Interview with Michael Budkie, founder of the Ohio based group Stop Animal Exploitation NOW! (SAEN) claims dogs were put through painful, life threatening experiments at UT. See June 8, 2011 Press Release - Illegal Experiments at UT Knoxville endanger dogs; Watchdog Group Demands Fine.
Veterinarians and staff at UT have long been hailed heroes to abused animals, like a Knox County dog who was dragged behind a car by her owner.
Healing and rehabilitation is their specialty, but SAEN is accusing them of carelessness and negligence.
"There were some, actually several apparently unapproved, and therefore illegal surgical procedures being performed on dogs," said SAEN co-founder Michael Budkie.
