"Chimpanzees suffer in captivity, as they are exploited in
entertainment, dressed up as pets, dragged around as photographers'
props, and imprisoned, in the name of science, in tiny, barren steel
cages. I am haunted by dull, blank eyes staring out onto a world that
offers them no hope. The least I can do is speak out for them. They
cannot speak for themselves."
"To me, cruelty is the worst of human sins. Once we accept that a
living creature has feelings and suffers pain, then by knowingly and
deliberately inflicting suffering on that creature, we are guilty,
whether it be human or animal."
