Academy-award winning acctress Anjelica Huston is the latest Hollywood heavyweight recuited by PETA to help put an end to animal cruelty. In this case, Huston is coming out against the use of great apes in the entertainment industry.

“It’s a sad story that starts when the animals are babies, when they are torn away from their mothers and forced to depend upon human trainers,” says Anjelica. “Great ape mothers are fiercely protective of their newborns, which means that they must be tricked, sedated, or forcibly restrained when their infants are pulled from their arms. This cruel practice leaves lifelong emotional scars on both the mothers—who go into a deep depression—and the babies.”

You can check out the full story over on PETA’s site, nomoremonkeybusiness.com, or watch the video featuring Huston here.
