Ever see those “punch the monkey” banner ads? Ever thought “man, this would be a lot easier if the monkey was strapped to a table”? Ever follow through with that thought in real life? Well, these losers have.
PETA has sent the 253-page complaint and a videotape to the Department of Agriculture, requesting the lab be shut down until an investigation can be conducted.
“The tape shows experimenters using their power over the monkeys to torture and torment them, while lab supervisors stand by or even join in,” said PETA President Ingrid Newkirk.
To wit, they would strap monkeys to tables, and punch them repeatedly - rumor has it, they did it to create bruises so they could test concealer cream.
