Moo-ving people toward compassionate living
From Gary Adams - 10 Mar 2003
Mary and Frank,
You know, I started looking up information on the internet about monkeys because I wanted to buy one.
Some of the links that came up were about vivisection. I had only been vaguely aware of the use of primates in labs before. These little animals are so intelligent and sociable. Sentencing them to a life in solitary confinement in an empty box with absolutely nothing to do but wait for the next bout of torture, is just reprehensible.
I've also been shocked to find out that most of the experiments being performed on primates have either already been, or will have results that will not be applicable to humans. I read an account the other day of a sergeant in the army who entered a room filled with some kind of tear gas. All of the macaques in the room were happily eating their monkey chow. Thinking the gas was ineffective, he removed his gas mask and immediately passed out. What is the point?
I don't know what is worse -- experimenting on a little infant and then killing it to examine its organs, or sentencing a primate to a life of 30 or 40 years in solitary confinement.
Also, I think you were right about about the picture of the infants that died in transit. They do look more like monkeys than chimps.
Keep up the good work!!!!
