Animal abuse

August 30, 2008

APES should no longer be used for entertainment [" 'Every Which Way but Abuse' Should Be Motto," by Rachel Abramowitz, Aug. 27]. To get chimpanzees to perform, trainers often beat them into submission; that is no way to treat animals, through violence and fear.

With computer-generated images already available, the use of live animals in front of the camera should end.

THIS article made me cry. It's hard to imagine anyone being so cruel as to viciously beat a young animal with pipes and broom handles for the sole purpose of making that animal perform tricks for a movie. These so-called trainers must be prosecuted for animal abuse.
