    It must have gone through almost all of the animal research labs... either that, or the HSUS supporters were going over to read it. For two days, it octupled our traffic on ultoday.com. _
    And i know our administration had a copy of it also. Very well done.

    Dr Fun, first of all, that is a very well written piece.

    Secondly, I am in no way surprised that ABC did this. They, along with all of the other major media outlets, have been doing this sort of thing for decades. It is a coordinated attack to push forward a political agenda.

    News is not news. It is a product that is created, shaped, and sold.


  3. Default Inspectors set deadline to come into compliance


      New Iberia - Animal mistreatment alleged by the Humane Society was not cited by federal inspectors during their visit to the New Iberia Research Center last month, according to a USDA report.

    U.S. Department of Agriculture inspectors, however, found six areas of non-compliance with the Animal Welfare Act and set deadlines for corrective action.

    USDA Secretary Thomas Vilsack promised the investigation in March after the release of video shot by a Humane Society investigator, who worked undercover at the center for nine months in 2008.

  4. Default UL responds to report on primate facility


      U.S. agriculture officials visited center for inspection in March

    The director of UL's New Iberia Research Center said Tuesday that several steps are being taken to address six concerns raised by U.S. Department of Agriculture inspectors.

    Those concerns, outlined in a report issued on March 27, focus on how certain actions are documented and reviewed and how some primates are housed, sedated and transported.

    If you are not happy where you work, why not change jobs? Humans can do that and I'm sure some other primates wish they could as well. _
    You have a smart dog! He knows if he does it once you will bother him to do it again, and again, etc. Then he figures you will be sending him out in the rain to fetch the newspaper!!

    From where I sit, I believe he's gotcha. But a final test is if he goes and sits by the door and you rise up out of your comfy chair to let him out, then go through the out of the chair routine when he "arfs" to be let in you know where you fit in the pecking order.

I spoke to his ranch manager about such a high number to harvest and he informed me that the alternative was much worse and less humaine. Before they we enrolled in the program they would lose 200-300 deer per year to blue tongue or anthrax.

    Hunting is the humane alternative. _

    If the HSUS don't like us testing possibly life saving things on chimps, why don't they volunteer to be the test subjects?

    Or let the baddest one in their club go three, three minute rounds with one of the chimps.

    This appears to be an open and shut case of government fraud under the federal False Claims Act,” said Jonathan Lovvorn, vice president and chief counsel for animal protection litigation at The HSUS. “The Attorney General should investigate this matter, terminate illegal breeding at NIRC, and take legal action to recover any taxpayer monies squandered by this facility.”

    I hope no one in Mr. Lovvorn's family ever has a death sentence from cancer or any other terminal disease. I'd love to be the one to tell him that we almost had a cure for the disease that inflicts his loved one, but because of his actions, the NIRC had to shut down and the chance at saving his loved one's life with a new medicine went down the tube with his hippy tree hugging kumbaya save the animals over human life attitude.

    GEAUX UL!

    That's a clever idea.

    I actually don't object to their concerns, but to their methods. They aren't working to advance animal welfare, where they could contribute a great deal. They are working to shut down the research, regardless of any other concerns, and without looking at what they could accomplish in the short run.

    Yeah, they're wackos. But after you've been around awhile, you realize that everyone's a wacko some of the time.

    Even you & me...

    Default U.S. Suspends Use of Chimps in New Research It Finances

    Dr. Thomas Rowell, director of the New Iberia Research Center in New Iberia, La., which houses 471 chimpanzees, more than any other center in the country, also said he was "quite pleased" with the report. He said, "It just confirms what we've been saying all along in regard to the chimpanzee model for advancing public health research."

    UL 1984, 1999 . . . . University of Louisiana Making Name Strides

    Last night I was watching the Science Channel series Though the Wormhole. In this particular show the concept was about God, and man. Is God an invention of man, or is man from God? The important thing to UL is that our cognitive research center was featured in one of the experiments.

    In this particular study, Dr. Povinelli was featured as a researcher at the University of Louisiana. No doubt there will come a time when ULM will see it in their own interest to crate space for themselves. We already see that in their preferred use of ULM in most thing.

    In the meantime UL and the University of Louisiana continues to swath their way though the name jungle. Quit sweating the little things. We want this more than others do not want us to have it. The war is won, and one day there will be no pockets of dissent.
