2008 Column E ---number of animals
in pain at Emory and Yerkes Primate Center
A large protest, an embarassing accident or some other newsworthy
incident will result in public relations hacks being trotted out
to explain away and lie to the public about what's happening behind
the closed doors of every animal laboratory in the United States.
It's as predictable as the sun rising and setting each day.
Time after time, Emory University and Yerkes Primate Center has

research, surgery or tests were conducted involving accompanying
pain or distress to the animals and for which the use of appropriate
anesthetic, analgesic, or tranqualizing drugs would have adversely
affected the procedure, results or interpretation of the teaching,
research, experiments, surgery or tests. (An explanation of the
procedures producing pain or distress in these animals and the reasons
such drugs were not used must be attached to this report.)
Only the most uninformed continue to believe the Animal Welfare
Act protects animals and that animal labs will produce the needed
cures and treatments we all want for our children, parents and ourselves.
