Lab 257 : Government Secret at Plum Island

Lab 257 also known as Building 257
Plum Island is an island in the town of Southold in Suffolk Country, New York in the United States. The Island is situated in Gardiners Bay, east of Orient Point. The Island is the site of the Plum Island Animal Desease Center (PIADC) which was established by the United States Department of Argiculture (UDSA) in 1954.

location of Lab 257 at Plum Island
Lab 257 also known as Building 257 are located at Fort Terry and originally intended to storage for weapons, such as mines. Fort Terry went through a period of activations and deactivations through World War II until the U.S Army Chemical Corps took over the facility for use in animal biological warfare research. It is revealed that the lab is home to may of the deadliest germs known to man such as African swine fever, Rift Valley fever, anthrax, mad cow disease, foot-and-mouth disease, purpose to protect the nation's food supply against foreign animal viruses and agroterrorism, and most of the facility's directors over the years had extensive backgrounds in military boiwarfare research and development. The Lab is being one of the most lethal, and unsafe, bio-warfare facilities in the U.S

Montauk Monster
In 2008 a corpse of the strange-looking "Montauk Monster" washed ashore in Montauk, New York. The media speculated it could have been a genetic experiment that somehow escaped from Plum Island. Jesse Venttura conspiracy theory promoter hyped up Plum Island on his television show as some biological weapons, but that also poses an imminent threat to the region should any of these pathogenic compounds be released accidentally.

In 2010 a human body had washed ashore on plum Island. The body were discovered to be alleged mutated human body of 6 feet tall with large build and very long fingers.

Lyme Disease
Many believe that both Lyme Disease, West Nile Virus, and Dutch Duck Plague, new virus variants that are quite suitable to biowarfare, originated and escaped from Plum Island when the experimental viruses were accidentally released from the facility. Some believe that the viruses were released on purpose in order to test effectiveness on the local population. The USDA writes off as coincidence that the first appearance (1978) of Lyme disease appeared a mere 13 miles northeast of the facility, in Lyme, Connecticut, the town that gave the disease its name. The first man infected by Lyme Disease was quick to point the finger at the nearby Plum Island facility. What is known, is that Plum Island conducted outdoor experiments on ticks and fleas in an effort to create a animal hosted virus that could be spread to humans. In addition, the USDA has also failed to explain the mysterious appearance of West Nile virus in Long Island and New York City in 1999.
