“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!

Silver River Macaques – Press Release

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Distress
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.

Collard Monkey Update w/Action

Monday, February 16th, 2015

3

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. (more…)

UF Conducts “Illegal?” Wild Monkey Experiment

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

1

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.

Preliminary Events for the Nov. 15 Global Action: “The Vivisector Next Door”

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

vivisector next door 4

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.

If we want to compromise the vivisection complex infrastructure, two highly-strategic targets are the breeders and transport operators that deliver the nonhuman victims between concentration camps. So if you are in New York and seeking to make a real and substantial difference in ending vivisection, then today is your lucky day.

UF under scrutiny for alleged unethical animal treatment since ‘11

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

flyer pdf - june 16-page-001

by Chabeli Herrera (Independent Alligator)

Twenty-two goats, one rabbit and one puppy have died as a result of negligent care on behalf of UF, according to a complaint issued Monday by animal rights group Stop Animal Exploitation NOW. 

In two complaints issued to the U.S. Department of Agriculture since August, Stop Animal Exploitation NOW details several incidents beginning in 2011 that violated the Animal Welfare Act.

 “We believe the public has a right to know what goes on in those laboratories,” said executive director Michael Budkie. 

The first report, filed by UF in January 2012, involves the death of 22 goats due to severe anemia.In the 2011 incident, staff and graduate students performing studies on the goats failed to treat or euthanize them after the study was completed.  (more…)

Animal Liberation: The “Secret” to Success

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

strategyby Camille A. Marino

For years now, I’ve been stressing that we need to focus on one issue at a time, complete it successfully, and then move on to the next. We are up against a machine that dispatches animals to a global holocaust with ruthless efficiency. Their sole agenda is profits. And whether they like or dislike those with whom they work is irrelevant; they have a job to do. For a start, this is the mentality we must adopt.

Further, we cannot afford to be dilettantes, protesting greyhound races one week, a traveling circus the next, or, my own personal pet peeve, demonstrating against dog meet in Korea… that is, unless you’re actually in Korea!!!  When we post pictures of our unorganized and scattered efforts on Facebook, smiling behind our pretty signs that we wave at passing traffic, I can only imagine that industrial abusers are sitting back laughing at us in proportion to the degree I am slumping back in my chair cringing.

This is not to say that these issues are unimportant. Every animal who suffers at the hands of our species matters and our hearts ache every single time we witness another atrocity. But we cannot act on emotion. We need to emulate the enemy to successfully conquer the enemy. If we want to save them all, we need to be strategic, educated, and act intelligently. We need to reap the greatest possible return from our less-than-overwhelming  resources. This means that we need to study campaigns, understand what does and does not work, and allow our approaches to evolve accordingly.
