SAMPLE LETTER

To Whom It Concerns,

I was disappointed to learn that your company/institution has purchased monkeys for use in experiments from Primate Products, Inc., a Florida-based company with a record of shoddy animal care and reckless decisions that have led to animal suffering. There have been a number of serious incidents that suggest substantial problems at Primate Products:

– In July 2009, Primate Products dumped close to 100 owl monkeys that they could not sell at a roadside zoo in Homestead, Florida. Within a week, at least 25 of the monkeys were dead!

– In 2010, disturbing photographs surfaced of monkeys inside Primate Products suffering from horrible wounds and crude surgical mutilations.

– In April 2011, Primate Products was cited by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for leaving monkeys who were still under anesthesia in an enclosure without supervision, and in the hot sun.

– In August 2011, two Florida lawmakers called for an “immediate suspension” of the government’s contracts with Primate Products over $1.3 million awarded them in stimulus money meant to create jobs.

Your business with Primate Products is no secret. Poor employee morale at Primate Products has made the company leakier than an old rusty bucket!

Please, do the right thing and permanently sever your ties with Primate Products.

Thank you for taking the time to read this important message.

is a primate a product
something to sell
we know the answer
all too well
and now it is up
to you
to sever your ties
to primate products,
too
our 98 % shared
DNA kin
deserve so much better
than the misery
they are in
