If Inotiv continues to do business with this shady Cambodian monkey farm, the company assumes even more legal risk and culpability. Inotiv failed to be forthcoming with its shareholders, or reveal any steps to be taken beyond site visits, about determining which of the unsold monkeys in its custody were laundered, or commit to sending all survivors to sanctuaries. PETA recently became an Inotiv shareholder, following the company’s closure of its beagle-breeding facility, in order to monitor Inotiv’s adherence to animal protection regulations, and we will be watching closely.
