Tattooed in black ink across her chest, the numbers 1005158 only became more visible as her hair fell out in patches, likely as a result of the stress that she endured at Primate Products, Inc. (PPI), a notorious facility that imports and warehouses primates before selling them to laboratories. A PETA eyewitness gave Loretta a name, likely the first act of compassion she’d ever been shown.
A team of U.S. Department of Agriculture inspectors confirmed PETA’s findings, citing PPI for at least 25 violations of nine animal-welfare regulations and opening an investigation of the facility. Three years later, that investigation is still ongoing.
So where is Loretta today? It’s time that PPI released information about her whereabouts. Please join our efforts to find her.
Thank you for your compassion for animals.
