About three dozen demonstrators held signs showing monkeys strapped into restraining chairs or covered with bloody wounds, as they yelled slogans toward a fenced, two-story white building in a warehouse section of Doral.

As a woman emerged from the building, the protesters surged toward her, shouting, "Shame! Shame! Animal abuser!" Six police officers waved them back and formed a wall in front of her until she got into her vehicle and drove away.

The confrontation Wednesday in front of a company called Primate Products was typical of tactics used by South Florida Smash HLS, an animal rights group engaged in a personal � and often effective � campaign to shut down the trade in live monkeys for scientific research.
