About the Cover

According to the CDC, tens of thousands of long-tailed macaques were imported into the United States last year—most bound for pharmaceutical or biotech research labs. Inotiv, the nation’s largest commercial primate dealer, relies principally on a Hong Kong–based supplier that maintains captive-breeding facilities in Cambodia. Several representatives of this supplier were charged with multiple felonies in connection with an alleged smuggling ring involving wild-caught macaques “laundered” as captive-bred animals. According to the journal Science, Inotiv is one of two US companies that received monkeys referenced in the federal indictment.
