Boston – Please see the following statement from PETA primate scientist Dr. Lisa Jones-Engel regarding reports that animal testing behemoth Charles River Laboratories would be transporting 1,000 laundered monkeys back to Cambodia:

The monkeys did not leave Charles River Laboratories. PETA stationed individuals all day long outside the company’s Houston facility, and none of the 1,000 monkeys who were in danger of being shipped back to Cambodia left. Thousands of PETA supporters e-mailed and called the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, urging the agency to release the animals to a sanctuary instead of allowing them to be sent back to Cambodia to be funneled back into the forest-to-laboratory pipeline. PETA pledges $1 million for the placement of all the monkeys at Born Free USA primate sanctuary in Texas.
