As we’ve learned more about True Blood actress Kristin Bauer we’ve been continually impressed with her outspoken behavior towards animals and the environment.

Most recently, Bauer joined actor Gene Hackman in an effort to save 200 chimpanzees from being turned over to a Texas research laboratory for invasive experiments.

In a letter to Dr. Fancis S. Collins, head of the National Institutes of Health, the actress writes:

“I’ve always been fascinated by chimpanzees. We now know that these amazing animals use tools, grieve for their dead, and are capable of complex communication with humans. When chimpanzees are used in invasive experiments, they are often kept in small metal cages, deprived of normal social interaction, and subjected to harmful procedures…Please don’t send the Alamogordo chimpanzees back in the laboratory. These wonderful animals deserve so much better.”

As you’d suspect, we’re totally on team Hackman/Bauer on this one and would hate to see these incredible animals turned over to a lab for testing.
