Corner of W 8th St and N Davis St.
(close to UF’s Science Center)
Join us for another peaceful protest to tell the University of Florida and taxpayers to stop archaic primate testing and send all monkeys to sanctuaries. Sure, we all love the UF Gators! But while the rest of the world continues to ban many or all forms of animal testing, UF continues to torture the innocent. Please lend your voice and tell UF free the monkeys, get them to sanctuaries and insist they end primate testing! This week we protest the barbaric primate program at UF’s Health hub in Jacksonville. (Next we’re back in Gainesville, then on to Orlando and Tampa)

The primates UF tortures arrive at their labs as children 2-4 yrs old ripped from their moms in the wild and are used in experiments- often shared back and forth between vivisecters- for up to 10 yrs each. Primates are imprisoned in the UF labs, poisoned, sickened, and killed when alternatives are available. Among 1000s of other animals, more than 200 are forced to endure painful experiments without anesthesia. UF has lost 2 lawsuits to animal rights activists and the vet records of agony and torture have been made public- and a federal investigation has been called for at UF for an especially heinous treatment of a young primate. Right now, 25 monkeys are being tortured in experiments that require the little guys are DENIED any pain relief.
PLEASE SIGN ELEVENTH HOUR FOR ANIMALS’ PETITION NOW!
We are now pouring over a new batch of monkey vet records (atrocities) from UF, getting ready to publish them in layman’s terms for all to see. Click here to read about the last batch of furbabies being hurt for “science.” The articles are from Empty All Cages and Eleventh Hour For Animals.
