Alamogordo Primate Facility
December 9, 1982 would have been a joyous day
for the parents of Peg Chimpanzee had Peg not been born in a research
facility. Peg would die a young adult at 20 years of age on March
8, 2002 of 'renal failure, heart failure. Anuria, cardiomyopathy.
Unresponsive to emergency care."
PFP is attempting to find out more about Peg and
others at Alamogorgo and formerly of the Coulston Foundation. Addition
information will be posted about each primate as it is received.
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.
