OU Facing Accusations of Electrocuting Dogs for Research

From 5NewsOnline.com, Tuesday, October 8, 2013

An animal rights group wants the University of Oklahoma to pay a hefty fine for their treatment of dogs at a research lab.

“Stop Animal Exploitation Now” (SAEN) is outraged at a USDA inspection report from August that indicates OU researchers were using a 9-volt battery applied to the dogs’ hearts to euthanize them at the OU Health Sciences Center.

The report also says OUHSC did not use an approved anesthesia on the dogs during research.
