New FootageÂ shot by a BUAVÂ (British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection) undercover investigatorÂ has revealedÂ the misery of Macaque monkeys keptÂ in appalling conditions in the Spanish town ofÂ Camarles,Â destined for laboratories in Europe.
The BUAVdescribe the primates horrendousÂ facilityÂ as a ‘GuantÃ¡namo-style prison’, they go on to say,Â ’animals atÂ Camarles are kept in bare concrete and metal cages under the searing Spanish sun before being sent to European laboratories to end their lives undergoing painful experiments.’
The investigation also showed that sadly the use of primates inÂ European labs is soaring. England is supposed to be a nation of animal lovers yet we have the second highest use of primates for testing (currently around 3,000) pipped by France.
