PAID ADVERTISEMENT SEVERE CONFINEMENT, DESPAIR, STRESS, AND MUTILATION This is Cornelius—also known as r10033. He was born on May 16, 2010, at the Wisconsin National Primate Research Center (WNPRC)—part of the University of Wisconsin– Madison (UW-Madison). Raised without his mother, he was frequently caged alone and used in experiments that left him traumatized and depressed—sitting constantly hunched over or with his face pressed against the cage bars, having lost the will to live. In 2020, UW-Madison took in more than $334 million in taxpayer money from the National Institutes of Health, yet it keeps nearly 2,400 monkeys in barren steel cages in windowless rooms where they are neglected, driven mad by extreme long-term confinement, and attacked by their stressed cagemates. “This monkey is embodying, through his posture, and through his gaze, severe depression to the point of despair. … That this animal has been allowed to continue in this state is indicative of extreme neglect of primate well-being .… This monkey is desperately in need of retirement immediately.” —Barbara J. King, Ph.D., Professor Emerita of Anthropology, William & Mary Please sign the petition now to shut down WNPRC at PETA.org/Monkeys.
