Last week the Animal Liberation Front targeted an obstetrician/gynecologist who is funded by the National Institutes of Health and uses non-human primates in his research. The Associated Press linkurl:reported;http://www.kgw.com/sharedcontent/APStories/stories/D8TCV7J03.html that Oregon Health & Science University researcher, linkurl:Miles Novy,;http://www.ohsu.edu/obgyn/novy/mncv.htm woke up last Thursday (Dec 6) to find one of his cars spray painted with the word "sadist" and another painted with the letters "A.L.F." The Animal Liberation Front claimed responsibility for the attack in a message sent to the AP, in which they accused Novy of the "senseless torture" of monkeys. Novy uses monkeys to study infections associated with pre-term labor.
