Published by PETA.

Victory Update: Following a year of vigorous campaigning, PETA has learned that government officials have grounded plans for a cruel and ineffective radiation experiment on monkeys. Learn more about this victory for monkeys.

The price is wrong. That’s the message that PETA pal Bob Barker sent to NASA chief Charles Bolden in a letter today urging him to call off the ridiculous plan to blast dozens of squirrel monkeys with a massive dose of radiation before locking in steel cages for life.

Writes the lovely Mr. Barker, “These scientifically invalid experiments squander $1.75 million of taxpayers’ money and cost animals their health and freedom, so the price isn’t right on any count.”

Barker joins Sir Paul McCartney, Alicia Silverstone, the European Space Agency, former NASA astronauts, and former NASA employees, in speaking out against NASA’s cruel, pointless animal experiment. Let’s join them!
