Plum Island Is Now For Sale!

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

There has been a lot of speculation if the Montauk Monster or “related” creatures have originated from Plum Island.  For those who are not familiar with Plum Island, it’s a small island located approximately two miles off the coast of eastern Long Island where deadliest of animal diseases are currently being tested.

With theories running wild as to “what really goes on there”, it seems odd that the federal government is currently looking to sell Plum Island to a private company or owner.  The research that is being conducted on Plum Island will continue in Manhattan, Kansas.

The big question: Do you think the series of creatures (and recent dead body!) that washed up in the past two years have influenced the decision to sell?  Perhaps the new facility in Kansas is better suited for this type of research.  Either way, it’s only been a short period of time since the first Montauk Monster washed up and brought attention to the animal testing facility.  What are your thoughts? via Animal New York
