Captive Primate Safety Act passes House

The House of Representatives approved the Captive Primate Safety Act after a recent attack in Connecticut. The L.A. Unleashed Blog reports that the house sponsor of the bill, Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D.Ore) stated that the bill would protect communities and ensure welfare of animals:
"The horrific chimpanzee attack in Connecticut last week brought a renewed urgency to this issue and I am pleased with today's long overdue passage of this bill. Primates are wild animals and should not be regularly transported around the United States and integrated into our communities or our households. Today we have taken an important step toward the welfare of humans and animals."
The Senate is expected to take up companion legislation this year. The New York Times ran an excellent editorial entitled Primates Aren't Pets that is worth reading. Read more at the following links:
