Save UBC Monkeys From Death

The University of British Columbia intends to kill four rhesus monkeys in order to study Parkinson's disease.
Parkinson's disease is a serious illness that is specific to humans. In the experiment, the monkeys will be injected with a toxin that will artificially produce Parkinson's-like symptoms, and subsequently killed for post-mortem analysis.
The group ”Stop UBC Animal Research” has offered to buy the monkeys and send them to a sanctuary.
