    Information on animal welfare disappears from USDA website

    " Information on the treatment of animals at thousands of laboratories, zoos, dog breeding groups and other facilities was suddenly removed from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's website Friday, The Washington Post reported.

    The decision was a result of "comprehensive review" over the last year, according to a statement by the USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. The removed information is now only accessible after filing a Freedom of Information Act request.

    “We remain equally committed to being transparent and responsive to our stakeholders’ informational needs, and maintaining the privacy rights of individuals with whom we come in contact,” the statement said.

    The documents removed included information on dog breeders, treatment of animals in circuses and other information that was previously readily available.
    Those records were frequently used by animal welfare advocates to monitor government regulation of animal treatment. Journalists have used the documents to expose violations at universities.

    The removal of the documents has raised concerns of animal welfare advocates. "

    aww the new administration rewriting everything
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.
