Lab Chimps See Sunlight For The First Time (VIDEO)




If this doesn't make your eyes mist up a little, there might be something wrong with you.

RTL, a German television station, provided this tearjerking footage of lab chimps taking their first steps of freedom outdoors and into the sun.

It's in German, but we can gather that this was the first time the animals had ever been let loose in natural daylight.

Feel-good footage aside, the use of chimps in research has long been a hot-button issue.

3. I admit I did not watch this video, but I may have seen it in the past.
I did see something like this not too long ago, and cried like I did when my mother died.

The things our society have done to our closest animal relatives, not to mention other life forms, makes me too sad for words.
