Ditto Kathy: "The study, based on animal facility inspection reports by APHIS from January 2008 to July 2011, applied a score relative to violations, repeat violations and National Institutes of Health grant money." 3 years! 3 freaking years and nothing done! Hopefully, PCRM will have some action on this; I know they did with the University of Pennsylvania. But NIH is so culpalble, and we the tax-payers flip this bill. All of this needs to end. They just had several pronounced Scientists speaking against the use of primates at a NIH conference recently How scientifically outdated it is, yada, yada. I just don't understand why this doesn't STOP.

shame. We have to keep education people until nobody will work in this environment. People have to make the change. Rules and laws are never enough. People have to want to do the right thing.

Animals have brains but no understanding of knowledge, Humans have knowledge but no brains, if they (Humans) did have brains they would not do all the horrible things that they do!

For an institution of education, they are not teaching any compassion. Are these animals just "school supplies"?

This is disgusting It makes me ashamed to be a US citizen. If your not willing to test you medicine or products on humans bc there not safe then we shouldn't be willing to use our animals as worthless test subjects. The Lord did not intend us to treat and care for these animals this way. How ashamed he must be.
