Igor is a lovely boy! Thanks to IPPL for giving 25 years of peace & love. He is so deserving of, after spending so many years in a laboratory. May the rest of his years be as peaceful! Thanks for sharing Simone, I always enjoy these stories.

Why don't these idiot scientists use something closer to human for their experiments - like capital convicts, Iranians, or Chinese Communists? Monkey experiments have a poor validity record. As far as animals in a zoo, they'd be much more fun to view if they were back in the wild and wearing cameras than in cages.

I feel so bad at all the horror that Igor went through, its totally unfair, animals don't deserve to be treated like this from humans!
