Animal Watch: Activists want USDA inspection reports back online
GRAND FORKS, ND (WDAZ-TV) – In last week’s Animal Watch, we told you about animal inspection reports disappearing from the federal department of agriculture's website.
This week, they're still gone. Now there's a message and a lawsuit. The department says the decision to remove the reports isn't final.
Science Magazine reports PETA and other animal welfare groups are suing the feds to get that info back online. They claim the government is hiding animal abusers and lawbreakers.
One note: The department says these changes were in effect before the new administration.
