Loyola University's Sad Record on Animal Treatment

Stop Animal Exploitation Now (SAEN) has uncovered that Loyola University has had 22 violations for their treatment of animals..
“The negligence at Loyola had been fatal to five dogs and 7 rabbits, and others suffered without veterinary care” said Michael A. Budkie, A.H.T., Executive Director, SAEN. “This facility must face serious consequences,” he said. One experiment involving dogs had a 44 percent mortality rate. Reporting errors included inaccurate reporting of experiments involving dogs. The Animal Welfare Act violations occurred during three consecutive inspections from March of 2006 - November 2007. The Loyola Animal Care and Use Committee racked up 18 infractions. One of the violations was fraudulent reporting and two other related to inadequate veterinary care.
That's especially bad when Bush's USDA actually finds violations. Or maybe it's because they aren't corporate enough. If it was Haliburton, they'd let them get away with using puppies for target practice.
