VICTORY: Following an intensive yearlong PETA campaign, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has announced that it’s ending the cruel psychological experiments on baby monkeys conducted by Stephen Suomi, who led this horrendous project at NIH for more than 30 years. His laboratory is being closed down, and he will no longer be involved in any experiments on animals:
Shocking videos obtained by PETA show the National Institutes of Health (NIH) terrorizing baby monkeys it has intentionally bred to be mentally ill, wasting more than $30 million in taxpayer money.
See the shocking facts here:
Each year, dozens of monkeys are born at this NIH facility, many intentionally bred to be prone to mental illness. Half of the monkeys born each year are torn away from their mothers within hours of birth and never returned. Some infants are given a cloth-covered bottle as a “surrogate” mother. These motherless infants are more likely to suffer from severe anxiety, aggression, depression, diarrhea, hair loss, and other physical and mental illnesses as well as engaging in self-destructive behavior such as biting themselves and pulling out their own hair.
The monkeys undergo years of terrifying and often painful experiments to worsen their symptoms of mental illness and test the severity of their psychological trauma. Currently, approximately 200 young monkeys are involved in the experiments.
You can help these monkeys now:
PETA has obtained documents, hundreds of photographs, and more than 500 hours of never-before-seen high-definition video footage taken inside this NIH facility between 2009 and 2012 detailing the psychological abuse of baby monkeys in disgustingly cruel and archaic experiments.
The videos and photographs depict only a portion of the torment that these animals endure.
Many of the monkeys are killed before the age of 8.
