Everett judge dismisses dead monkey case
EVERETT, Wash. - An Everett District Court judge has ruled against an animal rights group that wanted to bring a rarely used citizen's complaint against employees of an animal testing lab.
Judge Roger Fisher said Wednesday there isn't enough evidence to charge three former employees of the Everett lab, called SNBL USA.
The Everett Herald reports that Everett and Snohomish County prosecutors also declined to file animal cruelty charges.
The Monroe group Pasado's Safe Haven tried to bring a private criminal prosecution. It says the workers were reckless when they scalded a monkey to death in November of last year by sending it through a cage washer.
