Yemassee, S.C. – Please see the next assertion from PETA Vice President Dr. Alka Chandna concerning the U.S. Division of Agriculture’s not too long ago posted official warning issued to monkey vendor Alpha Genesis Inc. (AGI) for 3 severe violations of the federal Animal Welfare Act, after 4 monkeys died and 4 others have been significantly injured due to the corporate’s negligence. An toddler monkey at AGI died after turning into entangled in gauze materials used to connect a water bottle to a cage. Two monkeys died after their fingers grew to become trapped in constructions of their enclosures—however nobody observed. A feminine monkey sustained grave accidents from incompatible cagemates and was discovered useless after employees negligently moved her to the flawed enclosure. 4 different monkeys required veterinary care after they have been positioned in incorrect enclosures. AGI holds $17 million in contracts with the Nationwide Institutes of Well being to provide the company with monkeys for experimentation.

The 4 monkeys who died and the 4 who have been significantly injured are Alpha Genesis Inc.’s newest victims in an extended historical past of incompetence. Monkeys have strangled and frozen to dying, died of dehydration, and been killed by different burdened animals. Dozens of monkeys have escaped and by no means been discovered. The ache and trauma endured by the monkeys at this facility don’t appear to trouble the Nationwide Institutes of Well being—the company is considered one of its greatest shoppers. Alpha Genesis ought to lose its license to promote monkeys, and the feds have to shut down this soiled firm and the whole nefarious enterprise of importing, breeding, warehousing, and promoting monkeys.
