Retired Lab Chimps See Sunlight For The First Time!!

Filed under: Science!RescueChimpanzee

We absolutely hate that any animal is tested on.

Living their lives stuck in cages, being poked and prodded for years and years is the cruelest torture.

That's why it's so so so amazing when those animals get freed!

It's even more ahmayzing when 111 chimps are freed at the same time!

Over the next 12 to 15 months, lab chimps are going to be set free and live out the rest of their lives at Chimp Haven, a gorgeous sanctuary in Keithville, Louisiana.

These chimps get to see the sky and feel grass for the first time!

They can socialize and groom one another with no bars between them too.

It's really beautiful!

Check out the video (above) to see the chimps staring at the sky in absolute awe!

Sherri Shepherd may be busy cracking jokes on The View, but that ain't stopping her from rescuing an ADORBz lab right in time for the holidays!!!

Ashley, which the comedienne plans to rename Chloe, was transferred to New York City by Pooches on the Move from the Baker Bridge Rescue of Charleston, Tenn.

And after being a stray over a year ago that was UNFORTUNATELY found covered in green paint along with her little puppy, the starlet found her on Petfinder.com and picked her up on Saturday.

Dog Stays By Fallen Friend Despite HEAVY Traffic

Sometimes the loyalty of a dog is truly inspiring!

A black Lab stayed by her fallen companion after the poor yellow pooch was struck by a vehicle.

The yellow Lab was mortally wounded and the black Lab never left her friend, despite the heavy traffic flow around her.

A driver placed cones around the dogs to warn other commuters and filmed the brave pooch too.

No one has claimed the black Lab so she is currently up for adoption.

And who wouldn't want to adopt this heroic pup?!

Scientist Using Stem Cells To Grow A Hamburger In His Lab

Filed under: FoodScience!

Burger from the lab

Forget grass-fed beef. How about Petri dish grown beef instead?

Mark Post, a vascular biologist at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands, thinks he'll be able to grow a hamburger in his lab in one year's time by using stem cells harvested from leftover animal material from the slaughterhouse floor.

Sounds kinda gross at first, but if it works, this process could eventually save countless animals' lives

Smoking Chimpanzee Dies At 44

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadChimpanzee

chimp-booie-dead-smoker.jpg

Booie was a chimpanzee living at a Los Angeles animal sanctuary.

He used to have a pretty bad smoking habit too.

He was a chimp that was retired from a research lab and once in the sanctuary was made to quit cigarettes.

Though he did still have one vice: a love of candy!

And he was so intelligent he used to use sign language to try and get people to give him a treat, signing:

"Booie see sweet in pocket."

Cute!!

But now Booie is gone, and the fate of the sanctuary is up in the air now that they've lost their biggest fund raiser, as well as their best friend.

So sad.
