Another baboon has died at Texas Biomed

By Jennifer R. Lloyd,, Friday, July 18, 2014

SAN ANTONIO — The U.S. Department of Agriculture is investigating the Texas Biomedical Research Institute, an agency spokeswoman confirmed.

The institute researches a range of healthcare issues at its Northwest Side facility — from AIDS to hepatitis — and is home to a large captive population of baboons and other primates.

Michael Budkie, executive director of the Ohio-based group Stop Animal Exploitation NOW!, has filed a complaint with the USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service after unearthing a USDA inspection report from June that describes the death of a young male baboon and the injury of an adult female rhesus monkey.
