"You Win" were two of UCLA vivisector Dario Ringach's final words to<br><br>
The North American Animal Liberation Press Office (NAALPO) via<br><br>
electronic communication, evidently in response to unrelenting animal<br><br>
activists.<br><br>
...<br><br>
According to UCLAPrimateFreedom.com, Ringach's experiments will<br><br>
advance understanding of how monkeys process what they see, and also<br><br>
that he has been approved to kill 30 macaque monkeys for vision<br><br>
experiments, where each moneky is first paralyzed, then used for a<br><br>
single session that lasts up to 120 hours, and finally killed.<br><br><br><br>
"While we do not know at this time whether Ringach made his decision<br><br>
after examining his conscience and deciding to do the right thing<br><br>
because it's the right thing, or whether he made the decision out of<br><br>
concern for his own safety and that of his family. The animals who<br><br>
will be spared his abuse don't care why he stopped his atrocities,<br><br>
only that he has stopped," Vlasak said.<br><br><br><br>

He may have stopped 'for now', to get people off his back, but who's to say he won't start again possibly somewhere else after the 'fuss' has died down.

This story recently showed up on <a href="http://slashdot.org" target="_blank">slashdot</a>. If anyone is interested in the geek community's perspective of this you can read the <a href="http://science.slashdot.org/comments.pl?threshold=5&mode=thread&commentsort=0&op=Change&sid=195107" target="_blank">comments</a>. Most of them see this as a bad thing but a few comments understand how vivisection is not taking the animals interests into consideration.

I wondered that too, but <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":up:"> for the reprieve at least.

My guess, and this is totally a guess, is that they get transferred to a different lab that conducts vivisection.

They will be retired and sent to a Undisclosed sanctuary.
