Alamogordo Primate Facility
Kist Chimpanzee, #6881/CB0477, born May 20, 1977,
died March 7, 2002. Records state Kist's cause of death, "Euthanized
due to insufficient blood supply from thrombi in right femoral artery,
distal aorta (calcified), left axillary artery and cardiac arteries.
PFP is attempting to find out more about Kist
and others at Alamogorgo and formerly of the Coulston Foundation.
Addition information will be posted about each primate as it is
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.
