Free The CU 34 sign now

The Committee for Research Accountability (CRA), a project of In Defense of Animals (www.idausa.org), is calling upon the University of Colorado (CU) to release 34 monkeys being held in its Health Sciences facility. CU has stated it would cost $10,000 to $15,000 per animal for this release. Both CRA and IDA urge the University to forego the ransom and set these intelligent, feeling animals free after years of service to CU researchers.

The University of Colorado Health Sciences Center has used macaque monkeys in maternal separation experiments to analyze the effects of separating infants from their mothers. One can only imagine the terror and confusion of the mother when her baby is torn from her, even for a short time. After being taken from their mothers, the babies can experience severe depression, anxiety, loneliness and fear, and may suffer lifelong psychological consequences.

These experiments are widely known and condemned by many because they are considered to be archaic and unnecessary and of questionable applicability to human health. After many years of public scrutiny, CU's project ended recently.

Of the CU34, 31 have been at the facility since birth, the oldest being nearly 18 years old. Another monkey, a 36 year-old who was "wild caught," is slated as a potential subject for a terminal experiment.

CRA has negotiated with a sanctuary that has agreed to accept the monkeys so that they may live out their lives in peace. Please join us in demanding their release.
