In the triumphant finale to a long, hard legal struggle over a suit filed by PETA and citizens of Guayama, Puerto Rico, the Puerto Rican Supreme Court upheld the decisions of the lower courts that the monkey-breeding facility built in Guayama by Bioculture, Inc., was constructed illegally and therefore cannot be opened for business!

The court also denied Bioculture’s motion to reconsider the ruling. So, as Kathy Guillermo, PETA’s vice president of laboratory investigations, put it, “The final nail is now in Bioculture’s coffin, and the 4,000 monkeys and generations of their offspring who would have suffered and died for the company’s profit have been officially spared.”

Muchas gracias to everyone who helped put a stop to Bioculture’s plan to capture monkeys from their homes in the wild, imprison them in cages, and then sell their offspring for use in painful and deadly experiments at notorious facilities such as Shin Nippon Biomedical LaboratoriesCharles River Laboratories, and Covance.

Now, let’s put another nail in the nasty monkey-pimping-and-torture coffin. Click here to urge airlines that still transport nonhuman primates to U.S. laboratories for cruel experiments to cut out the monkey business.

    Born and bred in Britain. I've always lived with animals and loved finding out new information/ caring about them. I currently do eat meat although I am not a huge lover and I do intend on going vegetarian when I'm older. I've always wanted to support charities and I am the head fund raiser at my school. I am looking forward to supporting Peta and becoming a member of their Street Team!
