Monkey Business in Florida Sparks Legal Battle with a Crucial Court Hearing This Week!

A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of local citizens who have concerns about a proposed monkey facility in Hendry County, Florida. The facility would house 3,200 monkeys and reportedly sell monkeys for laboratory experimentation. There is a crucial hearing Thursday in Hendry County.
The story below provides key background information. Please watch.

Attorneys for the plaintiffs say they have no idea where these monkeys are coming from and local residents have concerns about everything from Ebola to escapes. The suit charges the facility was approved in violation of Florida’s Sunshine Law and without public hearing. The suit also claims that the county twisted the notion of agriculture in approving the facility. The county claims the suit is without merit and the company Primera says they are in compliance with all local, state and federal regulations. A Florida State Senator, Dwight Bullard, whose district covers Hendry County, has called for a public hearing to no avail.
Here is an events page.

Do NOT to go to court! Instead, meet at 12 noon at the Hendry County Planning & Zoning Dept. at 640 South Main Street, LaBelle, Florida. 33935 to voice your concerns. Journalist Jane Velez-Mitchell, editor of JaneUnChained.com will be conducting on camera interviews at that location as part of an in-depth report on the controversial monkey breeding facility proposal and lawsuit.

  • Dear Jane, please follow the Israeli struggle to free the apes of Mazor Farm in Israel. After years of protest, breeding apes for experiments has been declared illegal. The Farm has been closed, the animals freed and soon to be rehabilitated! It was a great victory, that happened this year. Good luck with your struggle!

  • stop fucking with the monkeys man !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • This facility has to be stopped! Animal testing is inexcusable and is unnecessary due to new medical advancements. Don’t allow this living hell for these defenseless monkeys in Florida.

  • Regardless of the success of the label, the Anecdote workforce has focused their efforts on their solely store which is positioned along Wolvenstraat 15. On the identical time they stock their items of their online retailer along with several multi-level boutiques internationally. ONE: Many people mistake Anecdote for a Scandinavian or French label but they’re proudly from Amsterdam. TWO: Anecdote is a bunch of simple to put on gadgets, all day put on, so cozy you will not need to take them off.

  • Jane, I just barely read of this! I live in California, but I am willing to move to Florida to work with you.
