PETA sues U.S. government over information about elephants with TB

(Reuters) – Animal rights activists have sued the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, seeking the release of data about elephants and tuberculosis because of the risk that the animals could spread the potentially deadly disease to other elephants as well as humans. The lawsuit, filed by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) on Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, seeks records under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) from the HHS’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) regarding TB in elephants.
