Primate Products, Inc. makes a profit breeding and transporting animals to vivisection facilities across the country. They also import monkeys from China, Vietnam, Mauritius and elsewhere for use in research and testing. They sell both the tools of oppression and live monkeys to universities, the U.S. military and to notorious companies like Huntingdon Life Sciences.
The pictures on their homepage (www.primateproducts.com) depict baby-faced Rhesus monkeys living in the wild, with families and an abundance of enrichments. These images do not reveal the true story behind this exploitative business.
Recently, shocking photos from within Primate Products, taken by the Animal Liberation Investigation Unit, have exposed the suffering of primates. These photos depict lifeless monkeys, many bloodied with their skulls exposed.
[Warning: images are disturbing!]
The suffering of primates begins well before they enter the labs. The trade in primates causes animal misery on a massive scale.
Please ask Primate Products to end their primate trade !

Primate Products Inc. is directly responsible for the horrible suffering of animals trapped for the international primate slave trade. Your organization supports an unethical business that exploits living beings. The Primate Products' motto, "Better Primates, Better Products", fails to acknowledge that non-human primates are not products. They are living, breathing sentient beings.
Animals used in experimentation are subjected to torture when testing is performed. Many times the procedure is done while the animal is fully conscious because the use of anesthesia will allegedly distort the results. No animal test in use today has ever been properly validated, a fact that highly questions the reliability, accuracy, and relevance of animal test results. Vivisection has led us down countless scientific dead ends, while detracting attention and funds from more applicable scientific techniques.
Your company makes the useless torture of sentient beings possible - these moral crimes must end. Primate Products Inc. needs to stop profiting from the sale of living beings who will be tortured in laboratories.
I ask that you end your primate slave trade – now !
