Smart monkey. 


While I agree that on the surface this appears funny, I have a problem with what I perceive is silly research with 'caged' monkeys.  I believe we can learn an enormous amount from all animals, but not like this, and at least to me, not a surprise - deliberating aggravating a monkey and believing this is great scientific research to show that monkeys know when they are getting jerked around - like humans do.  Oh good, we've learned that we can piss a monkey off.   It's the parts that aren't like us that we have the most to learn from, and not from cages.  Humans are doing a pathetic job of being the so called 'superior' species - factory and dairy farming, zoos, keeping wild life in captivity and taking them from their natural habitat, research, entertainment and way too many more.

I came across this quote, which to me
says it all.

Marsha

Choosing to denounce "ownership" of our fellow beings,
and embrace "guardianship" instead, nurtures a mindset
for protecting human and other animals from harm.  As I
see it "ownership" is simply the license to do what one will
to one who is "owned" either with marginalized consequence
or none." - Doll Stanley, Director, IDA's Hope Animal Sanctuary.

\nI truly believe that one day we are going to look back at this time in history with horror - EXACTLY as we do with the sadistic Hitler. You have to be living in a cave by now if you don\'t know that experimenting on animals at it\'s very core is bad sc...
