FBI Investigated PETA Over Alleged Plan to Launch Anthrax Threat

The FBI began investigating the animal-rights group PETA in the late 1990s after agents were told volunteers planned an anthrax attack, the New York Post reports.

Documents obtained by PETA show the FBI was told the group planned to release anthrax at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases in Washington D.C.

“I was bowled over by it,” PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said. “It was such a disappointment. I don’t know if someone just hated us, but it’s Alice in Wonderland. It’s total fantasy.”

The FBI declined to comment.
