Press Releases FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Madison - A national research watchdog organization said today it has filed an "official complaint" against two universities - the University of Wisconsin and Harvard - for conducting painful/stressful experimentation on primates without anesthesia, and lying to federal regulators at the USDA about it.
"Primates are dying in the labs of the University of
Wisconsin who are emaciated, have a total lack body fat, and have
suffered from diseases like pneumonia, encephalitis or meningitis. These
monkeys have suffered severely at the hands of UW researchers, but the
UW won’t even admit that they have felt any pain," said Michael A.
Budkie, A.H.T., Executive Director of SAEN.
"On one hand they say that the experiments are too
invasive/painful to be performed on humans, and yet they also say that
these same projects don't cause primates any pain or distress. You can't
have it both ways," he said.
