SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (KGO) -- A national animal rights organization is targeting a Santa Cruz company for what it calls serious violations of the Animal Welfare Act. The director of that watchdog group claims a federal inspection shows sick and malnourished animals suffering because of the company's neglect.

USDA inspectors took pictures of sick and malnourished goats at a facility run by Santa Cruz Biotechnology. Michael Budkie, executive director of Stop Animal Exploitation Now!, got them through a Freedom of Information request. He showed the photos during a news conference in Santa Cruz to expose what he calls serious violations of the Animal Welfare Act.

"If a private individual allowed animals to suffer this way in their own care, you would be in jail," said Budkie.
