Tell Feds That Trafficked Monkeys Must Be Sent to Sanctuary Homes
Charles River Laboratories—a giant supplier of animals to laboratories—is now under federal investigation for alleged monkey-import violations. Its victims must be sent to sanctuary homes.

Notorious monkey trafficker Charles River Laboratories intends to truck about 1,000 endangered, illegally imported long-tailed macaques from Houston to Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday morning (March 14), where they will be put on the next flight back to Cambodia to be returned to the smuggling pipeline for the experimentation industry—apparently with the blessing of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) and the U.S. Department of Justice.

An online space for the vegan people of Lemmy.

Rules and miscellanous:

  1. We take for granted that if you enage in this community, you understand that veganism is about the animals. You either are vegan for the animals, or you are not (this is not to say that discussions about climate/environment/health are not allowed, of course)
  2. No omni/carnist apologists. This is not a place where to ask to be hand-holded into veganims. Omnis coddling/backpatting is not tolerated, nor are /r/DebateAVegan-like threads
  3. Use content warnings and NSFW tags for triggering content
  4. circlejerking belongs to /c/vegancirclejerk
  5. Lemmy’s CoC applies here too, of course
  6. in case you need to report something, use Lemmy’s native tool or message one of the mods on Matrix
  7. sorry for the passive-aggressive tone of these rules
