Save Felix the Monkey


Felix is a primate who is currently incarcerated inside Oxford University and will be used in a series of experiments into brain function. Felix was featured in the BBC2 documentary, 'Monkeys, Rats and Me', shown in November 2006.

Imagine being condemned to live your whole life behind bars in a cage that is barely big enough to hold you. Imagine, never being able to see beyond the bars into the natural world that is your birthright, never breathe fresh air, never interact and form relationships with your own kind. In this life, you will be 'trained' to do tricks for a reward, and will be punished if you fail; you will have electrodes implanted deep into your brain through your skull, you will experience years of abuse and then at the end of that abuse you will be put to death. This is the fate that awaits Felix.

Perversely his tormentors have given him the name 'Felix' which in Latin means happy. It is a sick ‘in joke’ by Oxford University vivisectors, which tells us a great deal about the mind of a vivisector.The Home Office licence granted for the long-term experiments on Felix allows the infliction of severe/substantial suffering.

Felix is a bright sentient individual whose life belongs to him and no one else. Please sign the petition and help us in our fight to free Felix.
