SCARED TO DEATH: The U.S. Government Funded ‘Monkey Freight’ Experiments

NIH scientist Elizabeth Murray carves out a section of a monkey’s skull, injects toxins into the brain, suctions out portions of it or burns them, causing permanent and traumatic damage.

PETA: ‘She saws open her victims’ heads, injects toxins, and vacuums out parts of their brains. Sometimes she burns them instead. She sews them back up and places them in a small black box that probably reeks of the previous victim’s fear. She then deliberately provokes their worst fears, just to see how they’ll react. When she’s through, she kills them.

She’s Elisabeth Murray, and she calls herself a scientist. Her victims are monkeys. She gets millions of your tax dollars to keep repeating this horror. PETA has obtained 43 hours of never-before-seen video of Murray’s twisted “emotional responsiveness” tests on dozens of monkeys at a National Institutes of Health (NIH) laboratory in Bethesda, Maryland. The videos were recorded between February 2016 and November 2017…

Murray carves out a section of a monkey’s skull, injects toxins into the brain, suctions out portions of it or burns them, causing permanent and traumatic damage.The monkeys are then put all alone in a small metal cage, which is held inside a larger box painted black. A guillotine-like door at the front of the cage is suddenly raised, revealing something inherently scary to monkeys—a snake or a spider. Murray’s snakes and spiders are artificial but realistic-looking, and some can move or even jump.

Because monkeys, like all primates, innately fear snakes, some respond defensively—freezing or looking or turning away. Others shake their cage. Some grimace or smack their lips—signs of submission in the face of a threat. The monkeys endure this same torture repeatedly. When Murray has finished with them, they may be killed or recycled into other experiments, to be further tormented…

Murray’s experiments have raked in tens of millions of taxpayer dollars—more than $36 million in the past 13 years alone. The footage obtained by PETA is from an NIH project called “Neural Substrates of Reward Processing and Emotion.” Murray has received $16.4 million for this project since 2007. NIH throws taxpayer money at Murray’s laboratory hand over fist. But not one treatment or cure for humans has come out of it in 30 years’. SOURCE…
