Mehmet Oz proves once again that he shouldn't be a senator, a doctor or should be allowed near animals.

There are more than enough reasons why no one should be voting for Mehmet Oz for anything, much less senator. But now we have one of the biggest reasons he shouldn't even be considered to be part of a decent society or polite company. He has a history of abusing dogs:

In case you couldn't make it out, the information is from Sourcewatch and sums up why he's not fit to be classified as anything but a monster:

In 2004, complaints about Dr. Mehmet Oz’s dog experiments were cited in a report from an internal investigation into allegations of poor animal care made by Dr. Catherine Dell’Orto, a post-doctoral veterinarian. [5] See also individual reports of Dr. Oz's dog experiments. [6]

According to the report, in Dr. Oz's lab at Columbia University "highly invasive and stressful experiments" on dogs were performed without a "humane end point." [7]

The Animal Welfare Act violations detailed in the reported included a litter of whelped puppies killed by painful cardiac injection:

"The screams of these puppies could be heard through closed doors. All of these puppies, lying in a plastic garbage bag, were killed in the presence of their litter mates."[8]

Subsequent applications for grants to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) by Dr. Oz have been denied.[9] In 2004, Columbia paid $2,000 in fines to the USDA. [9]

It is beyond me how anyone could possibly be that cruel and cold towards any living creature as to actually torture a dog the way that Oz did to those puppies. I'm glad that NIH shut him off from funds completely and forever. Too bad they couldn't put a lifetime restraining order on him from all animals, including people.

By the way, it's well known that John Fetterman is a dog owner and loves his furbaby.

I can't help but think that it would be wonderful if someone set up a cause similar like Dogs Against Oz like they did against Mitt Romney.
