Animal Testing Lab Surrendering Animals after Investigation

This was good news from an investigation by PETA one week after they released the results of their undercover investigation of a North Carolina–based contract animal testing facility, Professional Laboratory and Research Services, Inc. (PLRS). A complaint was also filed with the USDA and now PLRS is surrendering almost 200 dogs and dozens of cats and closing the lab. I have posed the question about what will become of the rabbits. They were also victims of abuse. Peta noted on their website that this is "the first time that a laboratory has been forced to surrender animals and close under pressure on the heels of a PETA investigation and while facing a formal USDA investigation."
