Yet another example of man's disgusting exploitation of animals! Animal experimentation is barbaric not too mention incredibly obsolete in today's world. Instead of eating intelligent primates for food, how about people start curbing their own "booming" population, if food is scarce! Besides, meat isn't the only or even the best source of protein available.

It's only disgusting because we are not accustomed to eating that type of meat on a weekly or daily basis. Alaskan natives eat seal meat or whale, and I'm sure many people would be opposed to eating a creature they view as having a good deal of intelligence, but to the Alaskans, without the meat, their survival would be placed in jeopardy.

I hope no one takes this as a personal insult, but unless you're going to complain about the killing of ALL animals for food, you really can't complain about killing a monkey for food.
Are monkies put on a pedastal over other animals?
If so, why?
Doesn't quite sound fair to me. So unless you're going to protest the killing of every single animal for food, don't protest this one just because you have a soft spot for monkies.
Man, mainly indigenous tribes, have been eating monkies for a long, long time.

If you're going to think about it that way then what's the big deal with cannibalism? Humans are self aware animals, why don't we eat humans as well as chicken and beef?
^^^^^hmmm....what possible reason could there be...another jump from animals to humans.....meh
Can you even imagine having a very human looking arm connected to a very human looking hand with human looking fingers on your plate. If the meat was already cooked and some unexpected guests came over for dinner they would think that you had cooked a human baby.
^^^^lame....it they came to my house, it would look like steak medallians.
Black people were slaves for a long time, does that make slavery right? There is a long tradition in certain African countries and parts of the Middle East of female genital mutilation. Does the tradition legitimize the practice?
^^^^so we go from eating animals, to eating humans, to slavery, to genital mutilation........bwuahahahahahah
