BUSTED!

In response to a PETA undercover investigation that documented widespread abuse and systemic neglect of cats, dogs, and rabbits at Professional Laboratory and Research Services, Inc. (PLRS), in Corapeake, N.C., a grand jury has indicted four individuals who worked at PLRS on 14 FELONY cruelty-to-animals charges.

This is the FIRST TIME in U.S. history that workers have faced felony cruelty charges for their treatment of animals in a lab and only the second ever criminal prosecution of cruelty to animals used in labs; the first was PETA's 1981 Silver Spring monkeys case.

says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk.

"If someone hits, kicks, throws or neglects animals, it's a crime, wherever it happens. These charges are a reminder that nobody—not even laboratory employees—is above the law."

In other words: PICK ON SOMEONE YOUR OWN SIZE!

It's the law bitches!
