Bert is 19, and Gilligan is 28. For years, they’ve been forcibly strapped to dogs who then race around a track in events to entertain human spectators. Both monkeys were likely taken from their mothers shortly after birth. They’re apparently missing their teeth, which were likely pulled so that they wouldn’t bite tourists when forced to pose for photos. These sensitive, intelligent animals don’t deserve such a stressful and painful life!
