UC Davis accused of falsifying info about lab animals

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

An animal rights group is accusing UC Davis of cooking the books. Stop Animal Exploitation (SAEN) accuses the university of falsifying records and even deleting information about the treatment of its research animals.

SAEN says a Department of Agriculture investigation found 15 incidents of traumatic injuries to a single primate, but public records do not indicate that.

UC Davis says all of its animals are treated well and are in excellent health and it is appealing the Department of Agriculture's assessment.
