Stop Harmful Experimentation on Monkeys

Target: National Primate Research Center Directors John Morrison, Nancy L. Haigwood, Deepak Kaushal, Jay Rappaport, Michele A. Basso, Jon Levine, and Paul Johnson.

Goal: Stop monkey experimentation.

A truck on its way to a lab in Pennsylvania crashed on the highway. Inside, authorities found around 100 monkeys being transported in small crates. Three other monkeys were missing. Monkey feces and urine were smeared across the highway, causing hazardous consequences for vehicles driving by. The monkeys were not tested for any viruses, which is especially dangerous during a worldwide pandemic. When the three missing monkeys were found later, they were shot and killed due to orders from the CDC.

Monkeys carry various diseases such as West Nile virus, malaria, Chagas disease, simian immunodeficiency virus, herpes B, and hepatitis. All are transmittable to humans. The only way to stop the spread of disease from monkey to human is to close all of the seven lab facilities operated by the National Primate Research Center (NPRC). Centers are currently open in California, Oregon, Texas, Washington, Wisconsin, and Georgia. Not only is this dangerous to humans, but it is cruel to the monkeys. Tell the NRPC to stop experimenting on monkeys.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Center Directors of NPRC,

We demand the halt of monkey experimentation in your centers. The recent crash of a truck carrying monkeys in Pennsylvania, where three of the animals died and many others were exposed to potential injury, shows it is time to stop this cruelty. Experimentation is not fair to the monkeys or the public. Animals in labs suffer unimaginably while living in constant fear. Furthermore, humans are being plagued by a global pandemic and transporting live monkeys  can expose us to even more harmful diseases.

It is not ethical in any way to keep your business up and running. Every center should hear the concerns from the public, shut down, and find safe places to keep the monkeys.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Animals must be banned from being using in any so called “research experiments” anywhere, especially in the USA!!!

    There are much more cost effective, more valid and more humane methods of modern research such as: stem cell research, computer models and human volunteers.

    Stop the barbaric and useless cruel use of any animals(especially primates, dogs and cats) now!!!!!

    God Bless and protect these innocent animals.

  2. This is 2022!
    This is disgusting that these innocent primates are subjected to medical testing and research. This is barbaric!
    Shame. These innocent animals deserve to be wild and free. Not trapped in a cage, poked and prodded with research torture.
    Humans we are a disgusting breed. Heartless.

      YOU ARE RIGHT – YES, THE COWARDS THAT DO THAT ARE OF A ‘DISGUSTING BREED’.
      TOO BAD THEY ARE ALLOWED TO MASSACRE THOSE INNOCENT MONKEYS BECAUSE AS ALWAYS NOTHING SUCCESSFUL EVER MATERIALIZES OUT OF THOSE EXPERIMENTS.

    Dear Center Directors of NPRC,

    THE SO-CALLED SCIENTIFICS, ARE JUST A GROUP OF SADISTIC IGNORANT INDIVIDUALS, WHY DON’T DO THEY ESPERIMENT ON THEMSELVES, LIKE PASTEUR DID?
    BUNCH OF COWARDS!

  5. This is EVIL and UNJUSTIFIABLE! Whole species of monkey are being wiped out by labs for experiments! It is NOT ACCEPTABLE! It must STOP! NOW!

  6. All animal abusers globally must have the mandatory death penalty enforced.
