Mazor monkey farm activity to be limited

Published: 01.05.13, 18:02 / Israel News

Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein approved an initiative by Environmental Protection Minister Gilad Erdan to limit the Mazor Farm's activity to medical research in Israel only. This will lead to a ban on the import of monkeys to the farm for reproduction purposes as well as their export overseas.

 

Minister Erdan welcomed the decision and said, "The halt of monkey trade significantly strengthens protection of animals. Animal trade for financial gain is wrong." (Erez Erlichman)
