Ask University to Release Monkeys to Sanctuary

The University of Utrecht recently announced that they will end their primate research program as of January 1, 2011 . Although this is great news, the faith of the remaining five long-tailed macaque monkeys has not yet been determined. The University is considering killing the primates and putting their brains into a database, giving them to the Nijmegen University for similar types of experiments, or handing them over to one of the many sanctuaries that have already agreed to provide for them.

Please ask that they release the monkeys to a sanctuary !
