Oct 28, 2011 — "True Blood" star Kristin Bauer is behind an online campaign on to protect captive chimpanzees, asking the U.S. Fish and Wildlife service to accord them the same protection that wild chimps receive. "I've always been fascinated by the incredible intelligence and rich, complex social lives of chimpanzees," said Bauer. "It would be shameful to see them go extinct in the wild as we continue to exploit them here in the U.S. in invasive experiments, entertainment and as pets." Concerned fans who'd like to support this cause can sign this online petition.
