U Conn Found Guilty of Shocking Animal Abuses

The University of Connecticut has admitted to more than 50 violations of the Animal Welfare Act, agreeing to pay $129,500 in fines and overhaul its research operations. The settlement follows nine months of negotiations with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, whose inspectors uncovered abuses including improper care and inhumane deaths of numerous animals. Several rabbits, whose spinal cords were operated on during experiments, did not receive adequate veterinary attention. Instead of utilizing nonanimal research methods, the university plans to spend $20 million streamlining and reorganizing its animal experimentation facilities.
