Life in the Lab: the Hidden Truth about Animal Experimentation

Michael Budkie of SAEN speaks in Rochester NY:
7:00 pm Power Point Presentation, followed by Q&A
Open to the Public
Brighton Town Hall AUDITORIUM, 2300 Elmwood Ave, Rochester NY 14618 (wheelchair accessible elevator at rear entrance)

Michael Budkie is Executive Director of SAEN: Stop Animal Exploitation NOW! Currently on a book tour across the USA, Budkie is selling his new book, "Tear At the Jacket" ($15). This explosive expose' blows lab doors wide open by revealing the horrors of daily lives of primates in laboratories across the USA.

SAEN was founded in 1996, to force an end to the abuse of animals in laboratories. Rats and mice are believed to comprise over 90% of animals used in experimentation, yet they are excluded from coverage by the Animal Welfare Act. Therefore the majority of animals used at research facilities are not counted. SAEN investigations reveal abuses within laboratories nationwide. Their first major event was a news conference that revealed the suffering endured by dogs, rabbits, and primates in 9 (nine) laboratories across the USA. In 2002, SAEN filed a milestone complaint with the USDA revealing that Harvard and Yale had lied to the USDA about the number of primates experimented on in university laboratories. SAEN ended abusive experiments on primates in San Diego, CA. SAEN launched a campaign against Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (currently lists no usage of primates) for using primates in endotracheal intubation, bringing about congressional hearings into the use of animals by the military. In Defense of Animals (IDA) and SAEN brought about two federal hearings on animal experimentation by the U.S. military.
