Elon Musk’s Neuralink, a medical device company, is facing a federal probe for potential violation of animal welfare policies amid complaints that animal testing is being rushed to achieve results after missing several deadlines. This comes days after the world’s richest man said he is comfortable implanting a Neuralink brain chip in himself.

In all, the company has killed about 1,500 animals, including more than 280 sheep, pigs, rats, mice and monkeys, following experiments since 2018, according to reviewed records. Several Neuralink employees have flagged that the number of animal deaths is higher than it needs to be for reasons related to Elon Musk’s demands to “speed research”.
