Devendra Singh,com. four victims who were on admission in hospitals reportedly died on Monday. This was disclosed by the Commandant of the Armed Forces Command and Staff College (AFCSC), 19, 15, including Chhetri and Jeje. as they sought statistics about the NDA government’s performance and claiming that the Minister was avoiding a reply. ONPRC aside,C. infiltrated ONPRC Hired as an animal care technician she shot videos of monkeys in small barren cages In an ensuing campaign PETA claimed the animals ate food mixed with feces pulled their hair out as a result of stress and lived in constant fear of lab workers The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) investigated but found no animal welfare violations “Yet the video lives on” says Diana Gordon “and it still rears its ugly head” (A PETA spokesperson notes that USDA has cited ONPRC for several violations of the Animal Welfare Act since then) But ONPRC did not retreat Instead it scheduled more tours and encouraged its scientists to engage the public “There was a universal realization that we needed to do more to help people understand what we were doing” Gordon says Today she leads the high school students along a dirt path that skirts several enclosures made of chain-link fence and cinder blocks Inside each a couple of dozen rhesus macaques scale the fencing chase one another on a spinning metal wheel and swing from a tire tied to a rope Several new mothers clutch babies to their chests; some female students coo at them More than 3000 macaques live in enclosures like those or in larger open-air arenas Another 1500 which researchers are actively studying are housed in a building off-limits to the tour Gordon says those animals may be susceptible to human diseases and unlike the others aren’t used to seeing large groups of people and would be stressed by visitors If we keep being secretive about animal research our laws are going to change too Funding will dry up and our work will get a lot more difficult Ken Gordon Northwest Association for Biomedical Research She tries to tackle head-on any misconceptions the students may have “If you see these animals smacking each other they’re just establishing dominance Some are losing their hair some have red bottoms—this is normal during mating season And here’s what monkey chow looks like” she says passing around a plastic baggie filled with brown pellets “Yes it looks a bit like poop but it isn’t” ONPRC’s approach echoes one many UK research facilities have taken to heart After years of animal rights extremism such as physical assaults and setting fire to buildings the London-based Understanding Animal Research (UAR) launched the Concordat on Openness on Animal Research in the UK in 2014 Most UK institutions have now signed the agreement pledging to be more transparent about how and why they use animals The University of Oxford posts 360° photos of its animal holding and testing facilities for example and the University of Cambridge takes web visitors inside its rodent research showing videos of rats that have had brain surgery to give them symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder “It’s never as bad as people think it will be in their imagination” says Wendy Jarrett UAR’s CEO “And the message is more powerful if it comes from the institutions themselves rather than from groups like ours” The strategy appears to have had an impact UK public support for animal research has ticked up in the past few years according to polls and Jarrett says the number of negative news stories about animal experimentation has dropped Inspired nearly 100 animal facilities in Spain signed a similar agreement and last week 16 institutions in Portugal did the same In February about 100 US scientists veterinarians and university administrators gathered in San Francisco California to call for more transparency from the country’s animal labs One upshot: a proposed US Animal Research Openness Agreement which if formalized would bind signatories to be more candid about the animal research they do much like the UK concordat “You could go through the halls of our university and not find any information about where our medical advances came from” says Larry Carbone director of the animal care and use program at the University of California San Francisco He says his university will try to put more of its animal research online “It should be the first thing a kid doing a term paper on animal testing encounters” High school students on a tour view monkeys in the largest habitats at the Oregon National Primate Research Center in Beaverton ROGER WERTH Likewise Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore Maryland plans to step up its game “Our animal use page was a 50-word paragraph” says Audrey Huang the university’s director of media relations She’s pushing the school to talk more about its animal work in press releases and Hopkins has begun to make videos about the lab animals it adopts out—a program Huang says was in place long before the Rescue + Freedom Project came on the scene In one video A Home for Louie a 1-year-old hound that had been implanted with a lung device to study asthma plays fetch and cuddles with his new owner on the couch The University of Wisconsin (UW) in Madison is taking things further Press releases about animal research at other universities usually skate over sensitive information but UW’s describe injecting monkeys with Ebola virus and performing heart surgery on pigs for example and its web pages detail its animal research program UW also posts its USDA inspection reports online even after the agency began scrubbing them from its own website in a controversial move last year Those reports sometimes criticize university practices But disclosing them not only is honest says UW Director of Research Communications Terry Devitt but can also preempt animal rights groups like the Milford Ohio–based Stop Animal Exploitation Now (SAEN) Such groups have staffers dedicated to unearthing the USDA reports and blasting them out to journalists in campaigns that have triggered huge fines and even lab closures “When things go wrong fess up correct it and tell the world about it” Ken Gordon says “If it has to be dug up it makes it look like you were trying to hide something” He also has floated the idea of livestreaming video from animal facilities Others have suggested filming inspections and conducting live video chats during animal procedures Gordon calls such efforts “radical transparency” and hopes they’ll get millennials whom he says value brutal honesty on board But whether scientists themselves will embrace transparency remains to be seen Transparent or opaque In the early 2000s animal rights groups got wind of a lab at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson that used surgery on live dogs to teach medical students Activist campaigns forced the school to switch to pigs but it was soon assailed again “The dean was getting thousands of calls and emails” says Thomas Lohmeier a cardiovascular researcher at the center who uses dogs to develop cardiac implants for people “So we shut down the pig lab too The university just didn’t want to deal with it anymore” Lohmeier kept his own research under the radar for 30 years for fear of being targeted “I was concerned about myself and my family” he says “I was worried they’d shut my research down too” He thinks transparency won’t stop animal rights activists let alone bring the public back “You can explain why your research is important and this and that but the animal rights folks won’t care” One animal rights activist SAEN Co-Founder Michael Budkie says Lohmeier is right “More transparency won’t stop us from doing what we’re doing You can’t put a good face on animals being seriously injured or killed” The White Coat Waste Project uses images of dogs in cages on their billboards (top) whereas pro-research groups like Americans for Medical Progress shoot images of scientists bonding with animals (bottom) for use in their ads (TOP TO BOTTOM) WHITE COAT WASTE PROJECT; BAYLOR COLLEGE OF MEDICINE The White Coat Waste Project’s Goodman adds that outreach efforts like ONPRC’s are just a whitewash “ONPRC’s tour skips the research monkeys” he says “It’s essentially a day at the zoo” He says the research community has in fact been resisting transparency He points to a US Government Accountability Office analysis released last month showing that a variety of US research organizations don’t want federal agencies to release more data on animal experimentation “They’re fighting transparency at every turn” Even if US institutions do become more open that doesn’t guarantee it will sway the public UK polls showing increased support for animal research as the openness initiative took hold don’t prove the two are related And Jarrett admits that the United Kingdom may not be a perfect model for the United States “When activists got bad here our government criminalized extremist activity with up to 15 years in prison” she says Animal rights activity dropped off precipitously after that she says which made speaking up easier “In the US.
