U.S. Army Plans to Poison Monkeys on September 12 - Act Now!

Your help is urgently needed (https://secure.peta.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=3813&autologin=true&c=causesarmyex0911) to help stop the U.S. Army from conducting a cruel training exercise that involves injecting vervet monkeys with a drug overdose to crudely recreate the effects of a nerve agent attack. The monkeys suffer from uncontrollable twitching, seizures, and vomiting, and some even stop breathing.

Please click here (https://secure.peta.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=3813&autologin=true&c=causesarmyex0911) to take action now to help stop the next scheduled training exercise on Monday, September 12.

Instead of tormenting animals, other military and civilian training programs around the world use sophisticated human patient simulators that can be programmed to mimic the human response to a nerve agent attack. Not only are the Army's monkey laboratories incredibly cruel and ineffective, they also clearly violate Department of Defense policies that prohibit harming primates for training purposes and require that alternatives to the use of animals be used when available.

Please immediately contact (https://secure.peta.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=3813&autologin=true&c=causesarmyex0911) Army officials and urge them to spare monkeys from this cruel laboratory and instead use the modern non-animal training methods that are widely available. Again, please take action now (https://secure.peta.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=3813&autologin=true&c=causesarmyex0911) to help stop the next scheduled training exercise on Monday, September 12.

Thank you for all that you are doing to help animals!

Sincerely,
