Lafayette, La. – Please see the next assertion from PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo concerning the official warning posted by the U.S. Division of Agriculture (USDA) towards the College of Louisiana–Lafayette’s New Iberia Analysis Middle for its violations of federal animal welfare laws:

This warning gained’t undo the trauma endured by monkeys, nevertheless it exhibits that the College of Louisiana–Lafayette shouldn’t be trusted with even yet another penny in taxpayer funding for experiments on animals—and PETA has filed a criticism with the Nationwide Institutes of Well being, calling on the company to show off the cash spigot to UL-Lafayette. The college’s obscene neglect resulted within the sluggish and painful dehydration deaths of 5 toddler rhesus macaques. The deaths—which left 5 moms grieving—occurred over two days.

This deadly violation was so severe that USDA inspectors referred it to its Investigative and Enforcement Providers (IES) arm, which issued the uncommon warning. Final yr, IES issued solely 58 official warnings—though the USDA’s inspection arm filed 1000’s of inspection experiences documenting violations.

UL-Lafayette ought to redirect its assets towards trendy, non-animal analysis methodology that may really assist people, and we urge officers there to undertake PETA’s Analysis Modernization Deal. It will profit animals—who’re sentient and should stay free from struggling inflicted by people—and promote public well being and security, since monkeys can carry pathogens that pose a danger to people.
