Animal Rights Group Wants Creighton University to Be Fined
From USNews.com, September 12, 2018

An animal rights watchdog group wants regulators to fine Creighton University for problems in one of its animal research projects.

Ohio-based Stop Animal Exploitation Now said Wednesday that it had filed a formal complaint with the U.S. Department of Agriculture asking for the maximum fine of $10,000 per violation to be imposed.

Creighton officials said in a letter to regulators earlier this year that corrective measures were taken after the university discovered some incomplete records and instances of protocol not being followed.

Creighton officials didn't immediately respond to a message Wednesday.

Michael Budkie with the animal rights group says the maximum fine is warranted because Creighton found other violations in 2016.
