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.


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.

  1. These barbaric experiments must be stopped by any means! Anyone that can take DA must do so! yes

  2. Milantia Roy says:

    what a miserable sadistic and cruel person – deserves to be sent to the gas chamber
    Down with him!

  3. Gabriela Torres says:

    Dear Secretary Vilsack,
    I cannot believe that these brutal experiments be allowed in the USA which prides itself on being just …

  4. Robert Brossard says:

    I’d love to hear that this barbarism is banned and its perpetrators face the most cruelest death

  5. As far as I am aware Musk is not involved in the medical world. He is not a doctor nor educated in any way pertaining to these horrific experiments. This cruelty does need to stop and Musk must be legally charged as this is abuse. There is no excuse and no reason for this type of experimentation to exist much less continue. As I continue to say, our laws are not strict enough. We need powerful laws in order to restrict the ultra rich, and anyone else, to commit these horrors.

  6. WHY can’t this filthy rich idiot do something Great with all the money in the world??? Instead of having defenseless Animals tortured to death in unnecessary experiments. WHY not spend a few mil on alternative more reliable methods.
    Makes me sick. Poor Animals being tortured to death for whatever monster humans what to do with them. This is so unnecessary and should not be happening.

  7. Alice Knight says:

    As far as I can see, in my opinion, Elon Musk is a menace to the animal kingdom. He has to be stopped, nipped in the bud so to speak before he tortures other animals of any kind! Please it is necessary for him to be haulted of these practices.
