Fate of 1,250 monkeys in central Israel remains uncertain

When the New Year rolls around next week, some 1,250 monkeys in a central Israel farm may be at risk of starving to death or decaying in their own filth, activists warn.

Two years ago, the Monkey Rescue organization purchased the rights to the remaining inhabitants of the controversial Mazor Farm (BFC Monkeys Breeding Farm Ltd.) in an attempt to save the animals from potential experimentation abroad. As funding for the monkeys expires this weekend, the group’s leaders are calling upon the government to step in and fulfill promises they say officials made prior to the purchase.
