prestigious universities violate the animal welfare act - outdoor enclosure
Unlike inconspicuous mice, primates are protected at least by the Animal Welfare Act.
Unfortunately, even the most famous universities have shown that there is no way to take care of their mammals without extreme and fatal consequences.
S. Department of Agriculture announced on December that they imposed a $24,036 fine on Harvard Medical School for killing four primates in a total of 11 violations of animal welfare.
One Harvard primates animal died of excessive anesthesia and the other died of a toy chain wrapped around his neck. Two other primates animals were severely dehydrated due to neglect and had to carry out euthanasia.
This is a trivial amount because it may impose a heavy penalty of $10,000 per violation.
Immediately after a thorough investigation by the US Department of Agriculture, stop the exploitation of animals!
Harvard University announced in April 2013 that it will close its primate research center to a large extent by 2015.
Previously, the director of the center resigned due to an animal welfare violation scandal.
This is not the first time Harvard Medical School has been reviewed, in violation of the Animal Welfare Act.
In 2010, a primate animal was left in a cage while running a disinfection cycle in a mechanical cage washing machine.
This incompetence was relieved by the fact that it was later discovered to have died, for reasons not recorded.
A staff member did not notice the dead animal before carrying out cage cleaning, which can only be described as serious negligence.
In just two days in December 2012, UC Davis managed to kill two young primates. A 6-month-
After a part of a stuffed animal used for "enrichment" purposes is wrapped around its neck, the old monkey baby dies. Another 19-month-
The old monkey also died when he was trapped in a squeeze device in a cage.
Just a year ago in December 17, 2011, about 50 rhesus monkeys escaped from the University of California-Davis primate Research Center, apparently breaking the hinges on the gates leading to their shells. (
Is there a sequel to Planet of the Apes here? )Thirty-
In order to retake them, six primates must be rushed to the animals with a calming agent.
A July 2012 USDA report showed that an employee at Emory University sent a macaque back to an incorrect compound, killing the monkey.
The report also shows that dead cockroaches are "too many to count", they are in the light cover above the monkey fence, there are too many rat feces on the floor of another building, and there is also in the kitchen
On the university's website, it says, "it is both a privilege and a heavy responsibility, and Emory is firmly committed to the ethical and compassionate treatment of the animals it cares.
"Obviously, caring for animals is a heavy responsibility for Emory;
They can't even keep the environment clean for primate's animals.
At the University of Anna, Louis (ULL)
The situation of Primates is a little better.
The university was fined $38,571 for a series of animal welfare violations.
In a February 2013 US Department of Agriculture report, the report said that three young monkeys were trapped in the chute of outdoor breeding groups and died.
On things that can only be described as shocking, the employee did not notice "a few days.
"The Primate animals in this university are obviously not designed to protect animals.
This also resulted in a chimpanzee recovering from anesthesia, with an arm and hand injury as it crossed the drain and was attacked by other chimpanzees.
Fortunately, for most NIH chimpanzees, they will no longer suffer from such gross negligence.
On June 2013, the National Institutes of Health announced that all but 50 of the 360 chimpanzees planned to retire.
In another US Department of Agriculture report on ULL on August 2013, it was revealed that a monkey's mother's arm was broken between the squeeze mechanism and the closed "concentrated" door.
The staff has been trying to measure the body temperature of her baby.
In the same report, the report said that another female macaque died after getting her hand stuck between the space at the bottom of the metal pipe and the other part of her shell.
The same report from the US Department of Agriculture said that five Capoose monkeys were trying to escape from seagulls on a large scale, and who could blame them?
They removed the lock from their enclosure door and escaped.
Apparently the monkey is smart enough to make a lock, perhaps a technician at the animal lab --not so much.
There are records of violations of the Animal Welfare Act at the University of Louis Anna.
In 2010, they were fined $18,000 for the following reasons: the use of darts in social groups to appease non-human primates, which caused extreme tension in the group.
IACUC failed to properly describe the animals to be used.
Records of methods and procedures for the calming of primates in "Rod and collar/chair studies" are incomplete.
3 female primates did not receive adequate medical care in a calm state, while their babies tried to wake them up strongly.
The African green monkey was not protected in bad weather, causing a monkey tail to freeze and then had to be amputated.
Failed to provide environmental improvements for non-human primates.
Oregon Health and Science University was fined $11,679 for violating the Animal Welfare Act.
In a May 8, 2012 report, nine macaques also fled for freedom.
The lab technician forgot to lock the door of the outdoor fence.
Like Lafayette, the paddock of the primate animal was not built to safely accommodate the animal and prevent the paddock from accidentally opening. (
I'm starting to think of the curly monkey Bessie who "broke out" here! )
Because the Animal Care and Use Committee of their institution (IACUC)". .
Failure to review and approve changes in animal care and use in ongoing experiments.
An employee took two unapproved compounds to two macaques, causing the animal to die.
"In 2009, three more macaques died from untrained animal care supervisors at Oregon Health and Science University.
When the staff did not properly calm and monitor the animals, one died and two died from dehydration.
The facility was cited for failing to provide enough water to each of the facility's primes.
Last but not least, at the University of Texas Biomedical Research Institute.
Two young monkeys died in three months.
They were all caught in the door cable between the indoor and outdoor enclosure.
The report of January 24, 2013, again citing staff negligence, states that "it is necessary to train personnel on how to maintain door and proper animal movement practices.
"Ensuring that animals are properly trained is not the job of animal care personnel in living anatomy laboratories;
This is the responsibility of the institutes.
In this shocking trend, it seems that the famous Institute is doing cutting corners in training employees and handling animals.
When I hear the response from these labs over and over again, animal welfare is a priority for them and I have to disagree.
Not only is animal welfare clearly irrelevant, but it is only when they are caught in red
This raises the question: how trustworthy are you?
If you can't even provide water for the animals you take care of, how can we trust the results of the experiment? Ex-
Director of National Institutes of Health
Elias zehuani said recently, "We are no longer studying human diseases.
We all drank Kool-
Including me, help on that issue.
Able to knock in or out any genes in mice-
The researchers have surpassed "we can't be sued"
Rely on animal data.
The problem is, it doesn't work, it's time for us to stop dancing around this issue. . .
In order to understand the biology of human diseases, we need to readjust and adapt to the new methods used by human beings.
"I can't say anything better myself.
For the sake of animals, for everyone desperately looking for a cure for the disease, let's stop drinking Kool-
Help and believe in the PR of the living anatomy lab.
Let 2014 in a real year, let the animals in the laboratories around the world change.
