WEEAC World Events Ending Animal Cruelty started this petition to UW System President Kevin P. Reilly and

It is outrageous that such an institution would be given the go ahead to undertake an experiment done decades ago. That entails the following:

Infant monkeys are immediately removed from their mothers after birth and kept in total isolation. They will be given "surrogate" materials known to provoke heightened anxieties. For 42 days, the confused infants will be subjected to relentless fear and panic-inducing tests while totally isolated. These tests include being intentionally terrified by human researchers, being left alone with a live King snake, and being left alone in a strange room with a strange monkey. They will then be killed and dissected.

Please help us Put a stop to this laboratory experiment by contacting the University of Wisconsin system president. The person whom this petition is directed to.

Thank you!
