PETA Calls for Company to Disclose Its Efforts to Stop Violating Animal Welfare Laws
For Immediate Release:May 7, 2012

Princeton, N.J. -- Dressed in all black, wearing monkey
masks, and holding signs that read, "Covance: Dozens of Cruelty
Violations" and "Covance Poisons Animals," members of PETA, a
Covance stockholder, will gather outside the Princeton Marriott as Covance
shareholders arrive for the company's annual meeting on Tuesday. Inside the
meeting, a PETA representative will speak in support of the group's shareholder
resolution, which calls on the company—which has a long history of animal
welfare violations—to issue an animal report disclosing its efforts to correct
these violations and to ensure future compliance with animal welfare laws:
Date: Tuesday, May 8
Place: Princeton Marriott, 100 College Rd. E. (near the intersection with W. City
"Shareholders have the right to know what efforts
Covance is making to ensure that no more animals are left to freeze in
inadequate cages or suffer from untreated medical conditions," says Kathy
Guillermo, vice president of PETA's Laboratory Investigations Division.
"Just this year, Covance was cited for housing a monkey in isolation for
nearly eight months, without the companionship of another monkey—which is required by
law—and for allowing
another monkey to get tangled in a device in his cage and die."
Following PETA's 2005 undercover
investigation of Covance, in which employees were documented striking
monkeys, screaming at them and throwing them against cages and dogs were found
to be inadequately housed and exercised, the U.S. Department of Agriculture
(USDA) cited and fined Covance for multiple serious violations of federal law.
In recent years, Covance has been cited by the USDA for leaving dogs to suffer
from dental disease, keeping monkeys in outdoor cages that were so inadequate
in frigid weather that the monkeys sustained frostbite, and failing to meet the
psychological needs of primates. One monkey was so distressed that he
ceaselessly paced in backward circles in his cage.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
