Dr. Gibbens,

Please LEVY a MAXIMUM FINE against Northern Biomedical Research for their blatant disregard of the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) when their negligence allowed a monkey to die unnecessarily. Their behavior must NOT be tolerated and MUST be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

Animal Group Files Complaint Against Western Michigan Lab

From, September 27, 2022

An Animal Rights group has filed a Federal Complaint against a Western Michigan research facility that tests on animals. Stop Animal Exploitation NOW! says Northern Biomedical Research Inc. violated the Animal Welfare Act in connection to the death of a monkey.

According to an inspection report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, the primate was burned during an MRI procedure and later had to be euthanized. A review found that a lack of training of the MRi technician was the cause of the injury.
