A nonprofit taxpayer watchdog organization filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against the U.S. Agriculture Department, seeking information about experiments during which thousands of cats have been euthanized at a facility in Maryland.

The White Coat Waste Project, a right-leaning advocacy group based in Virginia, filed the suit in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The group’s “mission is to unite animal-lovers and liberty-lovers to expose and end wasteful taxpayer-funded animal experiments,” according to the lawsuit.
