Outrage over planned monkey experiments

An uproar over the University of Wisconsin-Madison's plan to perform maternal deprivation experiments on baby monkeys.  More than 300,000 people have signed a petition demanding the tax-payer funded experiment be stopped.

Monkey experimentation is highly controversial.  These are highly intelligent, emotional creatures.  Reports claim the plan is to take 40 newborn rhesus monkeys, separate half of them from their mothers, then submit all of the monkeys to anxiety-inducing tests.  Then, they’re going to kill them all and study their brains with new imagining equipment in the hopes of gaining insight into anxiety and depression.

Investigators say Kingery, a nurse, was last seen over a week ago when she left her house after 10 AM to go for a walk, leaving behind her cell phone and her purse. Kingery’s husband says he came home just over two hours later and found the dog chained up outside and a handwritten note on the table, “Gone for a walk. Be back soon. Love you". Kingery’s family says that out of character for her.
