Advocates Disrupt Dr. Laurie Glimcher Over NY Blood Center Chimp Abandonment Crisis
(VIDEO) One minute after Dr. Laurie Glimcher began speaking at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia, animal rights advocates launched out of their seats to disrupt - and ruin - her presentation. Glimcher, who served on the board of the New York Blood Center when the organization decided to abandon 66 chimpanzees on islands in Liberia, has refused to address the crisis since advocates approached her in mid-2015.
