Stop Animal Exploitation NOW!

"Exposing the truth to wipe out animal experimentation"

Media Coverage

Animal rights group says UW researcher misleading the public
by Doug Cunningham

This media coverage was from the Wisconsin Radio Network.  This network supplies stories to approximately 60 radio news stations in Wisconsin.

 An animal rights groups accuses the director of UW's Primate Research Center of misleading the public in order to draw millions of dollars into the center. Michael Budkie heads up the Ohio-based Stop Animal Exploitation Now. He says the UW's Joseph Kemnitz claims a shortage of rhesus monkeys in order to get more funding for the primate research center. Budkie says there's no shortage and the public needs to see what's really going on at the research center. "We believe that if these facilities are going to get another dime of our money we have a right to see what's going on inside," Budkie said. Budkie says there are troubling questions about the research primates are subjected to and whether it's really necessary. "They have made it sound like, oh the research that goes on in these facilities is worthwhile, the animals are well taken care of. Essentially, everything is fine," Budkie said, "From every piece of information we've been able to come up with this is anything but the case. The animals in many of these laboratories are suffering tremendously from stress. There's been an ongoing problem at the primate research center there in Wisconsin with cannibalism among the primates."
