Michael

In honor of Michael, a strong, handsome pigtail macaque who was shuffled from place to place until he finally came into his own as the alpha male of a group of other pigtails. It’s as good a life as a monkey can get in a research institution – but then it was all snatched away. Michael was sold to the CDC, caged alone and destined for cruel experimentation. He died of his own accord before that could happen. Good for you, Michael. I’m only sorry that you had to die alone in a cold steel cage, instead of in the company of other monkeys.
