It almost seems like away for the NIH to hold on to some power by keeping the chimps there.Too much power can be an ugly thing.It is tie for the chimps to go do what they do naturally.

Signed & Shared! Poor privately owned chimps. I hope that they too will be able to retire soon! They have been robbed of all their freedom and any kind of a life outside a cage and being poked and prodded and in many cases, even worse, for decades! Many, of course lost their lives for no justifiable reason!
