[Unlike most of the life stories listed to the left, this one was written by a student from the University of Washington who asked questions to her university about the monkey named on her Primate Freedom Tag. The clear similarity between this sad story and all the others is yet additional evidence that these stories represent the typical situation.]

In Memory of : Female, Baboon, #A92025

Born January 1, 1991
Died June 26, 2000

Baboon #A92025 was manufactured at the Buckshire Corporation which sold her to the University of Washington. During her short, lonely life she was subjected to various protocols including experiments that caused permanent biological changes in her.

She was used as a “dummy” for blood drawing in 1992. Her bones were permanently altered in the “Bone Marrow Engraftment…” experiments.

Her biology was permanently changed again in 1993 when human stem cells were introduced into her system. She was also used as a breeding machine in November of 1999, just seven months before she was killed.

In March of 1996 one researcher noted that she was suffering from nosebleeds, sneezing, coughing, and abnormal discharge. However, to push a new protocol into action, an alternate researcher noted a day later that Baboon #A92025 was healthy and the experiments were to be continued as planned.

She had blood drawn 26 times. She was moved 52 times. And, she spent approximately six years in a single cage with no interaction with others. She was euthanized on June 26, 2000 after 9 ½ years of enslavement and torture.

She spent only broken, shifting moments with other caged and tortured primates adding up to a total of approximately 3.3 years of exposure to her own species. The rest of the time she spent alone, including a two-month stint being tethered.

Tethering is a technique that is used to infuse (inject) and sample (suck out) fluids in an unrestrained animal over an extended period of time. It truly turns them into a living laboratory. Typically, a monkey will undergo surgery that implants tubes (cannula or catheters) into the organ or cavity of interest. The tubes may be tunneled under the skin and exit through the animal's back into a protected flexible metal hose. The animal is then fitted with a jacket to keep him or her from being able to touch the exit site. The tubes then attach to a port in the cage, so that the animal might appear to be on a leash or a tether. Tethered animals sometimes develop sores under their jackets from chaffing. In nearly every case, tethered animals are
singly housed, which may be the worse thing that can be done to these highly social animals.

In her life, A92025:

Ø Was taken from her mother and had her infant taken from her;

Ø Was moved 52 times;

Ø Had blood drawn 26 times;

Ø Spent over six years alone in a cage; and was killed

The people who used her are:

Ø Dr. Robert G. Andrews

Ø Dr. John Weyhrich

Ø Dr. Laurence Shields

Ø Dr. David Anderson
