Fauci Faces Bipartisan Congressional Backlash Over Alleged Experiments on Puppies

A group of two dozen members of Congress from both parties are demanding answers from Dr. Anthony Fauci over new allegations that his National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded cruel experiments on puppies, according to the New York Post.

The allegations were addressed in a letter sent to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Fauci’s department, and signed by 24 lawmakers. Leading the group is Congresswoman Nancy Mace (R-S.C.). In the letter, the lawmakers point to “documents obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request by taxpayer watchdog group White Coat Waste Project,” which proved that “NIAID spent $1.68 million in taxpayer funds on drug tests involving 44 beagle puppies” in a lab in Tunisia.

Among the most horrifying claims from the White Coat Waste Project’s reports are alleged experiments involving the dogs being trapped in cages with sandflies so that they would be eaten alive, as well as being injected with parasites that carried diseases. There were also claims that scientists would cut the dogs’ vocal cords so that they couldn’t bark when they were being experimented on.

“The commissioned tests involved injecting and force-feeding the puppies an experimental drug for several weeks, before killing and dissecting them,” the letter from Congress continued. In reference to the deliberate measures that were taken to make sure the dogs couldn’t bark, the lawmakers said that “this cruel procedure…seems to have been performed so that experimenters would not have to listen to the pained cries of the beagle puppies. This is a reprehensible misuse of taxpayer funds.”

These latest allegations represent the latest headache for Fauci, who is facing increased scrutiny from Congress. Fauci has also had to deal with recent confirmation from the NIH that gain-of-function funding was, in fact, provided to Chinese experiments dealing with strains of the coronavirus, which indicates that the ongoing pandemic may have indeed been man-made after all.
