Vivotecnia update

The Vivotecnia facilities have been temporarily closed by the Madrid Competent Authorities, after the release of an undercover video footage (statement in Spanish).

The closure will remain in place until the findings of an investigation are published, following call from a number of scientific organisations, including EARA, to issue an independent investigation into the situation.

Last week, EARA issued a statement condemning the clear failures in animal welfare training, practices and management, which has since been widely quoted in the media.

“We are glad to see that the Spanish authorities reacted quickly in response to this breach of animal welfare practices,” said Kirk Leech, EARA Executive Director.
