W ith your help, it’s happening. It all started with Billy. When PETA discovered him, the gentle little monkey was trying desperately to eat food pellets thrown into his filthy cage before they fell through the wire flooring. This was a matter of survival, because nerves in his spine had been cut, paralyzing his arms. He had to push himself on his elbows and try to grab the pellets with his teeth before they were lost forever.
