A dispute over the fate of more than 60 chimpanzees in Liberia has been settled, according to the New York Blood Center, which used the animals for biomedical research before leaving them on remote river islands, and the Humane Society of the United States, which has been their primary caretaker since 2015.
"These Research Chimps Were Abandoned on Islands. Then the Battle Over Their Fate Began." is from the May 30, 2017 Animalia section of The Washington Post. It was written by Karin Brulliard and narrated by Sam Scholl.
