“Face of Innocence”
by Graham McGeorge
“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.”
Silver River Macaques – pr
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Gainsville, Florida Feb 20, 2015
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, Forida. And now he has spent the last few weeks looking for answers. On January 31, 2015 McGeorge came across a monkey wearing a tight, strange looking collar.
The collar appeared to have rubbed the monkey’s neck raw, and the monkey appeared distressed. McGeorge immediately contacted Florida Fish and Wildlife to report the situation. He has received conflicting information about what happened next.
UF 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.
These are the pictures from some of the simultaneous events around that took place around the world on Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014, as activists stood together in solidarity against vivisectors. If you murder animals from 9 – 5, we will find you where you eat, sleep, and used to relax….
70 – 80 protestors showed up to speak for the Mazur monkeys and against the global slave trade.
On Saturday, November 15, activists around the world are rising up in solidarity against the vivisection complex. If you torture animals to death from 9 – 5, we will find you where you live… where you eat, sleep, and raise the kiddies…

A few preliminary events were announced last week. Here are some more actions that were made public over the weekend…

As of this morning, we have about 20 actions scheduled around the world, in 7 countries and on 3 continents, against vivisectors. We are taking our campaigns to their doorsteps. At one time, I would have said I envision anarchy in the streets. These days, I envision the Nov. 15 action being the seed that will grow into dozens of targeted, focused and comprehensive campaigns against vivisectors that make their lives almost as unbearable as their victims!!!
In addition to a number of actions at the homes of vivisectors who will remain unidentified, we expect persons involved with HLS, Charles River, Liberty Research and, possibly, Marshall Farms, to get some friendly visits. The published actions, however, currently include:

As we previously reported, Liberty breeds dogs and cats to be sold into vivisection labs. Many of these condemned felines have met the most horrific and brutal deaths imaginable inside the University of Florida. We now have verified information about some of their independent drivers who are solely responsible for driving these animals to their deaths.
