(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Only days after Elon Musk dropped the bombshell Twitter files on Hunter Biden and regime collusion to censor the laptop from hell story, the Biden administration is launching an investigation into Musk’s Neuralink over allegations that the company is in violation of animal welfare laws.

Musk serves as CEO for Neuralink, which is developing an “ultra high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers.” Those endeavors will be under investigation by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Inspector General.

According to the Daily Wire, the investigation will primarily focus on potential violations of the Animal Welfare Act, which “regulates the treatment of animals in research, teaching, testing, exhibition, transport and by dealers.”

Initial interviews with staff found that Neuralink actually treats animals better compared to other research facilities.

Executives at the company have discussed building a “Monkey Disneyland” or “Monkey Taj Mahal” where the animals can entertain themselves when not participating in tests.

A few employees claimed that Musk’s push to meet faster deadlines on particular products led to some mistakes when testing the machine on pigs and monkeys. The alleged faster pace results in more animal deaths due to botched surgeries.

Animals are usually killed at the end of experiments like these in order to do post mortem analysis to determine side effects and effectiveness of the experiment.

Some other mistakes have simply been slip-ups, such as implanting the incorrect device or putting it in the wrong area of the animal.

Musk recently announced that Neuralink will be entering the human clinical trial stage in the next six months. The goal of the initial implants undergoing tests is to assist handicapped people with movement and communication.

“We want to be extremely careful and certain that it will work well before putting a device into a human,” Musk said. “The progress at first, particularly as it applies to humans, will seem perhaps agonizingly slow, but we are doing all of the things to bring it to scale in parallel. So, in theory, progress should be exponential.”
