"Exposing the truth to wipe out animal experimentation"

Criminal Labs across the U.S. -- SAEN Declares Nationwide Scandal

The false sense of legitimacy that is often associated with animal experimentation comes from the regulatory framework which surrounds it. What the public isnt told is who the major violators of federal law are and how often they violate the Animal Welfare Act.

Since the majority of animal experimentation is funded by the National Institutes of Health with federal tax dollars and the often-muddled results are used to establish the supposed safety of drugs, the public has a right to know which laboratories are/arent following the laws. However, the USDA does little to publicize who the largest violators are.

Therefore, SAEN has undertaken a national campaign to expose the worst law-breakers and enlighten the public about how their safety is being endangered.  As a result of SAENs work, news stories across the nation have revealed that research laboratories are often criminal entities violating the Animal Welfare Act on a regular basis.  Some of the worst labs are (2005 statistics): 

     University of Pennsylvania (77 violations)

     University of Wisconsin (20 violations)

     Covance (42 violations in 2 labs)

     Harvard (32 violations in 2 labs)

     Charles River Laboratories (20 violations)

     Boehringer Ingelheim Pharm. (19 violations)

     Boston University (11 violations)

     Vanderbilt University (13 violations)

     Emory University (13 violations)

     Merck (8 violations)
