U.S. infecting and killing monkeys and other animals with CHEMICAL weapons in Brit labs

Research included monkeys, pigs, rabbits and mice being infected with viruses, and chemical and biological weapons. A total of 50,000 animals were killed at the labs between 2010 -2017.

SEAN RAYMENT: ‘The U.S. Pentagon has funded hundreds of tests since 2012 involving monkeys, pigs, rabbits and mice being infected with viruses, and chemical and biological weapons.
