Animal research is stupid and cruel, and it doesn't work (remember thalidomide).

Using rare chimps to reseach overpopulated and invasive humans is like using California codors to reseach the problems of English sparrow.

Yes, animal "research" is stupid and cruel. I hope so much that they listen to us, it is painful to even think about what these animals go through. Signed, thank you Tonya.
