Alamogordo Primate Facility
Little is known or recorded about Kelly Chimpanzee,
#6596/CA0115 except the birthdate of 01/07/1985 and died Feb. 01/2002
of heart failure. Kelly had a 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."
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.
This information is from documents received thru
a FOIA request from DHHS.
Remember, your tax dollars continue this. Complain
to your elected officials.
