EXPOSED: FBI “stabbing, burning and shooting” live animals with your tax money

“[S]tabbing, burning and shooting pigs and goats, and sometimes even dogs….” Is this how you want your money spent?

White Coat Waste Project recently discovered that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and U.S. Marshal’s Service (USMS)–both housed within the Department of Justice (DOJ)–spent $120,000 on contracts for outdated “live tissue training” (LTT) in which animals are violently inflicted with traumatic injuries so trainees can allegedly practice human medical skills.  It’s as wasteful and cruel as it sounds.

Now, following discussions with WCW, influential lawmakers with oversight authority over the DOJ–House Judiciary Committee member Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) and Vice Chair of the DOJ’s funding panel Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-PA)–are taking action. In a new letter to Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen, they call out the LTT contracts that entail, as they explain, “stabbing, burning and shooting pigs and goats, and sometimes even dogs….”

US government live tissue training

 

The Congressmen write that, “the use of animals for this training is expensive, obsolete, unnecessary and opposed by most Americans” and that LTT has fallen out of favor because high-tech human simulators are more effective and cost-efficient. The lawmakers also ask a series of questions about the extent and cost of the DOJ’s LTT.

The DOJ continues to waste tax dollars on crude live tissue training on animals when other government entities have switched to more effective and cost-efficient human simulators.

 

Is this how you want your money spent? Take a moment to write your Congress members and urge them to cut funding for wasteful animal experiments.

Stop this!

This is outrageous that our own FBI and US Marshalls are engaged in the blatant acts of cruelty against helpless animals when there are other methods available. I urge you to cease this practice immediately as I am certain that citizens would be outraged if they really knTew what is happening with the Justice Department’s abhorrent cruelty to animals. Where is the justice in this?????

This is outrageous that our own FBI and US Marshals are engaged in the blatant acts of cruelty against helpless animals when there are other methods available. I urge you to cease this practice immediately as I am certain that citizens would be outraged if they knew the Justice Department officials sworn to uphold the law were committing felony animal abuse.

I agree with your post and everyone else’s posts, this is horrible and barbaric, does your families know what you are doing torturing and killing innocent animals…they know now!

FBI and U. S. Marshall’s doing this…you people are sick and disgusting this is not justice in any shape or form! How can you people sleep at night, shooting and killing innocent animals for no reason and you people were sworn to uphold the Law you should not be upholding the Law, you people should be scrapping gunk from a bottom of the barrel not a Officer of the Law, I have no faith in you people, if you can do this to animals you can do this to humans!
