Neuralink Dead Monkey Photos Being Hidden? New Exposé Reveals Shocking Horrors

Disturbing details surrounding the deaths of macaque monkeys involved in Neuralink experiments have been revealed in an exposé. The investigation sheds light on the harrowing fate of a specific macaque, known as The Tan Macaque, whose tragic journey led to euthanasia due to a severe neurological defect caused by Neuralink’s scientists.

According to Wired the macaque’s suffering began when her brain began to swell, leading to seizures, vomiting, and loss of motor function, all observed via livestream by the California National Primate Center staff. An autopsy later revealed that the pressure inside her skull deformed and ruptured her brain, a result of a toxic adhesive around the Neuralink implant, ultimately violating the U.S. Animal Welfare Act.

Contrary to Elon Musk’s claims that no primates died due to Neuralink’s implants, specifics about the macaque deaths have prompted a call for U.S. authorities to investigate. Additionally, Veterinary records from the University of California, Davis, which oversees the research, have omitted hundreds of photographs taken between 2018 and 2020 of Neuralink’s test subjects.

These photographs are described as critical evidence that could shed light on the experiments conducted on the macaques, which involved drilling dime-sized holes into the monkeys’ skulls, inserting electrodes into their brains, and affixing titanium plates to their skulls. Photos of these procedures could provide insight into the extent of the macaques’ suffering and the impact of Neuralink’s work.

Despite being a publicly funded institution bound by California’s open records law, UC Davis has been actively fighting against releasing these Neuralink photographs for over a year, arguing that making them public would not serve the public’s interest. However, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is suing UC Davis for releasing these images and videos.

The Committee asserts that the public has the right to know about any suffering resulting from taxpayer-funded animal tests. The ongoing legal battle raises questions about transparency, accountability, and the ethical responsibilities associated with conducting experiments on animals, particularly in the context of cutting-edge technologies like Neuralink.

Videos documenting the Neuralink experiments have also disappeared. According to documents acquired by Wired, the staff at the primate center mentioned a “tape” featuring the aforementioned monkey just hours before the euthanasia procedure. However, the university has not officially acknowledged the existence of such a recording.

Neuralink, whose collaboration with the university ended three years ago, had the privilege of managing its own footage and extracting it at its discretion. “They provided their own computing infrastructure, and they had their own network connection, and they have removed their computing infrastructure from the premises,” UC Davis told the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.

The chances of survival for some of these animals were distressingly low due to poor planning.

Macaques acquired by Neuralink from UC Davis’ colony underwent months and, in some cases, years of training before undergoing surgical procedures. However, the chances of survival for some of these animals were distressingly low due to poor planning. The company faced a shortage of essential personnel, needed more surgical technicians, and had no veterinary pathologist on staff.

Following the sacrifice of an animal, no records were created. A former employee alleges that Neuralink deliberately worked to keep records away from UC Davis, specifically aiming to shield them from public records requests. The researcher contends that the center focused on developing proprietary products for profit rather than advancing humanity’s collective knowledge.
