(US/tx) AR group calls for investigation of Alice research facility after monkey deaths
April 24, 2012
ALICE -- A watchdog group opposing laboratory research on animals is calling for an investigation into an Alice facility where three monkeys died two years ago.
Representatives from Stop Animal Exploitation Now uncovered records from the University of Washington that show two monkeys died from a form of tuberculosis in 2010 while another died of goat polio.
"We're insisting these deaths be looked at very seriously and very quickly," said Michael Budkie, executive director of the watchdog group.
