Binky, 2002


Date of birth: April 10,1989.

Binky was born at LEMSIP and had the unusual privilege of staying in his mother's cage for 3 months. In eight years, this young male known as "Ch-665" was knocked down 136 times-mostly for cage changes and tooth cleanings. He was used in 4 studies in 7 years and was generally considered a 'well-adjusted individual' even though by the time he was 3 years old he was already being treated for self-inflicted wounds.
