On 04/03/1993 R82023 delivered a son, R93014, at the WNPRC. His father is not identified in documents received. R93014 was tattooed on the ear and received a physical exam on 04/06/1993.

Daily Care Logs reveal the following:

R93014 was assigned to the following projects:

Project#19760408 Wild breeding troop
Project#00300650 Unassigned animal utilizations
Project#00300901 Clinical blood or surgery
Project#19940102 Immunobiology of SIV and HIV
Project#19951203 Formation of DNA profile databases for multiple non-human primate species
Project#19811001 Sweet taste in primate
Project#19971001 Novel therapeutic approaches for AIDS utilizing an SIV model
Project#19960702 DNA profiling of primates used in biomedical research

R93014 had the following procedures performed at WNPRC:

  • received Ketamine hcl vetalar 30 times
  • tested for TB 14 times
  • received enrofloxacin 7 times
  • blood drawn 15 times
  • given experimental drug, nos #c-50100
  • one tongue biopsy
  • atropine sulfate 5 times
  • Benzathine penicillin 3 times
  • received procaine 3 times
  • received longicil 3 times
  • received medetomidine (domitor)
  • received atipamezole
  • given aspirin 3 times
  1. No explanation was cited for the overgrooming of his calves. Was this stress related?
  2. No explanation cited for face and lip sutures, skin and muscles of right shoulder, skin of left side of left foot injuries.
  3. No explanation why veterinarian did not observe R93014 rather than relying on opinion of caretaker concerning the progress of these injuries
  4. No explanation why a finger on his right hand was cut.
  5. No explanation how any of these instances occurred and if they were reported to the USDA.

On 05/30/2000, R93014 departed WNPRC and was shipped to Tulane Primate Center in Covington, Louisiana. Tulane, a tax supported facility, refuses to answer any questions concerning primates they hold. It is not suprising since they are obviously ashamed of the activities that occur in their lab.

No other information is will be available about R93014.

We wish to thank Ann Emerson for her continued efforts on behalf of her primate friends located at Wisconsin National Primate Research Center. Without Ann's support, information about R93014 would not be available. She is a true friend to primates.
