First, the University of Massachusetts Amherst slammed the door on talks with PETA to modernize its antiquated, animal-exploiting experimentation program. Now, as a recent Gazette article shows, it’s playing fast and loose with the truth. In the article (“PETA renews campaign against monkey research at UMass,” April 29), university spokesman Edward Blaguszewski claims UMass is fully in compliance with federal animal welfare standards.

He fails to mention the marmoset in UMass’s “care” who was so severely burned on a heating pad while recovering from a vasectomy that he died. Or the one who was carelessly allowed to escape and suffered a tail injury upon recapture. Or the one who was observed to be shaky and lethargic but wasn’t given veterinary attention.

UMass was cited by the USDA for these violations of the Animal Welfare Act. It was not, in fact, in compliance with federal law. The university must end its public relations charade and rejoin PETA at the negotiating table before more lives are lost.
