38 Primates who were savagely locked away in a medical testing facility in Austria for 30 long years and given HIV and hepatitis by scientists have finally ventured out into the open after a long process of trying to reintegrate them with the outside world. After the chimps were rescued in 1997 the chimps were moved to a farm where keepers tried to reintroduce them to life outside – but the process was not easy as they had spent so much time inside they were confused when shown patches of grass – and repeatedly threw them away.
The world will now sit back and wait to see if the chimps will be inspired by the new release of film Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Let’s hope not, or we’re not sure whether our animal rights morals will be compromised.
