"Exposing the truth to wipe
out animal experimentation"
UL Primate Center Accusations
Posted: Oct 19, 2009 08:29 PM EDT
The UL New Iberia Primate Research lab is once again being
inspected carefully after the co-founder of Stop Animal Exploitation
Now filed another complaint claiming neglect of primates.
TV10 reported Monday night; federal charges had been filed
against the lab. However, we now know it is only a complaint that
the USDA says they are looking into.
Michael Budkie told us in a press conference Tuesday he filed the
complaint with the USDA last week.
After a Nightline special on primate abuse at the lab aired back

doing in relation to neglect leading to the deaths of primates.
But now Budkie said he comes with more data and more research on
at least 1500 other primates, many of which he claims were
UL also released a statement saying quote; "Budkie routinely and
frequently alleges animal welfare violations at universities and
other research facilities around the country."
The university takes seriously any allegation of animal
mistreatment. A subcommittee will meet to review the records of
animals cited by Budkie in his latest letter to the USDA."
Meanwhile, the USDA tells us they will conduct an inspection in
the near future.
