Bristol Myers Negligence kills another animal; Watchdog Group Releases Federal Report

PRINCETON/TRENTON, NJ – Bristol Myers Squibb, headquartered in Princeton (NJ), has killed another animal through negligence, as disclosed in a USDA report obtained today by SAEN
 
This report discloses that an animal was negligently killed in the Bristol Myers lab on December 17, 2011.  The report discloses that the animal was left unattended while restrained during a medical procedure and died.
 
This same facility has also killed a monkey through negligence during cage sterilization, literally boiling the animal alive.  This incident was disclosed in a USDA inspection report dated 8-3-11.
 
Research Watchdog Organization, SAEN (Stop Animal Exploitation Now), filed an official complaint with the USDA over the previous incident and will do so shortly regarding this most recent animal death.
 
“It is time for the Eastern Region of the USDA to take meaningful action against this lab and others that have killed animals horribly,” said Michael A. Budkie, A.H.T., Executive Director, SAEN.  “This part of the USDA is literally letting labs get away with murder.”
 
The USDA inspection report is available upon request from SAEN.
