As long as there are legally binding regulations that require animals to suffer in labs it is crucial to at least not add any further cruelty to their plight. But the agencies who are supposed to enforce these supervisions are not following through.
“Despite violating the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) again and again, many animal research facilities face few consequences. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), charged with enforcing the AWA, must take stronger action.
The Santa Cruz Biotechnology (SCBT) animal research facility has too long a history of alleged and actual Animal Welfare Act (AWA) violations, resulting in needless additional pain for animals already suffering in labs. For years, NEAVS has called on the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), charged with enforcing the AWA, to revoke the lab’s license. We would also like to thank our supporters for writing letters. But business continues as usual.”
