Dozen protest UNR over alleged animal abuse

Posted: 7/17/2005 12:55 am

Alleged mistreatment of research animals at the University of Nevada, Reno and a research watchdog group naming the school’s animal facility the nation’s worst prompted a dozen people to demonstrate outside campus Saturday.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently found violations at UNR that included seven incidents of depriving animals of water, three incidents of animals being deprived of food or fed in an unsanitary way, three citations for inadequate veterinary care and six in which the university’s Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee failed to enforce the Animal Welfare Act. UNR was fined $11,400.

No university officials attended the demonstration, but Provost John Frederick said in a statement that UNR shares the concerns expressed and said there were no USDA findings of abuse. “The USDA noted areas of administrative and facilities noncompliance, and we have embraced and addressed these opportunities for improvement,” Frederick said.
