White Coat Waste Project (WCW) just exposed how the nation’s top taxpayer-funded monkey abusers have been violating a federal law requiring that they publicly disclose the costs of their cruel and wasteful experiments.

During its investigation, WCW unearthed a little-known video of the noncompliant primate experiments at Emory University’s Yerkes National Primate Research Center (NPRC). Here’s how Uncle Sam $16 million of your tax dollars:

This ongoing project has received over $16 million from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to date and involves:

  • locking monkeys alone in tiny cages
  • drilling holes into monkeys’ skulls
  • screwing in head-restraining devices
  • implanting electrodes into the monkeys’ brains
  • injecting toxins that destroy monkeys’ brains and cause them to lose control of their limbs, mouths and other body parts.

Altogether, Yerkes NPRC imprisons over 4,000 primates of different species for use in needless experiments opposed by most Americans. Experts agree that primate experiments are incredibly wasteful, and even NIH Director Francis Collins recently highlighted the ineffectiveness of animal testing.

Is this how you want your money spent?

Take a moment to write your Congress members and urge them to cut funding for all painful primate testing at the NIH.
