According to the report from the USDA, OU was cited last month for hosing down infant monkeys and baboons, risking the animals lives to hypothermia, all the while storing them in unsanitary cages filled with excrement and other assorted filth. The report noted that the persons in care of the animals were ill-trained and had no knowledge of care-taking or sanitizing procedures in regards to the handling of the animals.

A phone call to James Tomasek, the vice-president for research mentioned in the Bloomberg article, went unanswered. However, he did go on record in an emailed statement to the press to say that the University “takes seriously its obligation to comply with all federal and regulatory standards related to animal welfare,”

The report goes on to note that this isn’t the first time that the University of Oklahoma has been taken to task in how it treats its animal research subjects: they been cited 16 times over the past two years, including, in 2013, “euthanizing dogs by electrocuting them with a 9-volt battery attached to their hearts while the animals were under anesthesia,” according to the Bloomberg story.

Maybe they thought it was Bob Stoops and his brother Mike Stoops.
