The state of Texas continues to grow and grow as time passes.
The Lone Star state is attracting a growing number of individuals for a multitude of reasons. Whether it’s for family or business purposes, there is no doubt that Texas will welcome new residents each day in 2024. As the population continues to grow, there is a pressing need for additional space to accommodate both individuals and industries.
In Brazoria County, Texas, there is a secluded area where residents have expressed their concerns about a facility that is planning to house almost 43,000 primates.
Texas Residents Speak Out Against Monkey Facility
The Texan reported that the center’s origin dates back to 2022, when Charles River Laboratories purchased 538 acres of land. The purpose was to provide a dedicated space for 43,000 monkeys, which would be utilized for biotechnology and pharmaceutical experiments.
Residents were quick to express their discontent to government officials when they discovered that the area was already in the process of being developed. Cody Vasut (R-Angleton) explained that there were several reasons why the location wasn’t suitable for such a facility.
According to The Texan, additional concerns have emerged regarding the potential threat of flooding in the area, which could result in the spread of monkey excrement and other harmful substances to neighboring properties. As a result, the testing facility is currently facing uncertainty, with possible modifications being considered to address these concerns, or even the potential relocation of the facility to another location.
More information will be reported as it becomes available since this is a developing story.
