Lab chimps freed after 30 years

This heart-warming video depicts the relase of laboratory chimpanzees after 3 decades of being locked away.


Like prisoners walking out from 3 decades behind bars, a group of chimpanzees step blinking into the daylight. this is the very first time they have felt grass below their feet and breathed fresh air in thirty years.


Some of the chimps were born in captivity however most were removed from African jungles as babies and flown to Europe, where they were imprisoned in metal laboratory cages to be utilized in a  series of experiments.


Their ordeal finally came to an end when thirty eight of the chimps were let free, into a European sanctuary  referred to as Gut Aiderbichl, giving them the opportunity to feel the nourishing contact of their fellow chimps ater having endured years of being separated by bars and bullet-proof glass.
