(UnitedHeadlines.com) – The US government isn’t always transparent about what it does with American taxpayers’ money. Take Area 51, for example. Sadly, these funds go to horrible causes at times. Such is the case of a recent exposure, revealing millions of dollars going into experimenting on puppies.
The White Coat Waste Project, a taxpayer watchdog group, discovered the National Institutes of Health (NIH) funneled $2.3 million into research that’s causing quite an uproar. Allegedly, the experimentation involved injecting seven beagle puppies with cocaine and another substance to uncover how they react with each other. A subsidiary of the NIH, the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA), claimed their goal was to find a treatment for cocaine addiction.

The NIH funded the NIDA’s experiment, which used a special jacket to inject the six-month-old puppies with the substances. Researchers went so far as to surgically implant telemetry units into the poor creatures to monitor their vital signs. Once the animals served their purpose, scientists either euthanized them or “recycled” them in other experiments.
These disturbing revelations have many Americans outraged at the horrific use of their hard-earned cash. Aren’t there plenty of other projects the government could’ve used those funds for? Was torturing innocent puppies really the best way to spend taxpayer money?
