As we watch the tide turn, UF’s own student newpaper reports on the culture of incompetence and animal abuse inside the university.

When it comes to the treatment of UF laboratory animals, a local organization isn’t monkeying around.
Karen Kline, senior laboratory investigator for animal-rights group Eleventh Hour for Animals, filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Agriculture last month, detailing a “culture of negligence” toward animals used in UF research.
The lucrative taxpayer-funded animal torture industry inside the University of Florida must remain hidden from public view in order to continue. Their crimes cannot stand the light of day. But the iron hand of repression with which they have attempted to silence activists, publishing prevarications in the media, infringing on constitutional rights, and wrapping themselves inside a cocoon of police state corruption has not gone unnoticed.

THE HORRORS OF ANIMAL EXPERIMENTATION IN RESEARCH LABORATORIES
I desperately need your help. Animals are being tortured and killed in laboratories throughout the United States. For example, egregious, heinous violations of the natural rights of monkeys are occurring at the University of Florida. See the Web site at http://universityofflorida.us . I have posted some appalling photographs on the Web page at http://faculty.UNG.edu/bfriedman/bfried/AnimalLab/index.html. Before you click on that link, be aware that these photographs are horrifying to look at–so traumatic that I can’t post them on this page. If they are horrifying to look at, imagine what it is like to experience such terror. Please don’t let this continue. There is no civilized human being who cannot recognize this incomprehensible savagery as being immoral. Write to me at bfriedman@UNG.edu.
