Bethesda, Md. – Tomorrow, a PETA mobile billboard blasting the cries of monkeys imprisoned in National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) laboratories and screening video footage of traumatized monkeys inside NIH experimenter Elisabeth Murray’s laboratory will alert her neighbors to the gruesome reality of her day job. The billboard will also circle NIH Director Francis Collins’ neighborhood and the NIH building to urge officials to pull the plug on Murray’s horrific experiments.

When:    Saturday, July 31, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.

Where:    Elisabeth Murray’s neighborhood; NIH Director Francis Collins’ neighborhood; and the nearby NIH campus in Bethesda

Murray cuts into monkeys’ heads and injects toxins into their brains, surgically implants head posts directly into their skulls to keep their heads stock-still for hours, deprives them of food and water to force them to cooperate, and terrorizes them with realistic-looking snakes and spiders. And she hasn’t produced a single treatment or cure for humans.
