Last week—following criticism from bipartisan Congress members – citizens, press, and advocacy groups like the White Coat Waste Project – a nonprofit that seeks to eliminate cruel wasteful and unnecessary taxpayer-funded animal testing—the U.S. Department of Agriculture began to reverse course on its unjustifiable animal welfare database blackout.
It started by restoring documents about government and other animal laboratories.
This is a crucial resource but we’re still fighting systemic government transparency failures about $15 billion in wasteful taxpayer-funded experimentation on dogs and other animals.
Months before the recent USDA purge—a scandal first exposed by WCW—we released ‘Spending to Death’ a report documenting cruel and unnecessary government dog experiments and a troubling abundance of secrecy about the practice and what it costs.
