Legends of chimeras have existed throughout history. Centaurs, mermaids, and reptilian humanoids illustrate the literature of our distant predecessors. However, society is now standing at an unprecedented crossroads. Science fiction and reality are merging into an indistinguishable sector. In late May, the United States Senate made headlines after vetoing legislation prohibiting animal-human hybrids. Lawmakers gave mad scientists the green light to produce unconscionable breeds. Regardless of legality, these taboo Frankenstein-like fusions have taken place behind closed doors for decades. Here’s a look at some of the horrifying experiments executed by governments worldwide.
Humans with Animal Testicles
Inmates at California’s San Quentin Penitentiary underwent heinous surgical procedures. Dr. Leo Stanley wanted to reduce criminal behavior and sterilize test subjects. To achieve his diabolical goal he intentionally mutilated patients’ scrotums. Unsuspecting prisoners had their testicles removed without any anesthetic. Genitalia from pigs, sheep, and goats were attached to the maimed convicts. Over 10,000 men received these gruesome surgeries— countless died from complications.
