It came as news to us how many chimpanzees remain in private captivity being tortured. Thank you Cher for publicizing this.
When you go to the website (National Anti-Vivisection Society) after you do this action item, you will see that there are lots of additional action items to help suffering animals that can be done with little more than a few computer clicks. Please everyone, do them. Thank you

done. No more test animals period and retirement for privately owned chimps. I never knew people could own chimps. I guess everything is for sale.
