STOP animalabuse in #Kenya !! The BUAV has launched its latest investigation Captive Cruelty, which reveals the terrible suffering inflicted on the wild baboons of Kenya; from their cruel capture in the wild to their imprisonment and use in research at the Institute of Primate Research (IPR) in Nairobi. Kept in unacceptable conditions, that seriously compromise their welfare and breach international guidelines, the baboons are subjected to disturbing experiments, involving researchers from countries including the UK and USA.
Legislation in Kenya relating to animal experiments is outdated and hopelessly inadequate. Captive Cruelty reveals the harrowing and pitiful conditions in which wild baboons were held at IPR. Many were housed on their own in small, barren metal cages. Some individuals suffered this solitary confinement for years, resulting in disturbed abnormal behavior such as circling.
