Last night, Thursday June 29, the Phoenix ABC affiliate KNXV-TV aired a terrific report, by reporter Joe Ducey of "The Investigators," on the fight to keep the notorious Covance testing laboratory out of the city of Chandler.<br><br><br><br>
The anchors warn that some of the images are disturbing. The piece opens with an interviewee's voice saying "If it doesn't make you angry you are cold-hearted" as we see footage of monkeys struggling piteously, tied down on operating tables and, in one case, apparently encased in something that looks like a large test-tube.<br><br><br><br>
The Investigators let us know that the government investigated the Covance Virginia facility and issued 16 citations including handling a primate in an abusive member.<br><br><br><br>
The story is linked to the front page of the Investigators website at <a href="" target="_blank"></a> where it is titled, "For the Greater Good?"<br><br>
Or you can go straight to the video story on line at <a href="" target="_blank"></a><br><br><br><br>
Please watch the piece and thank reporter Joe Ducey and the ABC 15 Investigators team for this superb report. If you are in the Phoenix area, be sure to let the station know that you are local. Since the story is available on line everywhere in the world, those outside Phoenix should also send thanks for a story that other stations would be unwilling to air. Much positive feedback will encourage follow-ups and similar stories.<br><br><br><br>
