University of Florida

USDA information resulting from inspections at the University of Florida during September of 2002 reveal violations in a number of areas. Enclosures in three separate rooms housing dogs have " . . . excessive amounts of feces in them. The dogs in these enclosures are becoming soiled by the feces and also in some cases by the urine." Several food storage rooms are contaminated with mouse droppings.

On August 26, 2002 the university is cited for inadequate veterinary care due to an incident involving several primates. There are two squirrel monkeys who had been used in experiments involving food deprivation. However, they still seem to have been underweight even after the food restrictions were removed.
