Primate Products Negligence Leads to Monkey Strangulation;
National Watchdog Group Files Complaint, Calls for $10,000 Federal Fine
MIAMI, FL – Sensitive federal records have revealed a preventable monkey death at Primate Products – a Miami area monkey dealer – according to a national research watchdog organization, which made the fatality public today.
A heavy fine - $10,000 – should be leveled at the Primate Products laboratory, said SAEN (Stop Animal Exploitation NOW), a national research watchdog organization, which uncovered the death & negligence. SAEN has filed a federal complaint with the USDA, which oversees research laboratories.
SAEN said the records reveal that a monkey strangled to death after becoming entangled in an enrichment device.
“Primate Products has clearly demonstrated incompetence that has killed a monkey," said Michael A. Budkie, A.H.T., Executive Director, SAEN. "This bungling laboratory deserves the maximum penalty allowable under the law."
The NIH report and SAEN's Official Complaint are available upon request from SAEN.
