Primate Morbidity Reports:
"These documents were obtained from a facility that had purchased primates from Alpha Genesis. All of these primates arrived missing digits from either hands or feet, one had "stripped hair coat on left leg." These are minimally indications of stress and potentially indications of severe mental pathologies."
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.
