Opposition to Res 35

We were recently able to review the comments emailed to the Dane County Board of Supervisors regarding Resolution 35. For more on the resolution visit

Of particular interest is the fact that the overwhelming majority of the people who don’t want the county to establish a Citizens' Advisory Panel to look into the use of monkeys at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are either directly involved in animal experimentation at the university, or else, are involved in the industry in some other way.

Here is a complete list of the people and organizations that took the time to email the Dane County Board of Supervisors to voice their opposition to Resolution 35.

The two marked (undisclosed) failed to identify themselves as employees of the university.
