This record for B.G. Chimpanzee, #5297, was obtained
thru a FOIA request to the Department of Health and Human Services.
The life of B.G. Chimpanzee is but a footnote
in records obtained from DHHS. As so many more, PFP will attempt
to find out more about the life and death of B.G. B.G's birthday
was 12/13/1986 and he died June 23, 2001 due to 'severe diffuse

Documents about APF chimpanzees tell us:
"3. Most of the chimpanzees have either been
infected with one or more chronic viruses, and even if they were
negative controls the chimpanzees have been subjected in the past
to many invasive procedures such as punch biopsies of the liver
and anesthetic events. These procedures are thought to contribute
to long-term prolems in some animals with liver and renal failure,
and various blood abnormalities."
Comments like these tell us the extraordinarly
sloppy job these facilites do and the government regulating agencies
who get rich 'regulating' them. As has been determined long ago,
animal experiments are for the money, not for human health.
