The Primate Experimentation Scandal, 2005: An Investigative Report
By Michael A. Budkie, A.H.T., Executive Director, SAEN

Emory University/Yerkes National Primate Research Center

The 2003 progress report for the Yerkes National Primate Research Center, which is affiliated, with Emory University in Atlanta also discusses social housing. The report states that the main station of this facility houses 1270 primates and that 34% (up from only 27%) are socially housed. The more appropriate way to look at this is that 66% of these primates (838) are still in isolation housing.

At the Yerkes National Primate Research Center 94 primates, or 37.5% of those who died of non-experimental causes died of gastro-intestinal tract disease. This is a clear indication of stress, and it is compounded by the deaths of 20 more primates to fights/trauma. This would bring the death toll for stress related issues to 45% or 114.
