Recently discovered photos and government records appear to show that Dr. Anthony Fauci’s division of the National Institute of Health (NIH), the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), shipped part of a $375,800 grant to a lab in Tunisia, Africa to perform cruel experiments on beagles.
The White Coat Waste Project (WCW), the nonpartisan watchdog group that discovered the experiments, reported that scientists used the taxpayer funds to “drug beagles and lock their heads in mesh cages filled with hundreds of infected sand flies.” According to WCW, the dogs were “eaten alive” by the flies.
Earlier last month, WCW also reported that the Fauci-run NIAID spent $424,455 in taxpayer funds on experiments to infest beagles with parasite-carrying flies at the University of Georgia. The beagles were reportedly “vocalizing in pain” during the experiment and were scheduled to be euthanized in June 2021.

Unlike the first beagle experiment, the most recently uncovered one was performed overseas in Tunisia where, according to WCW, “the NIH has no oversight and there are no laws protecting animals used in experiments.”
In the Tunisia study, the researchers starved the flies to make them hungry and “the sand flies were then allowed to feed on the sedated dogs…”
In a second part of the Fauci-funded experiments in Tunisia, experimenters locked beagles in cages alone in the desert for nine consecutive nights, using them as bait to attract infectious sand flies.
WCW also reported that Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases is also responsible for shipping tax dollars to Wuhan, China for dangerous gain-of-function experiments, which the majority of Americans believe caused the pandemic.
In July, a coalition of House Republicans issued a letter demanding answers from the NIH about its funding of wasteful animal testing overseas.
“Taxpayers shouldn’t be forced to foot the bill for this government waste and abuse,” said Mackie Burr, Director of WCW’s Digital & Grassroots Development.
