Rescue Center Opposes Monkeys in Movies
April Truitt’s message to Hollywood heavyweight Cameron Crowe was succinct: Quit monkeying around with primates in movies. Truitt, who is the executive director of the Nicholasville-based Primate Rescue Center, teamed up with the North American Primate Sanctuary Alliance and sent a letter to the Hollywood director asking him not to use monkeys or any other primate in movies. Crowe’s movie “We Bought a Zoo” is scheduled to hit theaters Dec. 23.
