Alamogordo Primate Facility
Chuck Chimpanzee's records were obtained thru
a FOIA request to the Department of Health and Human Services. Chuck
was identified by id#2065 and CA0222. His birthday was 07/08/1973
and his date of death is 6/10/2002.
We received little information about Chuck but
will continue to investigate his death. According to documents from
APF, "Cardiac disease; valvuilits and dilated cardiomyopathy."
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."
