MSU Under Attack for Giving Monkey a Boo-Boo, Treating Guinea Pigs Like Guinea Pigs

Three guinea pigs died while in the care of MSU after they were literally used as guinea pigs in a medical experiment. Additionally, a lab monkey was attacked by another monkey. These are the two complaints brought against Montana State University by Stop Animal Exploitation Now (SAEN) with the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

SAEN’s complaint alleges that one monkey was found with a slight cut on its forearm and blood around its mouth, apparently from a scrap the primate got into with another monkey when their cages were inadvertedly conjoined. The monkey was patched up with a few stitches for the non-life threatening injury and was given anti-biotics.

Additionally, SAEN issued another formal complaint against MSU that three guinea pigs died after being given a respiratory irritant, ostensibly from researching COVID-19 and possible cures (according to statements made in social media by MSU research assistants). The guinea pigs had been received and used by MSU for research purposes. Reportedly, when it became clear the guinea pigs were suffering a veterinarian euthanized the others for humanitarian purposes.

SAEN knew of the incidents because they had been voluntarily reported by researchers to the university. MSU maintains an “Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee” that provides humanitarian oversight to animals used in experimentation, which is reviewing the incidents.

The animal rights activists want MSU to pay a fine of $40,000 dollars for harming the animals, which amounts to $10k fine per animal. Meanwhile, a laboratory in Hamilton, Montana, was importing dead babies to experiment upon (SAEN has not filed a complaint in that matter).

The Executive Director of SAEN wrote in his complaint, “Since Montana State University negligence has now caused serious injury to one animal and killed three, I must insist that you take the most severe action allowable under the Animal Welfare Act and immediately launch a full investigation and at the conclusion of the investigation issue the maximum fine allowable against Montana State University — $10,000 per infraction, per animal.”
