USDA AWA reports

Animal cruelty & welfare violations

According to a June 9, 2010 USDA inspection report, a dog died after staff failed to provide veterinary care for 3 days after a botched surgery. The USDA cited Princeton repeatedly incidents of inadequate veterinary care and finadequate functioning by the Institutional Animal Care & Use Committee (IACCU).

Princeton was also the target of a scathing USDA inspection report of June 23, 2010. In 13 separate citations, the USDA focused on a highly invasive project which deprives primates of water and implants devices into the skull. Princeton was cited for inadequate functioning of the IACCU Committee six times in the USDA document, most related to the same primate experiment. Researchers failed to use approved anesthetic methods, performed unapproved surgical procedures and failed to administer post-op pain relievers properly. Princeton also received repeated citations for inadequate veterinary care, filing fraudulent reports and inadequate housing and facilities.[2]
