SAEN again points to torture at UW Primate Center

A new report claims the UW research lab is among the top nationally-known labs to torture animals. The advocacy group SAEN -- Stop Animal Exploitation Now -- says the University of Wisconsin National Primate Research Center is among the "Top 20" worst US research facilities for violations of federal law, which can often invalidate the research itself.

SAEN research director Michael Budkie says research subjects are routinely starved, strangled and maimed through laboratory negligence. Budkie says even when fines were issued, they were so small that they were meaningless to the labs, which they attributed to just a part of doing business. The watchdog group wants the USDA to be able to better enforce the law.

Budkie says many labs are allowed to continually break federal law with impunity because USDA is not doing its job. Budkie is calling for another audit of the labs.
