Urge CU officials to end cruel primate alcohol studies

While IDA has been able to get 11 bonnet macaque monkeys used in the cruel research of Mark Laudenslager transferred from the University of Colorado (CU) to a Texas sanctuary, 37 others have been sent to Wake Forest University (WFU) in North Carolina for Laudenslager's alcohol study. Please "Take Action" to urge Dr. M. Roy Wilson, CU Health Sciences Chancellor, and the CU Board of Regents to immediately terminate Laudenslager's alcohol study. 

Also, please tell a friend about this issue and donate to IDA so that we can continue our important work for animals.

Subject:

Dear [ Decision Maker ],

The University of Colorado (CU) made the right decision in retiring 11 monkeys to a sanctuary. However, sending the remaining 37 monkeys to Wake Forest University (WFU) to be subjected to Mark Laudenslager's frivolous and cruel alcohol experiments was neither in the animals' nor CU's best interests.

(Edit Letter Below)

As you know, the monkeys who were transferred to WFU lived nearly their entire lives at CU in a substandard basement that did not even meet USDA requirements. Now it has been reported that conditions at Wake Forest are far worse than they were at CU. The Regents were warned of this in April 2006, but chose instead to believe the former University of Colorado at Denver Health Sciences Center (UCDHSC) Chancellor when he deceptively stated, "Going from CU to WFU would be like going from a Holiday Inn to a Four Seasons." I strongly urge you to immediately terminate Mark Laudenslager's alcohol study. His experiments are ludicrous and cannot be expected to be of any value to science. While they may bring some funding to CU, they will continue to be a blight on the University's reputation as long as they are allowed to continue.
