    Default New Iberia Monkey Farm - Asset or Liability

    The trend of issues and problems for this primate research facility has not been good- at least the news trend for the university.

    The article tone and "throw the book" comment are either ignorant of or purposely ignore the "no fault found" in specific previous allegations.

    I don't know enough to evaluate this. Would I retreat because some left-wing nut cases were trumping up BS just because they hate using monkeys for research? No. Would I reconsider if I knew we were operating the facility on a cheap budget that leads to derelict employees and bad conditions for the primates when the corporate benefactors of this research could fund better care? Yes. Where does this issue fall?

    Never be the last woman looking for a lifeboat on the Titanic. IMO research on primates is a declining research. Not saying we should quit, only not be the last ones to take all the heat. TooLame had some sick chimps escape a few weeks back on the North Shore.

    I don't agree with using monkeys for testing, we have plenty of perfectly good animals we could test on imprisoned all over the country. What did the monkeys do?

    The misfortune of having the keys 🔑 to cures. The curse of being able to reproduce faster than humans.

    But do they reproduce at a higher rate than the country's crime?

    Spoke to someone that recently toured the facility and he said it was outstanding. I don't see it as a liability.

    If water boarding a mass murderer bothers the average American _____... we'll never get the opportunity to inject Scott Peterson with Ebola and study him... unfortunately.

    I don't always agree with CajunMonkee but I don't see him as a liability either. And I sure don't think we should be testing Ebola on him. Poor guy has enough to deal with his eye problems.

    Monkee is a good guy, he's a positive role model. Dude makes the games, watches with his heart.

    Know people that work at the primate center. Those primates get way better treatment than Americans in nursing homes and hospitals. Bet if it was an Refineryville unit, wouldn't be any noise.

    It doesn't work that well, but we get really good weed there.

    And the Ebola vaccine....you wouldn't believe the colors.

    That is funny but true! At the very least those on Death Row should take the place of the innocent monkeys. Also those lifer's could sign up for the research and "maybe" get a few perks here and there!
