(LifeSiteNews) — National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) head Dr. Anthony Fauci is under fire after a nonprofit organization reported that he funded research to infect beagle puppies with parasites in order to test an experimental drug.
The allegations were raised by the White Coat Waste Project, a nonprofit watchdog organization that raised the alarm about the NIH sending U.S. taxpayer dollars to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) for research on bat coronaviruses.
The NIH has since admitted that it funded “gain of function” research to artificially enhance bat coronaviruses and make them more transmissible to humans, despite Fauci’s repeated statements under oath that taxpayer money was not going toward the research.
Now, after obtaining documents through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, the White Coat Waste Project is alleging that Fauci was involved in funding a different type of research, which is leading to calls for Fauci’s resignation or even arrest.

The nonprofit alleges that a study funded by Fauci in Tunisia, North Africa in 2018 and 2019 involved deliberately infecting 44 beagle puppies with flesh-eating parasites for the purpose of testing out an experimental treatment, The Hill reported.
“Our investigators show that Fauci’s NIH division shipped part of a $375,800 grant to a lab in Tunisia to drug beagles and lock their heads in mesh cages filled with hungry sand flies so that the insects could eat them alive,” White Coat Waste told The Hill.
“They also locked beagles alone in cages in the desert overnight for nine consecutive nights to use them as bait to attract infectious sand flies,” the report states.
According to the group, the research was also being conducted stateside in California, Georgia, and Maryland.
The nonprofit further alleges that while the experiments were being conducted, scientists performed cordectomies (a removal of the vocal cords) on some of the puppies so the workers would not be bothered by the tortured puppies’ barking.
In response to the shocking allegations, at least 23 U.S. legislators from both parties have now signed onto a bipartisan letter demanding answers.
Republican Rep. Nancy Mace of South Carolina penned the letter addressed to Dr. Fauci, calling the research “costly, cruel,” “unnecessary,” and a “reprehensible misuse of taxpayer funds.”
Yesterday, I sent a letter to Dr. Fauci regarding cruel, taxpayer-funded experiments on puppies; debarking before drugging and killing them. Thankful to my 23 democrat and republican colleagues who signed on. This is disgusting. What say you @NIH pic.twitter.com/c54SXipD9Q

“The dogs were all between the ages of six and eight months old,” Mace wrote. “The commissioned tests involved injecting and force-feeding the puppies an experimental drug for several weeks, before killing and dissecting them.”
According to Mace, information gathered via the FOIA request and subsequent media coverage indicates that Dr. Fauci’s NIAID supported the research from October 2018 to February 2019, spending a total of $1.68 million in taxpayer dollars.
The allegations have resulted in a social media firestorm, with many calling for Fauci to explain himself, be fired, or even to be arrested, with the hashtag #ArrestFauci trending on Twitter.
“#ArrestFauci trends on Twitter as doctor faces criticism for controversial virus research, testing on dogs,” wrote Fox News’ Kyle Morris.

“If you’re angry about how Fauci uses puppies, just wait until you hear how he uses COVID vaccines on healthy kids. #ArrestFauci,” wrote former CIA officer and current political and national security writer Bryan Dean Wright, who later remarked, “To save Fauci, the Left has to defend the torture of puppies.”

“It’s time to open the books on all of Fauci’s projects over the years. We need to understand exactly what sick things our tax dollars have been going to!” declared Colorado Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert.

Disturbing experiments on beagle puppies aren’t the only NIH-funded projects which have raised eyebrows.
In addition to funding dangerous gain of function research in Wuhan, China, the NIH was also met with strong criticism from pro-life groups after evidence emerged that under the leadership of Dr. Francis Collins, the institute granted millions of dollars for research projects involving the implantation of organs harvested from aborted babies (some of whom may have been delivered alive for organ harvesting before being killed) into mice.
Such biomedical human genome research included a study funded by Dr. Fauci’s NIAID and conducted at the University of Pittsburgh in 2020, which involved grafting human fetal scalps onto mice to study skin conditions.
In response, over 100 congressmen signed onto a letter calling upon the NIH to release details surrounding its connection with University of Pittsburgh’s “repulsive” and “unethical” fetal research.
“I’m disgusted these researchers may have harvested the organs of babies who were born alive,” @RepLisaMcClain said. “Scientists should never put their research over a human life. We need a full investigation into what happened…"

