Jackson, Mississippi 39216

Dr. Grady,

This letter is made pursuant to the public records act of the State of Mississippi, Miss. Code Ann. 25-61-1 et. Seq.

This letter is to direct you, your officers and/or agents to provide me with copies of all currently active primate research protocols, all animal care records for primates for the last year including, but not limited to, daily observation logs, primate necropsy reports, etc. Also requested are copies of all visual records for primate experimentation for the same period including photos, video tapes, DVDs, etc.

The requester is prepared to pay for al actual costs, fees, pursuant to Miss. Code Ann. 25-61-7 up to an initial amount of $100. If the fees will exceed this amount provide me with a detailed estimation of the fee, in advance before performing said work.

The requester asserts that all records requested above are public records as defined by Miss. Cone Ann. 25-61-3(b). Should you come to an opposite decision, please segregate all claimed exempted portions, provide access to the remaining information and provide me with a written statement of your position with reference to the exemptions of the law(s) or any other provision that prohibits said disclosure that you believe to apply, pursuant to the Miss. Code Ann. 25-61-5(2).

The requester, further, requests a response to this request pursuant to your written rules no later than is allowed pursuant to Miss. Code Ann. 25-61-5(1).

Additionally, in light of the highly invasive nature of the research of Dr. Paul May, William Woolverton and Wu Zhou, I would also like to request a tour of all University of Mississippi facilities in which primates are housed or experimented upon.

Rats, mice, birds, amphibians and other animals have been excluded from coverage by the Animal Welfare Act. Therefore research facility reports do not include these animals. As a result of this situation, a blank report, or one with few animals listed, does not mean that a facility has not performed experiments on non-reportable animals. A blank form does mean that the facility in question has not used covered animals (primates, dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, pigs, sheep, goats, etc.). Rats and mice alone are believed to comprise over 90% of the animals used in experimentation. Therefore the majority of animals used at research facilities are not even counted.
