From "New Scientist" Magazine WAY TO GO!!!!
Animal experimenters in the US, beware: you may find yourselves facing
criminal charges for simply doing your job. That's what has happened to nine
staff at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, who could go to jail or pay heavy
fines for carrying out decompression experiments on sheep for the US navy.
Some sheep died in the experiments, which aimed to find new ways to save divers
from decompression sickness, otherwise known as "the bends". Antivivisectionists
at the Alliance for Animals in Madison and at People for the Ethical Treatment
of Animals discovered that Wisconsin has a law banning the killing of animals
The AFA and PETA filed charges, and on 2 June circuit judge Amy Smith backed the
animal-rights groups' claim. She concluded that the researchers "intentionally
or negligently violated Wisconsin law", and so should face criminal charges.
Smith dismissed the university's defence that the research project was exempt
from the law.
