Notorious serial killer James David Jentsch poses in his garden for this Oct. 25 tweet. His new address is: 467 Boswell Hill Road, Endicott, NY 13760

‘Twas a month before Christmas
And all through the labs
His bloody victims were screaming
Restrained on their slabs

Security cameras were hung by Jentsch’s henchmen with care
As he trembled that the ARM might soon visit him there
He hired security goons to escort him to and fro
And pined for the days when he wasn’t so well known

But James David Jentsch became a sadist a long time ago
And he forfeited all rights to live in peace the day he decided to torture his first victim!

Press Release
For Immediate Release
June 15, 2015

The University of Florida is once again unlawfully withholding records and images documenting the unmitigated horrors to which they subject animals for profit. And Eleventh Hour is once again dragging them back into court to gain access to their hellish labs. In this latest battle in a five year war between the two entities, the University contends that experiments in which they are blinding untold numbers of mice in addition to dogs and ultimately non-human primates, are exempt from public disclosure according to section 1004.22, Florida Statutes. This law protects trade secrets and other proprietary information. Eleventh Hour contends that millions of taxpayers dollars are being applied for and awarded to certain vivisectors who’s atrocities are therefore fully within the public domain.

Attorney Marcy I. LaHart filed a six page lawsuit in The Circuit Court of The Eighth Judicial Circuit  Alachua County, Florida on Friday June 12th, 2015 on behalf of Eleventh Hour For Animals’ Senior Lab Investigator Karen Kline. Ms. LaHart demonstrates that UF is flagrantly ignoring the law, withholding public records from this activist group, and calls for an immediate hearing.

For Immediate Release
March 9, 2015

Today, Eleventh Hour For Animals has just filed a complaint with the USDA demanding a mandatory Federal investigation into the secret and potentially – illegal “research” to which the University of Florida is subjecting wild monkeys along the Silver River in Marion, Co Florida. Exclusive images captured by Freelance Photographer Graham McGeorge. and published last month depict a wild macaque with a primitive tracking collar device attached tightly around his neck. According to Graham McGeorge, who was able to physically see this monkey, “when I spotted the macaque, he was distressed and had distanced himself from the troop, he also had deep wounds and cuts to his neck with blood on his chest!”


In the complaint, Eleventh Hour’s Senior Lab Investigator, Karen Kline, states “Rhesus Macaques have lived along the Silver River for nearly 100 years. Yet the attached communications with the Department of Environmental Protection demonstrate that UF has taken the position that, since these primates were trapped and brought to this county almost a century ago as an “invasive species” they are entitled to no protection. Eleventh Hour maintains that since the disturbed colony of macaques was, in fact, born at Silver River, the latest of many generations must be afforded the same protection as indigenous species. In the State of Florida, experiments on wild animals are illegal. Therefore UF’s “research at Silver River is illegal.” The University has been less then forthcoming about the exact nature of their interest in the Silver River macaques. Therefore, Eleventh Hour has filed 2 open Records Requests to ascertain the details of the experiments as well as the source of funding. The group filed a further request with Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Department to secure all licences that UF may have purchased over the last 10 years. Ms. Kline goes on to document that, at the very least, the University of Florida had admitted to and supplied Eleventh Hour with proof of their negligence. “We’ve heard several conflicting accounts from UF and have an example to show here. This first statement was published in the Ocala Post on March 5, 2015, by UF Assistant Vice President Janine Sikes and states “The monkey was observed with her her group, feeding, grooming and behaving normally.”

Screenshot from 2015-03-13 11:42:03 March 6, 2015  an email from Major Brad Barber of the University of Florida Police Department, containing  protocols for the “research” being done on the Silver River monkeys, began with a note:
1) The researchers retrieved the collar. The researchers have attempted to verify the monkey’s well being but have not located the monkey since the collar fell off.

Screenshot from 2015-03-13 13:39:55Quoting Graham McGeorge, the photographer,  with whom there is no doubt, did in fact view this monkey “When I first spotted the macaque, he seemed distressed and had distanced himself from the troop, he had deep wounds and cuts to his neck with blood on his chest!”

While Eleventh Hour continues to investigate, a corresponding Federal investigation of UF is necessary. They must be held accountable for their illegal activities and wanton negligence and the appropriate sanctions imposed.

For the past 5 years,
Eleventh Hour for Animals, an initiative launched by Negotiation Is Over, has been documenting and exposing the $400 million annual animal experimentation business hidden away in UF’s dungeons. After several successful lawsuits, legal actions, and federal complaints, the group remains committed to ending all atrocities to which UF subjects animals. Sadly, the group is preparing to release information of the most diabolical monkey experiments, currently under way inside UF.



