So let me see, there was an accident due to a systems failure and negligence by two employees at Charles River that resulted in the deaths of thirty two monkeys. Charles River reported the accident to the USDA who started an investigation, and eventually fined CR several thousand pounds. In the meawhile CR fired one of the employees who was responsible and disciplined another, and changed their systems to prevent such an accident ever happening again. I suspect that the modest fine reflected the USDA's awareness of the steps CR had already taken to make sure the accident is never repeated.
I wish hospitals could respond so well to such SNAFUs!
Now why would a worker fired for sexually harassing coworkers want to make accusations against their former employer, could they possibly be out for revenge? First there was "going postal" now we have "going PeTA".

This is very cruel. Anyone who would do this is capable of doing anything. Hope they are not working in a daycare center or hospital. May who is responsible suffer the fires of hell. This was a henious, deliberate act, just like a wronged boyfriend killing his girlfriends child. No exception for this kind of cruelty in any form of life.
