Jane Goodall 'Sickened' by 'Shocking' Primate Research

Famed primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall is speaking out against the horrific primate research being conducted at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics (MPI) in Germany.

Goodall’s criticism follows the investigation shared by the BUAV and Soko Tierschutz which uncovered cruel experiments carried out on primates at MPI in order to learn more about how their brains process information.

Horrific footage shows monkeys undergo severe water deprivation and physical and psychological coercion as well as major surgery to implant head posts into their skulls.

After viewing the footage, Goodall said, “I have seldom been as sickened by any experiments – and the fact that this ‘basic research’ was carried out under the auspices of an institution as highly respected as the Max Planck makes it even more shocking. In fact I cannot understand how permits were granted to conduct experiments that can lead to the kind of suffering depicted in the video. I certainly hope that this research will be stopped, immediately, and the monkeys removed from those responsible for these unethical procedures. In addition they should be provided with some relief for their obvious suffering.”

Goodall’s plea for the experiments’ demise follows actor and animal activist, Ricky Gervais, who spoke out against the institute’s “research” last month.

Hopefully the BUAV and Soko Tierschutz will be successful in their fight against MPI.

    Thank you, Jane Goodall for stepping up against this barbaric behaviour of the Max Planck Institute! Please start a new project including small monkeys in your Great Ape Protection Act! It is very urgent to make this further step!

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
