PRESS RELEASE
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!” read more

Once again I ask, Minister of Propaganda who lied to Florida Media, saying they are only exploiting one Wild Monkey!

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!

Ocala photographer believes monkey was harmed by UF researchers

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. read more

“Face of Innocence”

Face of Innocence“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.”

Collard Monkey Update w/Action

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?

UF Monkeys Get National Attn at Veggie Pride Parade in NY & Dual Demos in FL

Sunday, March 30 was a huge day for the monkeys enslaved inside the University of Florida. Two days earlier, Eleventh Hour for Animals filed a third federal complaint, this time for Booger, a sick, infected, and compromised macaque who was just approved for three more years of torture inside UF simply because the funding was available to do so. And despite a University-of-Florida-initiated media blackout in Gainesville to keep their crimes hidden from the public, activists are stepping up in greater numbers to make sure the world learns of the taxpayer-funded atrocities thriving in their dungeons.

“We got quite a bit of support, got some flyers out (with the incredible new complaint by Eleventh Hour for Animals attached), got NO finger flipping us off , and talked about UF with a couple pedestrians.

Federal Complaint Filed: Shut down UF’s Primate Labs for repeated violations of state & federal law

Last week Eleventh Hour for Animals introduced “Booger,” a victim inside the University of Florida who was contaminated with German Measles from the day he was purchased from the now-defunct Primate Products in Miami. Never treated for this condition, he has steadily deteriorated, exhibiting increasing indications that he is descending into madness, his body compromised by repeatedly being force-fed poisons at the direction of Raymond J. Bergeron for over a decade, and, recently, he began throwing his own feces at his tormenters in a feeble attempt to fight back. In January, he was just approved for another 3 years of torture that will turn Bergeron’s pockets crimson red with the blood of this pitiful victim. The following complaint has just been filed with the USDA for 6 counts of federal violations and to demand that the primate torture industry inside UF be shut down permanently for the reasons enumerated below.

The following comments have been compiled by the distinguished professor of political science, Dr. Barry Friedman and appear below as an unaltered snapshot of the denounciations of the University of Florida that appear on the site of the University of North Georgia. UNG has not endorsed any of these statements and they appear solely because of the efforts of Freedom Fighter Barry Friedman…

Marco Salemi – $MILLIONS of Monkeys Unaccounted for Inside University of Florida

by Camille A. Marino

Almost every single time I learn something new, it only serves to highlight how much more I still have to learn. This is especially true when it comes to the obscured and intentionally-convoluted animal torture industry inside the University of Florida for which taxpayers award them approximately $400 million annually.

For five years now, I have been filing open records requests for veterinary records and protocols for every single nonhuman primate that the USDA confirms is inside of UF after each inspection of their labs. Although the USDA is a client-based agency that was established in 1862 to promote the interests of industrial animal abusers, these rubber-stamp inspection reports exist to give the public the impression that there is some accountability for how their money is bein
