Apes are no toys

Published January 28th, 2012

Apen in gevangenschap ontroeren mij zoals geen enkel ander dier. Door hun ogen zie ik hun immens verdriet, hun vriendschap, hun lijdzaamheid, hun onbegrip omtrent hun lot en hun hunkeren naar vrijheid. Het is onvoorstelbaar wat wij hen aandoen. Het maakt mij verdomme zo in en in triestig. We zouden ze allemaal onvoorwaardelijk zo snel mogelijk terug in hun biotoop moeten plaatsen.

Monkeys in captivity move me like no other animal. In their eyes I see their immense grief, their friendship, their patience, their doubts about their fate and their craving for freedom. It is inconceivable what we do to them. It makes me so goddamn sad. Without any exception we should set them all back in their own world as soon as possible.
