The Humane Society of Virginia is trying to find homes for 4.000 beagles, exactly two weeks after NIAID Director Anthony Fauci told congress he would no longer use beagles for allergy testing.
These two stories seem connected.
July 5, 2022 – Under fire from foes of federal animal testing, the agency headed by COVID-19 czar Anthony Fauci has canceled a plan to start new tests of allergy medicine on beagles, some as young as 6 months.
In a letter to Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) and promoted by the White Coat Waste Project, Fauci said that instead of dogs, the new hay fever drug will be tested on rodents.
“Although the contract to Inimmune Corporation proposed the use of murine and canine preclinical animal models, after consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the company elected to proceed using two rodent models only,” wrote Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “No experiments utilizing the canine model are being conducted under this contract.”
[…] The letter was a big victory for Ernst and the animal rights group, which had started a popular hashtag campaign against the testing: #BeagleGate. (read more)
Yesterday, this next story surfaced:
July 15, 2022 – CUMBERLAND, Va. — The Humane Society of the United States says it is working fast to transfer thousands of dogs bred for medical research from a facility in Virginia.
On Wednesday, the Humane Society said that over the course of 60 days, they’d be transporting around 4,000 beagles in stages to shelters nationwide so they could be adopted. (read more)
Good grief, is that the scale of Anthony Fauci’s beagle abuse?
