Rand Paul’s annual report on government wasteful spending is out and this year includes animal experiments that were paid for by taxpayers. These experiments are part of the waste we need to cut from government spending. White Coat Waste exposed the animal testing found in Rand’s report.

The report details over $1.5 million dollars spent on walking lizards on treadmills, over $4.5 million on rat testing, and over $36 million to test stress on mice. This is unacceptable!

All in all, the government spends $20 billion on animal experiments. Previous reports have also uncovered animal testing.

Animal testing is a useless and unethical part of scientific research, the testing is found to be ineffective, as 95% of drugs that pass animal tests fail on humans. Numerous companies are standing up against animal testing and recently the USDA made a decision to eliminate some mammalian testing by 2025 but there’s more to be done and it’s time countries ban animal experimentation altogether as it hurts humans as well.
