PEOPLEPets.com is reporting that Kristin Bauer, best known for her role as Pam on HBO's True Blood, has been writing letters to the National Institute of Health to protest the transfer of 200 chimpanzees from New Mexico to a Texas research facility. The NIH, however, has responded that the animals are critical to advances in human health.

If the plan for transfer goes through, the chimpanzees will be relocated some time in 2011. For now, Congress continues to debate whether legislation is needed to shut down federal chimpanzee testing for good.