Less than two weeks after the letter was submitted, and shortly after 900 pages of documents providing evidence that the NIH funded research to make bat coronaviruses more transmissible to humans were released in September, Dr. Collins announced he would resign from his role by the end of 2021.
PETITION UPDATE (5/12/2021) -
It seems that Dr. Anthony Fauci's role in the NIH's funding of so-called "gain-of-function" research may be catching up with him.
In the last couple of days, both U.S. Senator Rand Paul and Fox's Tucker Carlson have laid into Fauci for his alleged promotion of this dangerous research which develops bat-based coronaviruses into more potent variants, capable of infecting humans.
Dr. Fauci denied funding this research.
But, Senator Paul noted that a resident virologist at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Dr. Shi Zheng-li and Dr. Ralph Baric, an American virologist funded by Fauci's department in the NIH, "collaborated on gain-of-function research where they enhanced the SARS virus to infect human airway cells and they did it by merging a new spy protein on it. That is gain-of-function. That was joint research between the Wuhan Institute and Dr. Baric. You [Dr. Fauci] can’t deny it."
And, later, Fox News host Tucker Carlson picked up on the discrepancy, noting Fauci’s involvement in the creation and promotion of public health directives on account of COVID-19 while also being allegedly tied to the origin of the virus and its spread throughout the world.
So, the evidence - both in testimony and in the court of public opinion - continues to mount.
Could we ask you to consider SIGNING and SHARING this important petition, which calls for Dr. Fauci to be fired and investigated for any role he played in promoting and funding the dangerous research which may have cost the world dearly in lives and jobs lost.
When concerned scientists warned the US government of the great danger of creating superviruses in the lab, one man publicly defended the risky experiments: that man was the influential head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), none other than "Mr. Science" himself: Dr. Anthony Fauci.
In 2014, the same year the US government called for a moratorium on this insanely dangerous research, Dr. Fauci's NIAID began funding a program to study the transmission of bat coronaviruses to humans.
Not only did his funding go to develop the technology for making bat coronaviruses spread more easily to humans, but much of it went to the lab located in the exact location where the Covid pandemic eventually emerged: Wuhan, China.
Like every person, Dr. Fauci deserves to be presumed innocent until proven guilty.
But the evidence is so overwhelming that Fauci gambled with a supervirus and lost (the whole world lost), that, at a minimum, he needs to be fired from his position of public trust and must be investigated for possible violations of US law which mandated a moratorium on this extremely dangerous practice of creating superviruses in the lab.
However Dr. Fauci, far from being held responsible for his dangerous gamble, has been promoted to the point where, currently, he is the highest paid employee in the US Government.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition if you agree that Dr. Anthony Fauci should instead be immediately fired and investigated for his role in causing the Covid-19 pandemic.
Just like the Wall Street moguls, whose financial negligence precipitated the financial crisis of 2008, received massive bailout bonuses, Dr. Anthony Fauci recklessly pushed for the research that probably caused the deadly pandemic. And now, he, too, has been rewarded with money and power.
As has been carefully and meticulously documented by Steve Hilton of Fox News, the probable origins of the coronavirus point to Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Dr. Fauci was one of the greatest proponents of developing superviruses in labs.
Dr. Fauci was responsible for the funding of much of the research through the NIAID.
And, it appears that Dr. Fauci funneled taxpayer funds through an intermediary to allow the research to continue in the unsafe Wuhan Institute of Virology, even after the US government banned the funding of this dangerous research.
Until a thorough investigation into his role of the origins of the current pandemic has taken place, Dr. Fauci should not be in a position of public trust.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to demand that Dr. Fauci be fired immediately and investigated fully for his role in the creation of Covid-19 and the ensuing pandemic.
P.S. It should be noted that Dr. Fauci not only has proven to be catastrophic for public health with his advocacy of dangerous research, but he has also been a disastrous public health advisor, advocating measures that have negatively impacted every aspect of our lives, from the economy to our most fundamental liberties.
P.P.S. Dr. Anthony Fauci, recently stated that he is delighted to be pushing Joe Biden's return to US taxpayer funding of abortions abroad. So, evidently, not only does Dr. Fauci have problems with public health, public safety, and economics, but also with basic human rights and embryology.
