U.S. Army Ends Monkey Testing at APG!

tantalus monkey animal testing

According to a PETA press release, the U.S. Army has agreed to discontinue monkey testing at the Aberdeen Proving Ground’s (APG) chemical casualty training courses.

Instead of abusing terrified monkeys, Aberdeen—the only Army base in the country that uses animals for this training—will now use human patient simulators, just as every other military facility already does. The move follows months of vigorous campaigning by PETA.

PETA’s campaign against the barbaric chemical casualty training where monkeys were routinely injected with drug overdoses in order to recreate the effects of a nerve agent. Supporters of this effort included veterans, physicians, active service members, and actor Woody Harrelson.
