Burning them alive is not exploitative?

when i worked in an animal lab, there were threats of animal rights groups breaking in and releasing the rats. because those rats would so be able to make it out in the wilds of NYC. i believe the monkey lab(s) here received similar threats:)

Because there are so many monkey species native to NYC, I guess that would work!

well, i wouldn't mind monkeys instead of squirrels on the CU campus:)
really, though, as far as animals sold in pet store, i have no problem with the bred-in-captivity ones, but most exotics are captured in the wild, of which most die during transportation, and the rest are absolutely infested with various internal parasites. why the animal rights groups can't try to change the laws about animal import say, and demand tougher standards for breeders, i'll never know.

It is not hard to teach monkeys to fling feces at passersby. You just have to keep them in a dorm with drunk freshmen and the pick it up.
