For years, the White Coat Waste Project (WCW) has been working to find, expose and defund dangerous and cruel maximum pain animal experiments at the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) controversial Rocky Mountain Laboratory (RML) in Montana. RML is a bioagent superlab that infects animals with highly contagious and deadly viruses like Ebola, Lassa, Nipah, and even the plague.
Our investigations have uncovered how RML gain-of-function experimenters infect primates shipped from Monkey Island with deadly viruses like Ebola, how it bought bats from a shady roadside zoo to abuse in coronavirus experiments and how it’s currently working with Wuhan lab partner EcoHealth Alliance to import hundreds of bats from Asia for treacherous virus experiments.
In 2022, we filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the NIH for refusing to release records to WCW about RML’s maximum pain experiments.
Now, as first reported by the Daily Mail, our ongoing lawsuit has pried free never-before-seen photos and videos of RML’s taxpayer-funded animal experiments.
In these photos and videos from inside RML, primates were being intentionally infected with COVID and an Ebola-like hemorrhagic fever that causes bleeding and organ failure:
These photos and videos from inside RML show piglets being infected with and suffering from Ebola infections:
WCW was represented in the successful FOIA case by the Law Office of Matthew Strugar.
RML is currently expanding its animal testing labs using $125 million of taxpayers’ money distributed by Congress as COVID relief funding.
Is this how you want your money spent?
Fortunately, following our exposés, Montana Congressman Matt Rosendale (R-MT) successfully passed an amendment to the NIH’s 2024 spending bill to defund some of RML’s most dangerous animal experiments and Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) demanded answers from RML and NIH.
Our FOIA lawsuit, lobbying, and investigation into RML are all ongoing and we’ll keep you posted on new developments.
