The new government of Puerto Rico is allowing the construction of a "Monkey Factory"--the company BioCulture--where these highly inlelligent and social beings are going to be bred and kept in captivity all their lives with the only purpose of selling them to laboratories to perform painful procedures on them causing them suffering and even death.
This is frankly--disgusting! I don't know if there's a petition site to vote against this barbaric practice but when I find one, i will post it here.
This so called Monkey Factory doesn't help at all this island's general sensitivity and respect to animal lives. People must think, "If the government doesn't care, why should we? Well--this is comletely wrong!!! The fact that the government and the police authorities don't care if animal mistreatment is a crime, don't make it right.
If you're againt this, please search the internet and let the government of Puerto Rico and the Tourism Company know that this is bad for the animals and the image of the island.
