I want all the Chimps retired. Please don't leave 50 behind. So sad that many of these Chimps are now elderly and yet this is the 1st time any of them have ever seen sunlight,felt grass,smelled fresh air and are free to roam as they wish. This should be be allowed or tolerated. Animals for research is so agonizing for all animals. But for today i'm thrilled for these lucky ones!!! Did anyone notice the mama Chimp with all the goodies??? Very cute but i think she's a Hoarder!!!!! Thanks for this fab story,Karen.

Noted, tweeted, tweeted, shared. Great video; great article. Almost a completely happy ending except they need more money so more publicity will probably get that for them. It would also be fine if these chimps were used by any businesses that they make contributions to their future.
