Israeli buys 1,300 monkeys, saving them from harsh fate

After a 20 year struggle, Mazor Farm (located in Israel) which breeds and exports monkeys for medical experiments, will be shut down.

According to an article written by Amir Shouan
Published: 12.23.14, 21:57 / Israel News:

Ady Gil, an animal rights activist who founded Ady Gil World Conservation after selling American Hi Definition (a video projection screen company that provides big-screen projectors to the Academy Awards, the Grammys and more), has purchased the Mazur Farm monkeys.

What comes next?
According to the article:
“And what now, after the purchase of the monkeys?
Initially, Gil says, the animals will have to remain at the farm until a suitable enclosure is erected for them.
“One thing’s for sure,” he says, “they won’t be in cages. I’m against zoos too.”
The options currently being considered by Monkey Rescue include moving the macaques to Havat Bodedim in the south of Israel
or expanding the Ben Shemen Monkey Park.
