Animal rights group wants inquiry at University of Washington

Stop Animal Exploitation Now said Thursday it would ask the federal government to investigate the University of Washington's primate research lab.

The organization said it obtained post-mortem records for primates in the lab that show that some of the animals were "highly stressed" and "seriously" ill before death.

Michael Budkie, investigator with the group, said at a news conference in downtown Seattle that he would ask the U.S. Department of Agriculture to look into the research conducted there. His appearance in Seattle was part of a national tour for National Primate Liberation Week.

In response to the complaint, a UW spokeswoman said in a statement, "The National Primate Research Center at the UW is a strictly regulated research facility, and our primary objective is to accomplish outstanding biomedical research in a safe environment that meets the physiologic and psychological needs of our animals."
