Just days after the USDA posted the inspection report documenting these violations, it mysteriously was taken offline. NEAVS is working to get to the bottom of this unacceptable, shady behavior.
It is wildly unacceptable that laboratories are allowed to continue to confine and experiment on hundreds of animals after repeated instances of absolute negligence. Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute has a long, documented history of violating federal animal welfare laws. And still, they are allowed to perform painful experiments, often without any pain relief, on hundreds of non-human primates, dogs, and rabbits, as well as untold numbers of mice and rats who are not even counted. Receiving these violation reports from the USDA is just business-as-usual at this point. We must demand better for animals in laboratories.
Tell the USDA to enforce the law and fine Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute for negligently killing these two monkeys.
