Members of Congress are demanding answers from White House medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci after it came to light that his agency funded experiments that included cutting the vocal cords of beagle puppies to silence their cries. Researchers also locked beagles in cages overnight in the desert to use them as bait to attract sand flies. Research involved drugging puppies and locking their heads in mesh cages filled with hungry sand flies to infect them with disease-causing parasites.
“We write with grave concerns about reports of costly, cruel and unnecessary taxpayer-funded experiments on dogs commissioned by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID),” 24 Republican and Democrat lawmakers said on Thursday in a letter (read below) to Fauci.
The letter noted that as director of NIAID, Fauci had directed $1.68 million in taxpayer money to fund medical testing on at least 44 beagle puppies in 2018 and 2019.
Everyone should go hug their dog right now. If you don’t have one hug someone else’s. Better yet, find a shelter and go adopt a dog 🐕. A Beagle in memory of the ones #Fauci helped to torture and kill. https://t.co/6hgBznWbUH— beagle lives matter ⚖️ ✈️ 😁 (@PhilHollowayEsq) October 23, 2021
An invoice sent to NIAID included a line item for “cordectomy,” a procedure in which the animal’s vocal cords were slit “to prevent them from barking, howling or crying,” the letter said.
“This cruel procedure, which is opposed with rare exceptions by the American Veterinary Medical Association and others, 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.”

The signatories to the letter, including such congressional representatives as Nancy Mace (R-South Carolina) and Ted Lieu (D-California), pointed out that the FDA has said that experimentation on dogs isn’t required for approval of new drugs.
They demanded to know how many such tests NIAID has funded since 2018 and how much money was spent. The representatives also asked Fauci to explain why he has continued to commission testing on dogs, inasmuch as it’s not required, and what his agency has done to find non-animal alternatives.
In addition, they sought more details on the cordectomies, such as the cost and reasoning behind the unnecessary procedure, as well as information on whether dogs have been made available for adoption upon conclusion of the testing.
The testing on beagles was exposed in August, when a nonprofit group called the White Coat Waste Project (WCW) obtained documents on the experiments under the Freedom of Information Act.
The group alleged that Fauci has directed funding of “wasteful and brutal” beagle experiments at labs in Tunisia, California and Georgia. Such research was also done at the headquarters of the National Institute of Health (NIH), parent of NIAID.
Dubbing the controversy ‘BeagleGate’, WCW said US-funded research at the Tunisia lab involved drugging puppies and locking their heads in mesh cages filled with hungry sand flies to infect them with disease-causing parasites.
Researchers also locked beagles in cages overnight in the desert to use them as bait to attract sand flies.
The aim was to test an experimental drug on the diseased beagles. The dogs were six to eight months old, and they were all killed and dissected upon completion of the tests, according to WCW.
NIAID-backed research at the University of Georgia involved injecting beagles with experimental vaccines and infesting them with parasites, the group has said.
WCW has exposed FOUR different locations where #Fauci funded wasteful & brutal BEAGLE experiments. Georgia, California, Africa… even Fauci’s own NIH lab in Maryland! What could be next? #BeagleGatehttps://t.co/XGIY3Zf64f pic.twitter.com/08eP9u7khe— White Coat Waste Project🥼🗑️ (@WhiteCoatWaste) October 12, 2021
According to documents obtained using the Freedom of Information Act, Dr Fauci spent $424,000 to commission experiments where dogs were bitten to death by flies.
Dr. Anthony Fauci’s agency, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has also been conducting a series of secret experiments that grafted the scalps of aborted fetuses onto living mice and rats.
Almost $400,000 have been spent on these experiments. These studies were meant to investigate the tendency of human skin to develop infections.
The firestorm over dog testing adds to the controversies surrounding Fauci, who had testified to Congress that he didn’t fund gain-of-function research.
The NIH admitted this week in response to a congressional letter that its funding had been used to conduct gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab.
On account of his recent congressional testimony, Dr Fauci maybe facing 5 years in prison for lying to the Congress about funding the Gain-of-function research at Wuhan lab.
Here Dr #Fauci admits to experimenting with SARS-CoV-1 to prevent SARS-COV-2. And we also know he predicted (threatened) that there will be a pandemic.— GreatGameIndia (@GreatGameIndia) July 24, 2021
Fauci just didn't lie to US Congress, he lied to the whole world. Read more 👉🏽 https://t.co/3FCV03Unqj pic.twitter.com/DjFZB3lpAV
Gain-of-function is the ability of a virus to jump from animals to humans. This cross-species jump was not natural and was achieved by the team lead by the Batwoman of China, Shi Zhengli. You can read more about it in detail in COVID19 Files – Scientific Investigation On Mysterious Origin Of Coronavirus.
Fauci Emails reveal that it was Dr Anthony Fauci himself who threatened the Indian scientists and forced them to withdraw their study which found that COVID-19 was manmade having AIDS virus like insertions.
Meanwhile, Dr Fauci colluded with top British scientists to cover-up COVID-19 bioweapons research and instead peddle the natural origin theory.
Recently, Dr. Malik Peiris, who previously served on the Lancet medical journal’s COVID-19 origins investigation committee, received China’s “Nobel Prize” for research concluding that COVID-19 developed naturally.
Meanwhile, American lawmakers have introduced the Fire Fauci Act with the intention to fire Dr Anthony Fauci for misinformation with regards to COVID-19 and for covering-up the origin of the virus.
According to federal salaries data available for last year, Anthony Fauci is the highest paid employee in the entire US government. In fact, Dr. Fauci even made more than the salary of the President of the United States.
The Fire Fauci Act will bring Fauci’s salary to $0 and require Senate confirmation to fill his position.
