Danville, Pa. – Please see the assertion by primatologist and PETA science advisor Dr. Lisa Jones-Engel on the escape of a minimum of 4 monkeys following the crash of a truck carrying 100 monkeys to a laboratory:

As a result of these 100 long-tailed macaque monkeys had been headed to a laboratory to be caged, tormented, and killed, they had been already in peril—however now the general public is, too. The 4 who received away are undoubtedly terrified and sure injured, they usually could also be harboring viruses which can be transmissible to people. There isn’t any approach to make sure that monkeys are virus-free, and state veterinary and different data present that monkeys in laboratories within the U.S. have been discovered with tuberculosis, Chagas illness, cholera, and MRSA. The one approach to make sure that pathogens don’t soar from monkeys to people is to cease importing, caging, and experimenting on these animals.
