#SaveOurMonkeys – Please speak out

Help #SaveOurMonkeysRight now there are thousands of monkeys held captive in the breeding farms of Mauritius. They will spend their lives producing babies, like these two monkeys known only as CM27 and CM28 who were exported from Mauritius to a research laboratory  in Europe. Three months later they were dead. They never got to experience a life in the wild and sadly never will.In the three short months these monkeys were at the laboratory, they experienced unimaginable suffering.A ‘head chamber’ was surgically implanted into their skulls, resulting in swelling and bleeding  wounds which became infected with MRSA.Clearly distressed by the foreign objects implanted into their heads, the monkeys often picked at their wounds, obviously in great discomfort. After being used in one last experiment, they were both killed on 4th December 2013, they were only 5 years old.

December 4th, marks the one year anniversary of their deaths. Sadly, it’s too late for them, but we don’t want them to be simply forgotten. We want to use this time to raise awareness about the plight of the many thousands of other monkeys who are still confined inside the breeding farms of Mauritius awaiting their fate. Will you help us?

We need to speak out for the monkeys of Mauritius and ensure that the sad lives of those like CM27 and CM28 were not in vain. Their lives were ones  of misery and suffering but you can help our campaign to save others from the same fate.

Petition · Please ensure dogs and cats who are “no longer required” are released by laboratories · Change.org

Every year hundreds of cats and thousands of dogs suffer and die in cruel experiments in the UK. The BUAV believes this should end.

And there’s a further issue. Other animals may be used but are not killed as part of the experiment. Still others are bred for research but not used and considered ‘surplus to requirements.’ However, without any effort to release or find homes for them outside the laboratory, these animals are simply killed – denied the opportunity of freedom.

Bonnie and Billie, pictured above, are two female beagles used and discarded by an industry that treated them as nothing more than breeding machines to produce litter after litter of puppies for the research industry. In August 2013, they gave birth to 11 puppies, all of whom were used in an experiment and dead in just a few weeks. Bonnie and Billie, no longer serving a purpose, were due to be killed also.

However, they are the lucky ones – thanks to the BUAV they were saved from death, along with Oliver, a 5 month beagle puppy.

Stop the cruel Mauritius monkey trade!

Stop the cruel Mauritius monkey trade!

via Avaaz – Stop the cruel Mauritius monkey trade!.

Mauritius is the second largest supplier of monkeys for the research industry in the world, exporting up to 10,000 animals every year. These animals are exported primarily to the USA and the European Union, in particular the UK, France and Spain.

The BUAV has uncovered the slaughter of hundreds of monkeys, considered ‘surplus’ to requirement, including pregnant females and youngsters, at one of the largest primate breeding companies on the island, Noveprim Ltd.

This senseless slaughter is just one part of the cruel trade in primates from the island. An earlier investigation carried out by the BUAV obtained evidence of the cruelty and suffering involved in the trapping and breeding of wild monkeys on Mauritius. They are torn from their families and jungle homes and imprisoned in unnatural conditions in large facilities, to produce babies who will later be exported thousands of miles to laboratories around the world to suffer in experiments.
