We were informed that a laboratory in France wanted to dispose of a crab-eating macaque that they had been using for experimentation. His name was Pozzi.
The weather during the journey was not good, with fog, sleet and snow, but the closed circuit TV system in our special ambulance, kindly donated by Ring Automotive Ltd enabled us to monitor Pozzi continuously whilst we were driving.
This meant we did not have to keep stopping and it shortened the journey time considerably. This was good for all of us.
Pozzi had spent eighteen years as a laboratory animal and he had a number of physical problems. He lived for a further eighteen months however at our sanctuary and these were no doubt the best months of his life.
