Univ. of Utah Ends Shelter Purchases for Vivisection

SALT LAKE CITY -- The University of Utah is no longer buying dogs and cats for research from a Lindon animal shelter, U. officials said Tuesday in response to statements from an animal rights group claiming credit for ending the practice.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals issued a press release Tuesday saying that its campaign against the U. -- including newspaper ads, a lawsuit, a billboard on I-15 -- had pushed the school to stop purchasing animals from the North Utah Valley Animal Shelter and to adopt different research methods that don't require dogs or cats.
