After three baboons seeking freedom made headlines, Australians are now facing the reality that experiments using primates are taking place here too.

Life in a laboratory cage is no life at all for a thinking, feeling, emotional being – human or baboon.

This footage is from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the U.S, where animal experimenters saw open monkeys’ skulls and suction out bits of their brains. Then, they lock monkeys in tiny cages and scare them with rubber snakes and spiders. Not ONE of these tests have ever helped humans.

With hundreds of primates among the millions of animals languishing in Australian labs, it would be ignorant to hope that these kinds of tests don’t happen right here in our own backyard.
