We can be such a cruel species.
Chimps in an Austrian lab were help prisoner for thirty years, subjected to cruel and painful experiments, infected with HIV, never knowing a moment of freedom, or a kind touch, were finally freed. They smiled, hugged each other and marveled at the sun. It was glorious to watch and oh so hearbreaking and heatwarming.
I know this is a wolf blog and our precious wolves are being slaughtered at an alarming rate but I had to take just a minute to share this with you. We must stop experimentation on great apes and all animals. It is torture, cruel and unneccsary.
