(TruthandLiberty.com) – Researchers often test drugs and vaccines on animals before regulators clear them for clinical trials in humans. Yet, many people have strong distinctions between mice and dogs, or man’s “best friend.” Recently, the Conservative watchdog group, the White Coat Waste Project, alleged that the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), headed by Dr. Anthony Fauci, funded cruel, controversial research involving the abuse of beagle puppies.
The White Coat Waste Project obtained public records through the Freedom of Information Act. The group alleged Fauci blew $5 million poisoning puppies, cutting out their vocal cords and subjecting them to sandflies before ending their lives with euthanasia. Animal rights groups and social media pushed Fauci hard on the studies, and many members of Congress are asking questions to get to the facts.
"Two other studies testing potential vaccines and treatments for humans ended with the beagles in the study being euthanized. In one, the dogs also had their vocal cords cut."

The Conservative group admitted it doesn’t know if Fauci was involved in the study in any way or even knew about it. What the activist group concluded was his agency funded it. The NIAID suggested it did nothing wrong, and it follows all regulations and laws involved in the testing of animals.
Researchers at universities say beagles are the standard dog breed used in these types of research. They allege studies involving dogs helped create advanced treatments for cancers and infectious diseases.
The Beagle Freedom Project is a non-profit animal rights organization. The organization says it sent a letter to Dr. Fauci asking him to stop the funding supporting the torture of beagles for scientific studies. It accused the National Institutes of Health and Fauci of committing a criminal act. Dr. Fauci hasn’t spoken about the allegations.
