TWO SOLID VICTORIES FOR PRIMATES IN LOS ANGELES!
#1) UCLA Primate Population REDUCED!
#2) Evil Primate Vivisector Arthur Rosenbaum Does NOT Renew Grant!
In a very quiet move, UCLA has given one colony of 450 vervet monkeys to
Wake Forest University in North Carolina. This monkey colony was
"managed/imprisoned " by the notorious primate vivisector Lynn Fairbanks
since 2000. The move began last year during the ongoing heat of animal

http://www.npi. ucla.edu/ research/ centers// primate/ in part because UCLA
decided that since fewer and fewer people are entering the world of primate
vivisection (given the intense campaign against them,) it wasn't worth it to
house 450 victims without more primate abusers arriving to garnish
additional grant money.
While this will result in less vivisection at UCLA, Lynn Fairbanks and
others are STILL vivisecting primates. Fairbanks has a grant studying how
monkeys cope with a very "stressful life change" - in this case, the
primates being moved to North Carolina University where further vivisection
will be done on them. She also is one of the authors of a published paper
this past May, along with Baldwin Way and William Melega, addicting vervet
monkeys to methamphetamines.
Regarding another primate vivisector, we have gotten news that Arthur
Rosenbaum a sadistic primate abuser at UCLA did NOT renew his grant to
continue visisecting primates in his strabismus experiment. His grant, which
ran out in September of this year was supposed to have been extended until
2010; but he made the decision to NOT renew it and there are rumors that he
may be taking an "early retirement" soon!
Unfortunately, there are still hundreds of non-human primates being tortured
in horrible experiments at UCLA at this very moment. Hopefully those who are
close to UCLA and on the "inside" will seek out these monsters and hold them
accountable (legally of course.)
There are approximately ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND non-human primates experimented
on every year in the United States alone. This and other animal vivisection
must end, and as you can see from the above it appears that activists are
definitely having an effect. It may not be as fast as it should be for the
primates being tortured and killed inside laboratories, but we believe that
in the years to come as long as we keep up the fight for animal liberation
NO sane, intelligent, savvy and caring research scientist will torture
animals for fraudulent experiments that will simply fill their pockets with
