Per the Salt Lake Tribune, these are some of the allegations....
*Failed to ensure that experiments minimized discomfort, distress and pain to the animals. In one case, up to 17 kittens from three litters died or were euthanized -- with no experiment data generated -- after injections to induce hydrocephalus.
» Discouraged the filing of health status reports to staff veterinarians -- "even when animals were clearly in distress.''
» Failed to provide adequate housing and management for animals that, in some instances, led to unnecessary stress, pain, injury or death.
» Failed to provide minimal enrichment for animals -- companionship for monkeys, balls for pigs, paper towels for mice -- to reduce emotional stress.
Certainly a case to follow.
