Animal rights group files federal complaint against University of Missouri

From ABC17News.com, March 16, 2021

COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)

Stop Animal Exploitation Now! has filed an official complaint against the University of Missouri for alleged violations of the Animal Welfare Act with the USDA.

The allegations come from two incidents where five dogs died and two piglets went missing.

The complaint refers to two University of Missouri reports obtained by the group through Freedom of Information Act.

The dogs reportedly died due to warm humid conditions.

The piglets disappeared after falling through a hole in the floor where a trough was.

The organization alleges that since the University of Missouri should have the most severe action allowable under the Animal Welfare Act and immediately begin the process of issuing the maximum fine of $10,000 per infraction, per animal.
