Since this campaign re-emerged one week ago, together, we have already scored our first victory. And every activist who has stood with us for the animals, participated in cyber actions, and is helping us get our efforts off the ground is to be congratulated!
Eleventh Hour filed a federal complaint citing systemic incompetence among the “medical researchers” abusing primates inside the University of Florida days ago on December 24. On the heels of that indictment from activists, we filed a third lawsuit in the courts against the University of Florida for suppressing public records documenting the extent of their taxpayer-funded atrocities.

EASY EMAIL ACTION- FREE THE UF MONKEYS* Just copy/paste a letter and email addresses! While the rest of the world continues to ban many or all forms of animal testing, the University of Florida in Gainesville continues to torture the innocent. The faculty, alumni and supporters of UF must be educated- many have no idea what horrors their money is funding. Activists have fought vivisection at this institute for too long, please take just a minute to lend your voice and help free the UF monkeys!

For Immediate Release
At 8 am this morning, Eleventh Hour for Animals filed a federal complaint with the USDA citing four counts of violations of the Animal Welfare Act and alleging systemic incompetence and neglect of animals being housed inside the University of Florida. Veterinarians documented a monkey named Louis with a broken hip on July 9, 2009. Rather than address the injury or treat his pain, Louis was left to languish in agony and deteriorate as lab techs, vets, and principle investigator Stephen Roberts spent an entire year testing him for parasites. When the parasite treatments failed to resolve the issue of his broken bones, Louis was incinerated on July 9, 2010. His veterinary records chillingly note that Louis “was unable to be used.”
