Abstract : A collar and chain procedure for transporting Macaca mulatta from living cages to pillory neck plate type restraint chairs, is described. The relative merits of this procedure are discussed in comparison with standard handling techniques. The application of this procedure was demonstrated with 14 Macaca mulatta (7 males and 7 females) ranging in weight from 3.4 to 6.6 kilograms. (Author)
