Dr. Alka Chandna, VP for PETA's Laboratory Investigations Department talks to Emil Guillermo about the abuses found at the esteemed Cleveland Clinic. A PETA investigator went undercover at the Lerner College of Medicine there and found numerous examples like mice with holes drilled into their heads without pain relief and dead mice in crowded cages. The National Institutes of Health now says it will investigate after it received PETA's 42-page complaint last week. Chandna explains that the Animal Welfare Act exempts mice, but another regulation can apply and threaten the Cleveland Clinic's federal funding that amounts to $100 million.
