UK refuses to stop import of Mauritian macaques

Published

on

The UK government has refused to align with an EU plan to halt imports of the offspring of Mauritius wild-caught macaque monkeys for medical research.

This has prompted claims that the UK is complicit in a “cruel” trade in wild animals that risks sparking and spreading new diseases, UK’s Independent newspaper reported.

More than 1,140 long-tailed macaques were imported from Mauritius last year for research.
