Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) is being charged with funding experimental research on dogs that not only infected them with parasites but led to their deaths.
According to a report by the White Coat Waste Project, Dr. Fauci spent $424,000 to commission a study where beagles were given experimental drugs, intentionally infected with flies that carry disease-causing parasites, and then euthanized (killed). The NIAID purchased 28 beagles from the University of Georgia and reportedly allowed them to develop infections for three months so that their blood could be collected.
Kathy Guillermo, PETA’s Vice President, called for the release of the National Institutes of Health’s director, Francis Collins, who oversees Dr. Fauci. She also argued that the study was a waste of taxpayers’ money.
“The deadly experiments on dogs are proof that Fauci’s boss is stuck in the failed science of yesteryear.”
“He is spending billions of dollars on studies that include infecting and cutting up dogs, frightening monkeys, and addicting mice to cocaine that don’t lead to cures or vaccines while humans die from Alzheimer’s, HIV, cancer, multiple sclerosis, ALS, and other deadly ailments.”
A spokesman from the University of Georgia stated that the research was for a vaccine that would protect humans against an unknown disease, according to the New York Post. Federal guidelines also state that vaccines must be tested on animals before being approved for clinical trials.
“According to researchers at the UGA College of Veterinary Medicine, beagles are the standard dog model used in this type of research. Because this disease currently has no cure, unfortunately, the animals that are part of this trial must be euthanized. We do not take lightly the decision to use such animals in some of our research.”
“Nearly every advancement in medicine, medical devices and surgical procedures has depended on research involving animal subjects.”
