(US/tx) Animal rights group complains of injured monkeys at Alice research supplier

ALICE -- A group that opposes laboratory research on animals filed a
complaint Monday with federal regulators alleging mistreatment of
monkeys at a drug development company's facility in Alice.

The group, Stop Animal Exploitation Now, cited records from the
University of California in San Francisco showing that primates
shipped from the facility arrived with injuries including muscle
wasting, missing fingers and damaged ears.

Covance, the global drug development service company that owns the
facility, responded with a prepared statement saying its U.S.
facilities have undergone more than 40 unannounced federal inspections
in four years with few instances of noncompliance. The U.S. Department
of Agriculture is the federal agency that inspects animal facilities.
