UCSF to settle allegations of animal mistreatment

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The University of California at San Francisco agreed to pay $92,500 to settle allegations it mistreated research animals, including penning them in dirty cages, overbreeding monkeys and not providing enough anesthesia to a sheep during surgery.

In settling the case Friday, the university did not admit to any wrongdoing.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture had charged the university last year with 61 animal welfare violations committed between 2001 and 2003.
