. Then it was that secretive research contract with
tobacco giant Philip Morris. Now, an animal rights group is accusing
VCU of mistreating monkeys. The Ohio-based group S.A.E.N or "Stop
Animal Exploitation Now" wants the feds to investigate the deaths of
two Rhesus monkeys. One of the animals was euthanized. The group
also released a report detailing experiments in which monkeys at VCU
become addicted to drugs, then are forced to undergo spontaneous
withdrawal, experiencing pain. VCU sent us a statement, saying that
the animal research program has been fully accredited by the
association for assessment and accredidation of laboratory animal
care for more than 40 years, and that they strictly comply with the
animal welfare act and all federal standards for use and care of
animals in testing, research and training.
