Primate Research Foes Will Open a Museum Between Two Primate Research Centers

A Wisconsin animal rights group wanted to build a museum that showcases "the history and current use of monkeys and apes in publicly funded experimentation," so it bought a piece of land right between two research centers that conduct publicly funded experiments on monkeys, the Daily Cardinal reports. When the University of Wisconsin-Madison learned about the plan, it tried to outbid the group, topping its offer of $675,000 with a promise of $1 million. But a circuit court ruled yesterday the first sale should be final, though the property's original owner is expected to appeal that ruling.
