An animal rights group has filed a federal complaint with the U.S. Department of Agriculture against the University of Florida.  

The complaint filed by Eleventh Hour for Animals alleges a “culture of negligence” in UF’s handling of lab animals, the Gainesville Sun reports.  The complaint stems from the euthanizing of a macaque monkey in 2010.
