Atlanta – Please see the next assertion from PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo concerning the choice by Emory College to rename campus areas and professorships honoring Robert Yerkes:
A primate laboratory by any identify is unacceptable. Whereas Emory officers are dumping the Yerkes identify from campus, they need to additionally shut down the continuing atrocity he pioneered—the Yerkes Nationwide Primate Analysis Heart. Caging, reducing up, and killing primates is vile and unscientific and must be consigned to historical past, together with Robert Yerkes’ racism.
