Harvard's animal cruelty must stop

When I think of Harvard I immediately think of a prestigious University, I remember Gilmore Girls and Legally Blonde with a smile.  I definitely don't think of animals being harmed in laboratories but it has emerged that Harvard Medical School has a history of neglecting, causing pain and even killing animals in its laboratories.

In October 2011, a marmoset escaped from his cage, he was subsequently captured and died during a traumatic imaging procedure at Harvard's New England Primate Research Center (NEPRC) where it is suspected the marmoset was so panicked that he suffered lethal injury during this course of events.  

Marmosets are being used to study the human ageing process which is something that is already being ethically investigated in humans very effectively.

Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) have uncovered new details about what happened and are asking for our help to convince NEPRC interim director Mark Barnes, J.D., LL.M., to immediately end the cruel and completely unnecessary experiment that killed the marmoset.  Federal authorities have been asked by PCRM to investigate the experiment but the marmosets are still at risk despite the protocol being suspended.
