Chicago Lincoln Park Zoo officials are opposed to a commercial set to run during the football Super Bowl Sunday.The concern is that portraying the animal this way hampers conservation efforts of endangered chimpanzees and creates a market for wild chimps.

Noted and glad to sign to hopefully STOP using animals for entertainment.Here in England years ago chimpanzees were made to dress up for the PG tips adverts,i hated seeing them in clothes,they look so uncomfortable,they stopped using these beautiful animals for adverts a long time ago,it is cruel the same as it is for circus animals,we as humans have a choice to be entertainers animals do not have that choice!!!!!They belong in the wild to enjoy their freedom.Thank you dear Lindsey.Liz Xx What a cutie this little one is and i pray he/she will only know love and happiness.Thank you.

You'd think that after that high-publicity attack in which a fully mature male chimpanzee killed a woman's friend, people would realize that these animals, nor any other wild anima, for that matter, should be kept as "pets". Apparently, people are still not getting the message. As far as using these animals in commercials...Well, these people just flat out need a more intelligent, conscionable, creative advertising staff. This is ridiculous. Signed.

you can tell a lot about a person or society by the way it treats the beings it doesn't think it has to treat well
if we devalue anything we stand to lose everything
life has value beyond measure

“Animals are God’s creatures. He surrounds them with his providential care. By their mere existence they bless him and give him glory. Thus men owe them kindness. We should recall the gentleness with which saints like St. Francis of Assisi or St. Philip Neri treated animals.”—Catechism of the Catholic Church paragraph 2416

“Animals are God's creatures, not human property, nor utilities, nor resources, nor commodities, but precious beings in God's sight…Christians whose eyes are fixed on the awfulness of crucifixion are in a special position to understand the awfulness of innocent suffering. The Cross of Christ is God's absolute identification with the weak, the powerless, and the vulnerable, but most of all with unprotected, undefended, innocent suffering.”— Reverend Andrew Linzey

No animal should be used for commercial purposes unless the ASPCA or Humane Society is present on set to ensure that what the animal ishas been trained to do is ethical and in the performing of what the animal is to do, causes NO injury to said animal.
