Lynchburg, Va. – Within the newest written order issued within the U.S. Division of Justice’s (DOJ) civil case in opposition to Envigo, Senior U.S. District Courtroom Decide Norman Ok. Moon denied the corporate’s second try to realize permission to satisfy a sister entity’s contracts for roughly 2,100 beagles. Decide Moon wrote, “When the Courtroom issued its Injunction …, it gave Envigo no extra and at least what it requested for. Which was to be permitted to satisfy ‘Envigo’s contractual obligations to its clients.’”

Accordingly, the DOJ and Envigo submitted a plan for the Humane Society of the US to take away “all” roughly 4,000 surviving canine from Envigo’s Cumberland, Virginia, facility in order that they are often adopted. At this time, in an oral order, Decide Moon accredited the plan, which requires the corporate to pay $100 per canine—and $150 per canine nursing a litter youthful than 8 weeks—to assist defray shelters’ prices in adopting out the animals. A listening to on whether or not this plan will likely be included into Decide Moon’s preliminary injunction in opposition to Envigo—or a settlement between the DOJ and Envigo—is anticipated inside 10 days.

“PETA’s groundbreaking undercover investigation helped spark a historic domino impact of state and federal legislative and law-enforcement motion that paved the way in which for these canine’ independence and this canine jail’s closure,” says PETA Senior Vice President of Cruelty Investigations Daphna Nachminovitch. “Envigo’s surviving victims will quickly be given the chance to have what each canine deserves—the liberty to take pleasure in life, love, and respect for his or her individuality as members of a household dwelling.”

In responding to Envigo’s newest efforts to promote 2,200 of the canine in Cumberland for experimentation, the DOJ notes that the corporate “try[ed] to downplay the truth that it … desires to satisfy orders of one other Inotiv subsidiary …. These contracts have been entered into by a separate subsidiary, which isn’t a celebration to this case, is registered as a distinct entity with the Virginia Secretary of State, and seems to have its personal Animal Welfare Act seller license. For Envigo RMS to counsel that it doesn’t matter which enterprise entity is social gathering to the contract is puzzling at greatest.”

PETA—whose motto reads, partially, that “animals are usually not ours to experiment on”—performed a seven-month undercover investigation into Envigo. Broadcast-quality video footage from the group’s investigation is offered right here, and pictures from the investigation can be found right here.
