quotes

I had bought two male chimps from a primate colony in Holland.  They lived next to each other in separate cages for several months before I used one as a [heart] donor.  When we put him to sleep in his cage in preparation for the operation, he chattered and cried incessantly.  We attached no significance to this, but it must have made a great impression on his companion, for when we removed the body to the operating room, the other chimp wept bitterly and was inconsolable for days.  The incident made a deep impression on me.  I vowed never again to experiment with such sensitive creatures.

Help Ban Dog and Cat Fur

Liberty Over Violence, an Ontario grassroots animal rights group, recently started a campaign to help pass Bill C-439, tabled by Anita Neville back in September, to ban the import and sale of cat and dog fur in Canada. They are collecting signatures for the petition and doing a letter writing campaign as well, asking people to write to their MP. They want to make this a cross-Canada campaign. For more information and to download a copy of the petition go to their website.

Their Facebook site has info on their letter writing campaign.
