It sounds like something from a Hollywood science fiction film: a race that is half human, half ape.
But leading scientists are today demanding tough new rules to prevent the nightmare scenario becoming a reality.
In a hard-hitting report, they warn that research is close to pushing ethical boundaries and that extreme attempts to give laboratory animals human attributes must be banned.
While talking chimpanzees and gun-toting gorillas are currently confined to movies, the academics say the dangers of disturbing animal-human experiments are real.
He added: We are trying to get this out in the open before anything has happened.

Re: above. Bummer! The trailer has been pulled...
He has been one of my favorite actors since I was a kid, I loved those cheesy sci-fi movies like Soylant Green that my dad took me to back then.
The original Planet 1968 wasnt bad, it had a good theme, it had good actors, it had some good lines, it had thought provoking sci-fi imagination themes like :"Ape was made in God's image unlike the destructive Animal Man " was a great one, and the shocker visual of him on the beach reacting to the Liberty Statue is a classic. The following sequels were all crap.
But heck, I was a kid in the 1970s and in NYC around 1974 I went to see an all day showing of all five Planet movies in a row. Those were the 1970s 'Creature Feature/Chiller theater/Fright Night" days in NYC, a great time to be a kid.
Comparing black people to apes is universally frowned upon as racist in modern society. The basis for this goes back to the turn of the last century, when Darwin's theory began to be generally accepted, white supremacists borrowed it to suggest that blacks were less evolved.
I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt, and assuming you know this, but making that suggestion about the President and his family (even in jest) is the kind of thing the mainstream media uses to portray the members of this website as angry, ignorant rednecks. They only need a couple of such examples out of every million or so posts, and, believe me, they have people looking for them.
As I am sure you are aware, LameStream media will always slam us, either using out of context or even outright lies.
We are in the middle of a war for the soul of America, and te Liberals/commies know the facts do not support them, history does not support them. Only Lame Stream Presstitutes support them.
Expect to be called all sorts of things. They really can’t hurt us with their lies, thanks to the Internet and talk radio.
Is that “ManPig”, the first step toward the famous “ManBearPig”?
