Nexus

In memory of Nexus rhesus macaque – a sweet girl who lived 3 hard, tough years. Taken from her mother in the first month of life, she lived the next two years alone in a cage; no family, no friends. In her second year of life she was given a chance of returning to her family and making new friends. Those who thought her life mattered tried desperately to integrate her back into her family group. Because of the years of social deprivation, she was left with no social skills and the group just didn’t understand her; they refused her entry. She endured many battles, many lost. She was removed and sent back into a cage. She was killed within a year for biomedical research. No creature should have to suffer in this way. Thank you Tabasco and Quad for your acceptance of Nexus – your care mattered.
