USDA spent tax dollars at China's "wet markets"

cat meat

Last year, WCW exposed that for years, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) bureaucrats used our tax dollars to secretively fly to China, purchase dogs and cats from disease-ridden "wet markets," fly back the animals' organs on their carry-on luggage, and then force-feed the dog and cat flesh to kittens in cannibalism tests at a federal laboratory in Maryland.

WCW's campaign shut down the wasteful decades-old, $22 million study last year, but if it wasn't for this victory, USDA experimenters could potentially have brought back COVID-19 and other dangerous viruses to America.

If you've already washed your hands and kept a responsible social distance, here's one more thing you can do: tell Congress to stop sending your tax dollars to wet markets and animal labs in China!

Please sign the petition: Permanently BAN U.S. tax $$ from being shipped to China for animal testing and roundups!


Tax dollars funding animal testing in China - WCW recently exposed that the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) has been sending tens of millions of tax dollars specifically for animal testing to foreign countries each year.

The NIH has authorized 24 labs in China to spend your tax dollars on animal experiments, including the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Reports also indicate that experimental animals from labs like this in China are sometimes sold to wet markets for consumption.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
