PETA’s Daphna Nachminovitch accused the NIH of a $1.2 million deal to buy beagles for cruel research.

PETA’s Daphna Nachminovitch on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” says the National Institutes of Health was accused of having a $1.2 million contract over the last decade to buy beagles to be used in cruel experiments.

The latest accusation comes from Virginia-based Envigo, which allegedly supplied nearly 5,000 beagle dogs and puppies to NIH and other facilities to be confined and tortured.

More than 360 dogs were allegedly found dead during a PETA investigator’s visit.

The USDA has cited the NIH for the “hideous” conditions in these warehouses, Nachminovitch said Tuesday.

“They have been cited … for direct and critical violations,” she stated.

“For failure to provide basic necessities of life to these nursing mother dogs and their puppies, keeping animals in temperatures as high as 92 degrees without air conditioning, plunging needles into the heads of puppies to drain hematomas … and so much more.”

In addition, she said that the dogs in these facilities are being raised for “cruel experiments that are useless” and being paid by taxpayer money.

Nachminovitch estimates the NIH spends $19.6 billion annually on animal research.
