Please contact Dr. Gibbens and demand that he take immediate action against the University of California, Davis, for all violations of the animal Welfare Act. Be sure to insist on severe penalties because negligence at this lab has killed numerous primates and caused others to suffer horribly.

Animal rights group to protest at UC Davis

By Jonathan Mumm, News10.net, Wednesday, July 18, 2012

Watch video here.

An animal rights group out of Ohio claimes that a UC Davis monkey was found dead hanging by a bungee cord and that the corpse of another was left untended long enough to develop maggots.

Stop Animal Exploitation Now is in the midst of what it bills as the "Open the Cages Tour,' with a planned stop at the UC Davis Primate Center on Thursday. Other protest sites have included San Diego and Los Angeles.

For its part, UC Davis issued the following statement Wednesday:

"Animals housed at the California National Primate Research Center receive the best veterinary care, and the research program is strictly regulated by law. The faculty and staff who work with animals are committed to high quality care and animal welfare."

UC Davis also cited the advances it has made in its research for the treatment of HIV/AIDS, autism and alzheimer's.
