Surprise! Surprise! Surprise! NBC affiliate WBBH says that county investigators found no evidence of wrong doing on the part of monkey farms located in Hendry County, Florida. The farms were the subject of complaints filed by the animal rights group PETA (People for the Extortion Torture and Abuse of human beings) in which the group alleged that the activities taking place at Primate Products and Mannheimer plants did not qualify them as agriculture establishments as per Hendry County zoning rules.
The USDA is conducing a separate investigation into alleged animal abuse resulting from a video released by PETA about the monkey farms. So far, the federal agency found eight violations on Primate Products property in which many of them were corrected. Henry County administrator Charles Chapman, however, states that during their inspections there was nothing they saw that resembled what was depicted on PETA’s video footage.
Animal rights activists, however, were outraged and disagreed with the inspection results. One campaigner accused the country of giving Primate Products and Mannheimer plenty of time to clean up before County inspectors arrived. Has-been journalist Jane Velez-Mitchell says It’s see no evil, hear no evil politics. It’s backroom old boy school politics in the worst order and PETA activists vow they will carry on.
Henry County, Florida is home to a number of farms who raise animals to use in laboratory experiments. By undermining and shutting down animal farms laboratory tests where animals are needed can’t be conducted. This, in turn, hinders the development of life-saving therapies and medicines and ultimately results in human deaths. Consequently, PETA and fellow animal rights activists helped make it happen since they hate humans to the point where they see humans (except themselves) as a cancer that need to be extracted from the planet by any means necessary.
