PETA Calls for Federal Investigation At Vanderbilt After Whistleblowers Report

Leaked Memo Indicates That Monkeys’ Skulls Were Drilled Into While Animals Were Conscious Nashville, Tenn. — PETA is urging the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to investigate a whistleblower complaint that experimenter Jeffrey D. Schall performed brain surgeries on macaque monkeys at Vanderbilt University without properly anesthetizing them. In addition to demanding that immediate disciplinary action be taken against Schall if he is found to have violated the federal Animal Welfare Act (AWA), PETA has also written to the national Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare to demand that Schall’s federal funding be revoked.
