How uninformed you are. The Chimps at Holloman are no longer experimented on and have not been experimented on for a long time. THey are living out their life as comfortable as possible for the condition they were brought into and the only meds they get are for their health and not for experimental purposes.

The NIH and PETA have articles that speak of these poor animals that have been tested on for way too long.

Quit trying to cover-up for this abuse of helpless animals that will suffer the rest of their lives due to what has been done to them at HAFB, NM and other facilities.

Dumbass, no one has stated these higher primates at Holloman AFB have never been experimented on. However testing on the Holloman primates have not taken place for at least 10 years. Can say much before 2002 as I was not in the local area.

The facilities at Holloman allow the primates free access to an outside exercise area well equiped to provide entertainment and full range of movement. They also have acces to the outside or interior facilty at their chosing. They are examined, feed, and kept in a social environment. As I said before they are left to live out thier lives in as much comfort as they can enjoy.
