Google Earth Plug-in: Gruinard - Anthrax Island

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


In 1942 Gruinard Island was the site of a biological warfare test. Eighty sheep were taken to the island, and a bomb filled with anthrax spores was exploded; the sheep began dying within days. Due to the durability of anthrax spores, decontamination was unsuccessful, and the island was quarantined until 1986, when a determined effort was made to decontaminate the island. It was finally declared safe in 1990.
