Yerkes Chimpanzees All Secure

In contrast to what was announced on the Neal Boortz radio program this morning (5/7/09), there is not a chimpanzee loose from the Yerkes National Primate Research Center.

The Yerkes Research Center takes great precautions to ensure the safety of our animals and the personnel working with them.
