NIH Funded the University of Iowa to Feed Dogs to Sand Flies
Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (02-27-2023) #819C: Justin Goodman of the Whitecoat Waste Project reveals yet another grotesque, cruel and unnecessary NIH-funded animal experiment in which the University of Iowa was a partner. They attached plastic cups filled with biting sand flies to the ears and flanks of abandoned hounds — essentially feeding the dogs to flies — then killed the dogs as part of the experiment. Some of the experimentation was farmed out to Tunisia — a common NIH dodge of US animal protection laws being to ship overseas what would be illegal with US animal protection laws.
