Please ask your congressman to vote against the Captive Primate Safety Act. #captiveprimatesafetyact
A newly introduced bill called theย #CaptivePrimateSafetyAct ย (CPSA), thatโ€™s supported by Animal Welfare Institute (@awionline ), addresses the cruel and dangerous problem of pet primate ownership in the #UnitedStates . Sponsored by Reps.ย @repblumenauer (D-OR) and @repbrianfitz (R-PA), this bill would amend the #LaceyAct to prohibit interstate commerce in nonhuman primates (including #apes , #monkeys , #lemurs , and #lorises ) for the exotic #pettrade .๐Ÿ™๐Ÿต - โ€œThe suffering pet primates endure is alarming,โ€ said Cathy Liss, President of AWI in a statement. โ€œThey are often forcibly removed from their mothers soon after birth, spend their lives isolated in small cages and endure unnecessary, painful procedures such as tooth extraction. The Captive Primate Safety Act is urgently needed to prevent these animals from entering the inhumane interstate pet trade.โ€ - Conservative estimates suggest that there are at least 15,000 primates kept as pets in the United States. ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿต๐Ÿšซ #EndThePetTrade - - READ MORE: ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ‘‰WorldAnimalNews.com @worldanimalnews_ @peace_4animals #WorldAnimalNews
I spoke on Capitol Hill yesterday about The Captive Primate Safety Act! It was so great to talk to so many folks on the Hill so interested in this issue! Staffers were taking notes, asking intelligent questions and asked for my PP to be emailed to them! Animal Welfare Institute organized the briefing, and also in attendance -- HSUS,ASPCA, and Born Free. Next time we hope to include NAPSA and GFAS--let's make this happen!! #CaptivePrimateSafetyAct
