A veterinarian has fired by UM, Mount Sinai after speaking out on alleged animal cruelty, reports the Sun-Sentinel. "The staff mistreated mice, rabbits and sheep used for testing asthma drugs and other experiments. Mice were stuffed into cages so crowded that one scratched half its face off on the bars, she said in her lawsuit. In another incident, she said, a sheep was left unattended on a breathing machine that malfunctioned, preventing the animal from exhaling and blowing it up like a balloon."

"For a year I kept my mouth shut. I just tried to help. But it got worse and worse." Well... we can all rest easy in the knowledge that it's an isolated incident, right? I mean, animal testing wouldn't just be based on the routine abuse of animals, would it?
