PETA complains about animal use in CU-Denver labs

DENVER — People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has filed complaints with federal officials seeking fines and the revocation of federal grants awarded to the University of Colorado Denver, which it accuses of animal-welfare violations.

PETA has told the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the National Institutes of Health that in the past few years, some animals in CU labs underwent surgery without pain relief, and one worker broke a rabbit’s back while restraining it but still used it in an experiment before it died.

CU spokeswoman Jacque (JACK-ee) Montgomery tells The Denver Post the school has addressed problems and reported the incidents to the proper oversight committee or government agency.
