Harvard vows changes after 4th monkey death
Primate center to delay new testing
Harvard Medical School suspended new experiments at its New England Primate Research Center after a cotton top tamarin monkey died Sunday. It was the fourth monkey to die there under questionable circumstances in less than two years. While the incident is still being investigated, the elderly monkey did not have a water bottle in its cage, and the absence of water likely contributed to its death, a Harvard official said yesterday.
