Primate Torture In Massachusetts, the US and World
19 Jun 2010
Recent deaths of primates subjected to freezing
and baking have given momentum to the movement
to end laboratory research on captive victims.
Primate Torture In the US, UK
When Indira Gandhi was prime minister of India she found out that the US Navy had violated the US treaty with India that no primates would be used in military research. She banned primate export to the US. Now China and Malaysia are 2 of the largest breeders of captive primates for research. One Indian company is invested in Malaysia because of an Indian government ban.
