Research Lab Closes Its Doors

Undercover investigation by PETA causes research lab to shut down and surrender 200 animals.

Professional Laboratory and Research Services Inc., a North Carolina lab, officially stopped doing research Wednesday, September 15, one week after People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) released a video of animal abuse at the lab and submitted a complaint to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). As a result, the lab is surrendering more than 200 cats and dogs. The PETA investigation revealed cruelty to the animals as performed toxicity tests were performed on them for pharmaceutical companies. Workers at the lab allegedly physically and verbally abused the animals, and PETA reports that no veterinarian was kept on staff. Officials are currently trying to find homes for the cats and dogs.
