Rats, mice, birds, amphibians and other animals have been excluded from
coverage by the Animal Welfare Act. Therefore research Children's Health
Care of St. Paul, St. Paul, MN reports do not include these animals. As
a result of this situation, a blank report, or one with few animals
listed, does not mean that a Children's Health Care of St. Paul, St.
Paul, MN has not performed experiments on non-reportable animals. A
blank form does mean that the Children's Health Care of St. Paul, St.
Paul, MN in question has not used covered animals (primates, dogs, cats,
rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, pigs, sheep, goats, etc.). Rats and mice
alone are believed to comprise over 90% of the animals used in
experimentation. Therefore the majority of animals used at research
facilities are not even counted.
