Eric Sandgren, UW's Research Animal Resource Center director, said the university has been transparent about the standing citation and posted the USDA report on the university website as soon as they learned that the appeal had failed.

He added that he did not think the citation should stand because appropriate steps have been taken and new guidelines were put in place after the accident.
"The bottom line is that, yes we made a mistake. That's been posted on our website for two weeks, right after we got the citation from USDA. I don't know why PETA all of a sudden is bringing it up," Sandgren said.
UW received two citations during the investigation in December and successfully appealed one, he added.
...
According to Sandgren, the report would have labeled it a "focused investigation" if it had been a response to PETA's second set of complaints filed last year.
"The USDA did not separate us," Sandgren said. "PETA is being very disingenuous.
...
"USDA did not find merit in any of the eight charges filed against us in the first PETA complaint," Sandgren said. "[UW has] received no citation from their second set of complaints against the university."
Sandgren said he has not seen the second sets of complaints filed by PETA, which is only available through filing an open information request.
PETA included five charges against the university in the second complaint alleging serious animal welfare violations, which are distinct from the previous allegations.
Sandgren said he has heard about the new complaints but cannot comment on the allegations before looking at the actual report.
"We filed [a request to obtain the report] in March but we haven't got it yet, you can imagine how frustrated we are," he said.
The USDA did not reply for comment as of press time.

Eric Sandgren, UW's animal research oversight director, said he is pleased with the USDA report as it confirms the university's initial response to dispute what they found to be "inaccurate" charges.

However, according to PETA's Associate Director of Laboratory Investigations Justin Goodman, the report only reflects poorly upon the university and the USDA as a federal agency.
"The USDA, like UW-Madison, apparently thinks it's acceptable to mutilate, deafen, starve, paralyze and decapitate cats, but PETA sees this violence for what it is - cruelty to animals," Goodman said in an email to The Badger Herald.
According to Sandgren, the USDA inspector evaluated the facilities, animals and the personnel, all in line with PETA's complaint letter.
Sandgren added the inspection focused on both the 2008 protocol, which the PETA complaint addressed, as well as the current 2012 protocol.
...
Sandgren said he expects PETA to continue with allegations against the university.
...
Sandgren acknowledged PETA's general goal to end animal research, adding although finding middle ground with animal rights activists like PETA will be difficult, efforts are being made.
"Given the way people in this country seem to be becoming more polarized, I think that [finding common ground] will be difficult," Sandgren said.
