NIH Under Investigation for $ 1.2 Million Purchase of Beagles for ‘Hideous’ Experiments: PETA VP
| News Today | Fox News
The National Institutes of Health have been accused of participating in a $ 1.2 million contract over the past decade to buy beagles for cruel experiments, said Daphna Nachminovich, senior vice president of investigations into the PETA’s cruelty in “Tucker Carlson Tonight”.
The most recent alleged violation comes from Virginia-based supplier Envigo, which is accused of supplying nearly 5,000 beagle dogs and puppies to NIH and other labs for containment and torture.
During a visit by a PETA investigator, more than 360 dogs were reportedly found dead.
The NIH was cited by the Agriculture Department for the “horrendous” conditions inside these warehouses, Nachminovich said on Tuesday.

“They have been cited (…) for direct and critical violations,” she said. “For not having provided basic necessities to these nursing mothers and their puppies, keeping the animals at temperatures up to 92 degrees without air conditioning, plunging needles into the puppies’ heads to drain the bruises … and much more . “
The investigation is ongoing, she added, saying the dogs at these establishments are being bred especially for “cruel experiments which are unnecessary” and paid for by taxpayer dollars.
Why would Beagles be the breed of choice? The executive of PETA has revealed the horrible truth: They are easy to torture.
“Beagles are small and docile,” she said. “They are such gentle and loyal dogs, and unfortunately they are so submissive that they are easy to torture without posing a risk to the public safety of their attackers.”
Dr Anthony Fauci and the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases have been implicated in the scandal for originally funding experiments in Tunisia where, according to PETA, beagle puppies were drugged before their heads were locked. in cages filled with hungry and infected sandflies.
