Bioculture, the company that planned to open a monkey-breeding facility in Guayama, Puerto Rico, suffered another crippling blow today when Puerto Rico’s Court of Appeals upheld a December 2009 Superior Court ruling that the construction of the facility was illegal because of zoning and permit issues.
Since the city of Guayama has also enacted a law banning the import, export, breeding, and use of monkeys in experiments within its boundaries, Bioculture’s shameful activities thankfully have no home in Puerto Rico.
Please help PETA’s ongoing efforts to keep monkeys out of laboratories by signing the White House petition to replace the U.S. Army’s cruel training exercises using monkeys with modern human-patient simulators.
