Six Months After the Release of PETA's Investigation, District Attorney Frank Parrish Has Yet to File Cruelty Charges Against Laboratory Employees Responsible for Animal Suffering
For Immediate Release:March 17, 2011

Corapeake, N.C. — Nearly one year after receiving evidence and six months after the release of PETA's undercover investigation documenting the malicious abuse and severe neglect of dogs, cats, and rabbits inside Corapeake-based Professional Laboratory and Research Services, Inc. (PLRS)—District Attorney Frank Parrish, with whom PETA first met in April 2010, still has not filed cruelty-to-animals charges against the employees and laboratory management responsible for the suffering, abuse, and neglect of hundreds of animals. PETA has now posted an action alert on its popular website asking citizens to contact Parrish and respectfully urge him to bring charges against those responsible for abusing animals and leaving them to suffer at PLRS.
"PETA's goal is to ensure that those who kicked, roughly handled, abused, and cursed at animals are held accountable for the horrible suffering that they caused," says PETA Vice President Daphna Nachminovitch. "The DA has had the evidence for almost a year—it's time for justice to be served."
PLRS shut its doors and surrendered more than 200 dogs and cats to animal shelters and rescue groups just one week after PETA filed a 70-page formal complaint and hours of video footage with the U.S. Department of Agriculture alleging violations of the Animal Welfare Act. The USDA's investigation is ongoing. PETA submitted similar evidence to Parrish's office in April, June, and September of 2010.
