UW Research Animal Resources Center Director Eric Sandgren said the U.S. Department of Agriculture issued the university 44 citations between 2007 and 2013. Sandgren said the agency apparently decided not to pursue 37 of the violations; the settlement involves seven citations that include allegations of euthanizing a dog without notifying the supervising veterinarian and accidentally burning a cat. Sandgren said the cat fully recovered.

He said the university signed the settlement on Feb. 18.

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.
The Badger Herald ยท PETA, university continue to stand at odds over USDA report.
