Subject: The future of the Baxter chimpanzees

Dear Sir or Madam,

Hereby I am urging you to find an adequate solution for the lab chimps abused by Immuno/Baxter, which does justice by the chimpanzees. To deport some of the traumatized apes that have been used in HIV and Hepatitis research to a Hungarian zoo is as much of a stopgap as leaving the animals in the equally inappropriate facility in Gänserndorf. If Baxter continues to support this solution, the company will fail to live up to their responsibilities towards the chimpanzees.

The 41 chimpanzees have been ruined physically and mentally for the interests of the pharmaceutical companies for years, following their legally questionable import to Austria. The transfer of these abused apes to Safari Park Gänserndorf, which has gone bankrupt in the meantime, - was advised against massively at the time.

This should not be followed by the next kneejerk solution, putting in jeopardy the established social groups. A sound solution must be found, which meets the special welfare needs of these debilitated apes.

By taking over Immuno, Baxter has assumed the responsibility for these chimpanzees. Therefore I urge you to use the capacity of your corporation to prevent the realization of the current plan, and to work for a mutual and sustainable solution for the "Baxter Chimpanzees"!

Best regards,

[first name] [last name]
