Don’t Let Elon Musk Mutilate Monkey Brains

Target: Tom Vilsack, Secretary of U.S. Department of Agriculture

Goal: Investigate reported torture and deaths of lab monkeys associated with neurotech firm.

Elon Musk created another splash when his company, the Neuralink Organization, released a video of a monkey seemingly playing a video game with only his mind. Neuralink touted this development as an advancement of its aspirations to link human brains with computers. Now, the company is facing allegations that its cutting-edge research is rooted in animal cruelty.

The charges concern rhesus monkeys used as test subjects in University of California-Davis laboratories. Staff of Neuralink have claimed that testing on the animals is being rushed at Musk’s command and causing the monkeys great harm and even death as a result. A group known as the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine has further highlighted allegations about what took place in the laboratory.

They say that documentation shows how the skulls of the monkeys were cut open so that brain chips could be implanted. In addition, a substance that has not been properly vetted was allegedly used in the testing, resulting in the reported death of at least one monkey. The committee further claims that the monkeys were not being treated well and were possibly being deprived of veterinary care.

The United Stated Department of Agriculture (USDA), which oversees the nation’s animal cruelty laws, has reportedly launched an investigation into the matter. Sign the petition below to demand appropriate penalties be given to any responsible parties if wrongdoing is discovered.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Secretary Vilsack,

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine recently appealed to this agency to investigate the University of California-Davis laboratory and Neuralink for their purported roles in cruel animal testing. They stated that during these tests “monkeys had their brains mutilated in shoddy experiments and were left to suffer and die.” The USDA has by accounts begun at least a preliminary investigation into the allegations.

Please remain vigilant in this pursuit. If either the laboratory or Neuralink is found to have caused inhumane suffering to lab animals, hold them fully accountable. No true progress can arise from barbarity and cruelty.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. The more we learn of Elon Musk the more we discover he’s a cruel unfit sociopath.

  2. IF ELON MUSK HAS NO BRAINS AT ALL HE MUST USE BRAINS OF APES WHO ARE MOST LIKELY LIKE HUMAN BEINGS. THAT SHOWS NOW THE BEST THAT HE HAS NO BRAINS. LOCK HIM UP IN JAIL FOREVER.

  3. Animal testing needs to stop. If the lack of progress is really “driving him nuts” then maybe he should offer himself as the the first human subject.

  4. MUSK NEEDS TO STOP ANIMAL TESTING AND USED HIMSELF AS THE FIRST HUMAN SUBJET BUT NOT DEFENSELESS LIVING BEINGS.

  5. Why don’t we experiment on Elon!!!

  6. Because this sociopath has more money than anyone else he will buy his way out of any problems. Shut down all animal testing labs and then maybe he will have to as well.

  7. He is a complete danger to animals. So that makes him a total danger to people. He shouldn’t even be in charge of his own life

    Unfortunately money rules. A little petition is nice, however repulsive the act it doesn’t work. I have signed petitions with over 1 million signatures and the money people are continuing as if nothing matters except money!

  9. Maria Lavorato says:

    This petition came out before and nothing has been done? SHUT DOWN Neuralink!!!!!

    STOP THIS PSYCHO NOW. DON’T CARE IF HE HAS MONEY!!!

    THIS IS BEYOND ANIMAL CRUELTY. SO CHARGE HIM AND PUT HIM IN JAIL! FINES AS WELL TO GO BACK TO ANIMALS THAT HE HAS TORTURED!

    HERE’S A THOUGHT START CUTTING OPEN HIS BRAIN AND ANYONE INVOLVED IN THIS VICIOUS TORTURES!

  10. Oh god! Not another moron. Isn’t that damn fauci-stein enough. What is wrong with these pieces of crap? They are void of compassion, empathy and common sense, which makes them useless to society. They are the ones who should be experimented on. Unbelievable!!!!!!

  11. Elon Musk is an evil POS period!

  12. Having more money than brains is not your ticket to abusing animals to satisfy your sociopathic curiosity. Testing anything on animals is vile and this is heinous so why is he getting away with this? Part of the USDA’s mandate is animal welfare and protecting animals from cruel and unusual abuse for the fun of Elon Musk. USDA, do your job and stop this BS.

  13. Research good. Animal cruelty bad and not necessary!

  14. I am signing this petition because I want to see this actually be investigated and get the WHOLE story. Ya’ll commenting with evil, pos, Hitler, psychopath, sociopath are all nuts. If you haven’t learned by now… believe half of what you see & none of what you hear

  15. C e ton, I agree with you.

    p.s.
    I will ignore any comments
    to my post.

  16. If we’ve de-evolved to the point where if these monsters have enough money (therefore power), they are immune from any accountability, NO MATTER HOW MUCH HARM THEY CAUSE TO LIVING BEINGS AND THE VERY PLANET!! ARE WE GOING TO TOLERATE THIS UNTIL IT’S TOO LATE??????

    Doing experiments on monkeys while still alive in their brands is one of sickest things I’ve heard of in a long time. This has to stop now 🤬😢🤬😢🤬😢

    Does anyone of you realize how much animal abuse, torture and murder is done by our government agencies? Our universities and colleges are government funded animal abuse/torture/murder labs! It isn’t just Elon Musk that’s sickening – take a look around at the facilities, the universities, the agencies that are funded by our government with our taxpayer money! It sure doesn’t make what Musk is doing right, but he’s learned from our government how to get by with it.

  19. Immoral Sociopath makes me sick. Just shows you all the money in the world doesn’t maketh the man.
