SAEN Blows Whistle on Another Ohio-Based Lab; Cites USDA Reports Linking Horrific Deaths to Battelle

COLUMBUS, OH – Horrific animals’ deaths are being linked by government reports to Columbus-based worldwide conglomerate Battelle Memorial Research Institute, according to a Cincinnati-based watchdog nonprofit at a news conference here Monday.

According to the national research watchdog organization Stop Animal Exploitation Now (SAEN), recent government investigative documents reveal that Battelle has broken federal laws in its laboratories, including drowning one research subject and cooking another one alive.

SAEN, based in Ohio, said it will make available copies of the federal reports about Battelle and its official complaint against Battelle, calling for major fines and other penalties.

Battelle has more than 100 offices facilities around the world involved in scientific and commercial research with laboratories focusing on chemical, biological and material science. Battelle works with universities and government research centers.

Please contact the Director of the USDA’s Eastern Regional Office to insist that she take immediate action against the Battelle Memorial Institute for negligence that drown one guinea pig and cooked another to death. The USDA MUST issue a fine!

SAMPLE LETTER

Dear Dr. Goldentyer,

I have just learned of horrific animal deaths cited by the USDA regarding the lack of care, neglect, and the facilitation of suffering as perpetrated by the Battelle Memorial Research Institute in Ohio. I am respectfully requesting that immediate action be taken against this vivisector. Vivisection is fundamentally cruel and unethical, and the existence of non-lethal alternatives makes it not only inhumane but also archaic.

We who recognize the deceptive nature of such promotion understand the reality: those who actually care for animals do not imprison them and expose them to disease and experimentation; those who actually concern themselves with animals would never subject them to pain, suffering, and agony and the denial of companionship and comfort. Two of these victims died via drowning and being cooked to death. Animals, such as human animals, are sentient beings capable of love, pain, and suffering. Any deviation from this most basic tenet is disingenuous rhetoric, as spun by those who exploit them.

Please use your resources immediately to, at the very least, charge them accordingly with fines, and ideally, close down the labs permanently.

Thank you for taking the time to consider this urgent appeal.
