University of Washington's primate center under fire

Animal research = bad.
Animal research with poor oversight = badder.
"The fact that the UW characterizes this incident — 41 surgeries on 14 monkeys — as a clerical error seems unduly dismissive to me," said Debra Durham [of] People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. "Ethically speaking, we can't afford to lose sight of the animals. For them, the difference between two surgeries and six or 10 is much more than paperwork."
