Chimpanzee Situation is "Unimaginably Awful"


This is Harper in June 2005 while at OSU. Before being sent to PPI, he and Emma played outdoors daily. (picture on left by LG 2005)


Since early September Harper and Emma have been locked indoors in a tiny, dark, rat and roach infested enclosure. (picture on right by KB October 18, 2006)


Yesterday, October 22, was the first time they were outdoors in 6 weeks. They were extremely happy and it made going back into their filthy enclosure more tolerable. Today they were running and playing outdoors all day and we can only hope that they sleep well tonight. They must be moved to a true sanctuary soon so they can begin to forget their horrible ordeal at PPI.

Copy of an email I sent is below, I thought some of you might be interest. Had I seen these pictures first I would have been even MORE pissed-off-sounding.

I had a small hand in helping to raise Harper and Emma as my ex- was the Lab Manager at OSU. Max, Harper and Emma used to play WWF steel-cage wrestling in his baby crib back in the day.

I urge EVERYONE to send an email or snail mail to everyone and anyone involved from OSU in this atrocity.

One last thing: Stephany Harris and Klaree Boose, you guys are AWESOME! If either of you EVER need anything, you call me I will move heaven and earth to help you guys if I can.

Gorilla Haven, Apes, MonkeyWire, Save The Primates

Quotes from Erik Johns' story in Columbus' The Other Paper.
See: www.theotherpaper.com/TOP10-26/10-26_substory1.html
"***" is oplaced before my response.

"Ohio State’s handling of the process looked clumsy and callous..."
***To say the least!

"As part of the chimp transfer, Ohio State sent $250,000 to Primarily Primates to construct a new sanctuary structure specifically for the OSU animals. The authorities in Texas still aren’t sure where that money went."
***Don't feel bad, Texas, neither does OSU and they gave PPI the money! See my next quote.

“We’ve been pretty much out of the information loop down there,” university spokesman Earle Holland said. “We’re pretty much in the dark as far as what the status is.”
*** Are you kidding me?? *I* personally have been crusading to inform all you morons at OSU including William Yonushonis, Karen Holbrook, Dick McGrath and Dick Bigfeather as to what type of conditions were present at PPI. Earle Holland does not like to receive emails as his published OSU email address was not accepting emails, so I was not able to spread my wisdom to him other than leaving a general voice mail at his office. Regardless, not only are you incompetent, now you are now liars.

“We’re sitting on the sidelines.”
***AGAIN, another example of callousness. Instead of stepping in and using OSU's power and prestige to do the right thing. Nice. YAY OSU. Yeah, that WAS sarcasm.

"Holland said Ohio State did nothing wrong in its handling of the situation, but he admits the current situation is unfortunate for both the school and the chimps."
***Yeah, but only because the bad PR is coming back to bite OSU on the ass, otherwise, OSU could not have cared less about these animals. It's actions clearly show that.

I have enjoyed getting the updates and wish they could be daily. I have written letters to the editor of the Columbus Dispatch and the OSU Lantern, and neither has been published. Wonder who got to the editorial staffs?
Please provide updates more often if you can. I do understand that you are busy beyond belief! But these updates are critical to those of us who remain interested in the fate of these chimps and monkey.

Good day!
My 14-year-old sister Megan came bounding into the kitchen wearing her black bikini. I had little time to react before she jumped up and wrapped her arms and legs around me. She squealed loudly in my ear and I had to grab onto the counter to keep from falling over.
… I leaned down over her body and licked along her nipples once gain. I slowly dragged my tongue down her stomach and tickled her sides. She giggled and I laughed too. My sweet baby sis, still so ticklish. My sweet baby sis, who I was about to make love to.
I love lolitas !! and sex :)
Young lolita it is a best !!!

Good day


Mansour Engineering continually improves on completed construction projects. Mansour Engineering team is always eager to participate in post-occupancy evaluations. Mansour Engineering internal management approach is based on the project task force assignment where specific key personnel are assigned as job leaders for each discipline. These leaders are the most experienced and proficient engineers having related experience applicable to the specific project. Project management is a step function which provides a check list of activities that must be reviewed prior to proceeding. Each discipline must complete a check list and an interdisciplinary review to ensure an accurate overall engineering effort. Mansour Engineering’s initial step is to define Mansour Engineering client’s objective with a detailed scope of work and a deliverable project list.

Hello. Often the Internet can see links like [url=http://www.whitehutchinson.com/aboutus/]Buy cialis without prescription[/url] or [url=http://www.rc.umd.edu/bibliographies/]Buy cialis without prescription[/url]. Is it safe to buy in pharmacies such goods?

I apologise, but it not absolutely approaches me.
Absolutely with you it agree. I like this idea, I completely with you agree.
It is simply matchless phrase ;)
I will know, I thank for the help in this question.
I can not participate now in discussion - it is very occupied. I will return - I will necessarily express the opinion on this question.

Does the ideas of departing property shock you? Then take into account taking a number of online college programs to help you build up your confidence. There are also group universities, which permit you to stay residence and drive to university. This will permit you to continue to have time with the family whilst getting an education and learning.

When creating your home business, remain prolonged and get trust that enthusiasm shows up. For many of us, beginning your home company is a time period of trepidation, anxiety and excitement. Often the anxiety overpowers other emotions and can make it difficult for us to keep performing the points we have to do. Get strategies to keep continuing to move forward, even though it's just one infant move every day. This persistence will prize you by transporting you thru nervousness to motivation and accomplishment. [url=http://www.ss12w12ws.info]Ertrg4w7878[/url]
