Jeremy Beckham, researcher with PETA's Laboratory Investigations Department, talks to Emil Guillermo about how universities have been conducting strange sexually perverse experiments on animals. Some of the tests have been stopped, but a big project remains at the University of Michigan. 

Some examples: Sexually stimulating hamsters after cutting holes in their skulls, cutting the skin off live mice's penises and then injecting them with chemicals, burning the brains of female mice and then measuring how interested they were in sniffing the urine of males, and removing rats' ovaries before injecting the animals with an antidepressant.

All were supported by the U.S. National Institutes of Health until PETA activism helped end the funding.

The big one that remains is run by Mount Sinai Hospital's Eric Nestler at the University of Michigan.

It continues to get taxpayer money to support his twisted work.
