Nothing to Hide?: Animal Welfare Violations at University of California, Los Angeles laboratories, August 2010 – December 2012
This report details publicly accessible information regarding animal welfare violations committed by the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) between August 2010 and December 2012. According to citation details provided by the Animal Plant and Health Inspection Service (APHIS), an agency of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), UCLA routinely disregards the most basic guidelines of animal care.
A Pattern of Abuse: Animal Welfare Violations in University of California laboratories, August 2010 – June 2013
This report details citations for animal welfare violations that schools in the University of California (UC) system received from the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), a division of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), between August 2010 and June 2013. These citations indicate confirmed violations of the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) found during inspections by APHIS of animal experimentation facilities at UC campuses. This report underestimates the total number of violations because any violation that a University contests remains confidential while it is being appealed, and many of these currently confidential violations will eventually be confirmed violations of the AWA.
