Bucky is a capuchin monkey who has remained a captive Vivisector Raymond J. Bergeron since 1999. As the records attached below demonstrate, Bucky’s existence is now one of nightmarish deprivation, self-mutilation, misery and pain. Blood is repeatedly found in his cage, he is self-mutilating, vocalizing, and his hair pulling leaves bald spots. He is agitated and aggressive, exhibiting “stereotypical” pacing, biting of bars, tail holding, as well as scratching around his face and eyes. As of December 31, 2011, it appears that Bucky was still actively being driven insane.

Update (April 19, 2013): There is indeed a VOP Warrant out of Wayne County. It was issued on Tuesday at the behest of the University of Florida. Apparently, they had their detective subpoena Youtube about a dormant account that has not been used in almost a year. On that page appeared the banned and censored “Defiance is a Virtue” video. This should add credence to our assertions that my and my colleague’s arrests at an anti-vivisection protest last February 4 — as well as my extradition and prosecution in Michigan — were orchestrated by UF to shut down our campaign.

This site has been on hiatus since I inadvertently learned that the University of Florida had my probation terms out of Michigan amended in Florida. I served six months for an anti-vivisection campaign in Detroit and am currently on probation until December 5, 2015.
In August of 2010, we learned about a monkey named Louis. A lab tech pleaded with UF to release him to a sanctuary and stop his suffering. While the lab tech was on vacation, Louis was murdered and incinerated on July 9, 2010. UF wanted to ensure that the world would never see his deteriorated condition or know his story. In October of 2010, NIO’s campaign against UF commenced. Now we know that Louis was allowed to languish in torment with a broken hip and never given any pain relief. His records document callous neglect, violations of the law, and incompetence. In death, Louis has a voice.
Monkey 55D was named Little Girl by those responsible for her ten years of agony. Girl monkeys are rarely used and 55D suffered from the pain and misery that only a female being could. For the last three of her ten years at the hands of the evil Dennis Brooks, 55D was made to endure horrific “ophthalmology” experiments while Brooks knew she was suffering terribly from the endometriosis progressing through her little body. The final pathology after 55D’s murder:
There is—I would say inarguably—no more iconographic an image of both the animal liberation movement and the horrors of the vivisection-industrial complex than that of a black-masked individual cradling a baby stumptail macaque monkey in his or her arms. But the story behind that image is at least as significant and representative as the image itself. It is the story of Britches.
The Prisoner Project is about incarcerated humans, through their experience, giving a voice to our entombed nonhuman cousins. Danielle Wolfe has been locked in a concrete box for over 2 years with no end in sight. She has not breathed fresh air, has had no physical contact with her loved ones, and knows what it’s like to flirt with insanity due to her intensive confinement. She is now vegan and committed to the struggle for Animal Liberation. Her chilling words now speak for the animals who’s voices have been silenced…
UF wants desperately to shut us down to silence their victims. We have been involved in ongoing litigation for about two years and are constantly being hit with more obstacles. If you support our work, please consider contributing to our efforts to give the monkeys a voice. .
