According to a report published by a monitoring group, between 2003 and 2015 the US government conducted experiments in which scientists were euthanized dogs and cats from abroad and fed their remains with laboratory research cats
according to reports in Maryland, 400 dogs from Colombia, Brazil and Vietnam and over 100 cats from China and Ethiopia have been purchased for the study, NBC News says. The White Wat Waste (WCWP) monitoring team collected their data from the USDA scientific publications. The report of the group says, "Some of these cats and dogs are bought by the government from the same Asian meat markets that the US Congress is modest."
The USDA reports say some of the experiments are designed to analyze of forms of a parasite that causes toxoplasmosis.NBC News added: "Experiments have been conducted at the USDA Laboratory for Animal Testing in the Parazite Animal Laboratory in Beltsville, MD The plant has already been subjected to fire by some lawmakers for the killing of cats , front Eren infected by T. Gondii, parasite that causes toxoplasmosis. "
Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL), who sponsored the legislation called Kittens in Traumatic Testing Ends Now ̵
Maatcha also said " The fact that we need legislation to order the farmer government to stop killing kittens is funny on his face. But what's worse is when you hear the details that the government actually bred hundreds of these cats only deliberately. feed them with raw meat with parasites and then kill them, even though they are perfectly healthy. "
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
Toxoplasmosis is considered to be the leading one. the cause of death due to nutritional diseases in the United States. More than 40 million men, women and children in the United States carry the parasite Toxoplasm but very few have symptoms because the immune system usually protects the parasite from causing the disease. However, women infected with new Toxoplasma during or shortly before pregnancy and anyone with a compromised immune system should be aware that toxoplasmosis can have severe consequences.
WCW Vice President of Advocacy and Public Policy Justin Goodman said scientists had enough samples and so you should not keep killing cats, saying, "They just do not have to do it anymore, it's scientifically useless."
NBC News noted:
Studies conducted using animals from China say that "cats are humanely killed under the SIC Animal Slaughtering Law (sic)." The WCW report calls for this statement " and misleading, "and refers to the Congress resolution of 2018 condemning Chinese facilities.The resolution said that treating dogs and cats in Chinese facilities would" violate the laws of cruelty in the United States. "
According to WCW, about 4000 cats are were murdered for the study
