Utah Ends Forced Pound Seizures
APRIL 4, 2010
Previously, they were required to allow these "pound seizures." Now animal shelters have the right to refuse to release animals to the University of Utah for animal research. Davis County Animal Shelter, a key supplier to the University of Utah, has already ceased this practice. Good. I wish the whole practice had been outlawed, but at least now shelters can respond to public pressure.
