Since my last post was about a bizarro world where chimps evolved from humans, I thought I'd share this positive news about our fellow simians.
I've also posted before about laboratory chimps being set free & the moving way they react to their newly-acquired freedom.
The Monkey Buddha Archives:
Recently, the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced that it will be retiring the last of it's lab chimps used for scientific research. They will be retired to an animal sanctuary to live a more enjoyable life.
It is a small dent in the cruelty and horror humanity inflicts on animals continuously around the world, but it is at least a step in recognizing the intelligent minds and conscious perceptions of these beings.
How would you feel if you were put in a cage & experimented on? That is exactly how a chimp, monkey, or any other sentient creature feels. An animal is just not thinking about it's misery in the form of language. The pleasure expressed when the animals are free is undeniable.
