Pepper, 2002


Date of birth: 1970.

Pepper was born at a Merck, Sharp & Dohme laboratory and spent 7 years at the Buckshire Corporation before arriving at LEMSIP (Laboratory for Experimental Research and Surgery in Primates at NYU). She was sent to this lab when she became too big to control. Pepper spent a total of 27 years in research. She was subjected to 307 knockdowns, 36 punch liver biopsies, 1 open wedge liver biopsy, 6 cervical biopsies, 10 lymph node biopsies and 4 bone marrow biopsies. Plagued by fear and anxiety, she will still rather starve herself than face an unpleasant situation.
