Eric Sandgren, the director of UW's Animal Resource Center, said the picture on the Metro buses is from a pilot study that involved placing cochlear implants into the cat and determining how well that allowed the cat to hear.

Sandgren said the study involved an expert on cochlear procedures and an investigator who ensured the process was done correctly.
Sandgren said PETA's claims that the study involved unjustifiable animal cruelty and that the laboratory was unsuccessful in publishing their findings are "false, and PETA knows they're false."
"There are investigative reports published online by the Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare which state that all cats were found to be in good clinical condition, and none showed signs of lesions, pain, distress or adverse responses," Sandgren said.
Sandgren said the links on the page provide videos of UW studies and additional reports, which clarify the hearing research they do in the laboratories and why they do it.
Sandgren said PETA has been accusing UW of violating laws for more than a year, but none of their claims have any evidence and have never been validated.
"PETA found a picture they can use in a fundraiser campaign and they're just going for it," Sandgren said.

Eric Sandgren, UW's animal research oversight director, said he has examined all the accusations but asserted PETA was making false interpretations and taking techniques out of context.

In response to the anesthesia accusations, Sandgren said there was a misunderstanding in procedure and ] the mask was taken off to use a different form of anesthesia that is inserted into the lungs.
Sandgren added he has asked university veterinarians to look at each claim made by PETA and assess its validity. He said all claims have been false, and had any been true, they would address them and make changes accordingly.
"I don't mind anybody pointing out things that we might be doing wrong," Sandgren said.
Sandgren said the university has changed how they look at justifications, as incidents in question date back to 2008. He said experiments have been funded by the National Institutes of Health for 30 years and provide excellent research.
UW's next step involves an investigation from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which the university will prepare for, Sandgren said.
