      Subject: DawnWatch: ABC affiliate airs shocking primate testing footage --
      please send thanks 6/29/06

      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.

      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.

      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.

      The story is linked to the front page of the Investigators website at
      http://www.knxv.com/news/investigators/ where it is titled, "For the Greater
      Good?"
      Or you can go straight to the video story on line at

      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.

      The Investigators take comments at investigators@...

      Yours and the animals',