Breaking News:
Documents obtained by 11th hr. prove that UF is conducting research, on at least 8 Wild Monkeys, in the Silver River Park area and these collars are to be left on these monkeys for a time period of 1 year, contrary to the 2 months they want the media to print.
In all actuality, one can clearly view the picture and know the collar was on much longer than “2 months”
Experiments on Wild Animals in Florida is Illegal!
More breaking news to follow as our investigation continues!

Ocala, Florida — Graham McGeorge has spent the last five years photographing a feral colony of Rhesus Macaques, a type of monkey, along the Silver River in Ocala, Florida. But for the past several weeks he has been looking for answers.

On February 20, Ocala Post was contacted by Karen Kline from Negotiations Are Over, in reference to a particular monkey McGeorge had been photographing.

Kline stated that on January 31, 2015, McGeorge had stumbled upon a monkey wearing a GPS collar, which appeared to be constricting the monkey’s neck and rubbing it raw.

Concerned for the well-being of the monkey, McGeorge said he immediately contacted Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. He was then referred to the University of Florida, because that is who placed the tracker on the monkey.

Kline said after contacting UF, she and McGeorge were provided with conflicting information about the monkey. She said that’s when they reached out to Ocala Post.

Ocala Post then contacted UF and inquired about the situation.

UF Assistant Vice President , Janine Sikes, released the following statement:

“The University of Florida is studying the habitat use and movement patterns of the Rhesus Macaques in Silver Springs Park. A single macaque was collared in December as part of this study. UF researchers were notified February 2, about the concerns of Mr. McGeorge. The researchers immediately sought advice from their project veterinarian, who recommended the collar be removed. The very next day, UF sent a signal to a satellite, which enabled the collar to fall off the monkey. That process took a few days, but we confirmed that the collar was no longer on the animal on Sunday, February 8.

Other than the abrasion caused by the collar, the macaque appeared in good health. The monkey was observed with her group, feeding, grooming, and behaving normally.”

However, McGeorge does not believe that the monkey had only been wearing the collar for approximately two months; he believes it was much longer.

He said he wanted proof that the collar had been removed, but alleges that UF refused to supply proof.

” Unfortunately, their past history does not lead one to believe they are a reputable organization,” McGeorge said.

McGeorge said he hasn’t seen the monkey since the incident, but will keep looking for answers.

Researchers said they will continue to observe the animals in the Silver River area.

“Rhesus Macaques have frequented the Silver River since the 1930’s. Brought here against their free will almost ninety years ago, they are still considered an invasive species. At what point do they earn the environmental protective rights of the native animals ?

The University of Florida is conducting research on these monkeys and the state is turning a blind eye. This abuse and cruelty has to stop now!

We are getting conflicting stories from all sources, and this means but one thing….Lies, lies, lies!
If you are on the Silver River, please keep your eyes peeled and let me know of any collared or injured sightings…thank you.”

8UF is claiming the collar was removed from the Macaque photographed by the Silver River in FL, but will not provide any proof.
Unfortunately their past history does not lead one to believe they are one of a Reputable Organization.
1. They are claiming that only one macaque was collared.
2. They claim the one macaque was not injured, but will give no proof.
3.They acknowledged the Open Records Request sent on Tues, 10th 2015, the same day which is highly unusual for UF, but giving the benefit of the doubt, I will continue to wait a “reasonable amount of time” until further action is taken.
I have added pictures of this Rhesus Macaque, so you may see for yourself and make your own decision. There was no treatment given to the macaque, which should have been the very first thing done, that is if you want things done in a humane manner.They claim it causes less distress to catch the monkey to give veterinary care but they didn’t seem to think twice when the caught him to attach an oversized, stone-age collar, to “begin” an experiment, did they! Humane they say ….
If the collar was removed anyone in this area please keep your eyes open for a macaque with an injured neck. If you have friends that Kayak in this area please spread the word, they may help as well.
The pictures I have seen look as though, there are clearly injuries under the collar that need medical attention, this monkey must be in distress and I do not take UF’s “word” for anything!
They have as yet to give any type of proof concerning the health and welfare of this monkey and I dare say “are there more” was there really only one?

The DEP confirmed that UF is experimenting on the Silver Springs Monkeys. It is illegal to experiment on wild monkeys.
UF contends that Rhesus Macaques are non-native and therefore the DEP laws do not apply.
We will be updating information as our investigation continues. The details of these experiments will be made public as soon as they are available.

During the holiday season, as humans enjoy the luxury of spending time with our loved ones, the only relevant constant for the animals is that they are afforded no relief. They are entombed in cages inside granite bunkers, deprived of every semblance of normality and destined to die in the misery that enriches their tormentors. And as their freedom fighters, the only significance this season should have for us to assess our strategies, our gains and losses over the past 12 months, and figure out how to go forward with greater focus and vehemence as each year unwinds.
