Tribe Member Battles Monkey Farm in Florida

(CN) - A Seminole tribe member requested an injunction to shut down a primate research facility in rural Florida, claiming it runs an unethical animal-tissue harvesting operation and puts his sacred lands at risk of being infested with "wild, potentially disease bearing monkeys."

In Hendry County Court, Samuel Tommie claims the company known as Primate Products is illegally operating a monkey research center that houses animals in deplorable settings while denying "sick and injured monkeys adequate veterinary care."
