dc.description.abstractFor over four decades, two secretive facilities in Alice, Texas, have imported, quarantined, bred and shipped to laboratories across the country thousands of rhesus and macaque monkeys. And residents grateful for employment in this rural oil & gas town – the site of a nationwide 1996 monkey Ebola scare – remain protective of the industry, despite persistent community rumors about poor monkey handling, animal escapes and past employees infected with a deadly monkey-borne virus.
