West Lafayette, Indiana – Please see the next assertion from PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo concerning Inotiv’s fiscal yr 2022 report, launched yesterday, and continued points with importing monkeys to be used in laboratories:

Inotiv could also be in bother with shareholders for trying to color a rosy image of a darkish actuality: 1 / 4 of the corporate’s income in 2022 got here from imports of Cambodian monkeys, whom the Worldwide Union for Conservation of Nature listed as endangered in July 2022 and whom the CDC acknowledged as a supply of a lethal pathogen. Inotiv additionally didn’t advise its shareholders that it’s one of many at present unindicted co-conspirators within the U.S. Division of Justice lawsuit in opposition to Cambodian authorities officers and workers of its Cambodian monkey provider. Trade insiders report that they will’t inform if the paperwork on imported monkeys has been falsified. If Inotiv continues to do enterprise with this shady Cambodian monkey farm, the corporate assumes much more authorized threat and culpability. Inotiv didn’t be forthcoming with its shareholders, or reveal any steps to be taken past website visits, about figuring out which of the unsold monkeys in its custody had been laundered, or decide to sending all survivors to sanctuaries. PETA just lately grew to become an Inotiv shareholder, following the corporate’s closure of its beagle-breeding facility, with the intention to monitor Inotiv’s adherence to animal safety rules, and we will probably be watching carefully.
