Tell UW-Madison: Stop The Monkey Madness!

(ANIMAL TESTING/ANIMAL CRUELTY) In response to backlash from various animal rights groups, the University Of Wisconsin-Madison has announced they will not be moving forward with one of the most controversial aspects of their upcoming study on human anxiety and depression. Researchers are expected to begin deadly experiments on baby monkeys in the coming months, but they are removing the maternal deprivation element from their protocol. Maternal deprivation involves the forceful removal of newborn monkeys from their mothers, which intentionally inflicts heightened levels of anxiety, hence traumatizing the newborns significantly. While the university's decision is a step in the right direction, the modified experiments will still cause unnecessary suffering to animals and will not benefit human patients. Our efforts are making a difference, but we need to keep up the pressure. Read on to learn more about the details of the maternal deprivation study and see how you can take action at the link below. -- Global Animal
