New York Blood Center Abandons Over 60 Chimps, Leaving Them To Die of Starvation

An institution that conducted experiments on approximately 200 chimpanzees and made a promise to provide them with lifelong care has reportedly abandoned the ones who are still alive, leaving them to die of starvation. The New York Blood Center has refused to comment, leaving advocates to speculate that the organization used the distraction of the Ebola epidemic as an opportunity to discreetly extricate itself from its $30,000 monthly commitment.
