FORT COLLINS (AP) - A Fort Collins company that conducts medical experiments on animals has been fined $679 following a federal inspection prompted by the deaths of three dogs.

The Coloradoan reports ( the U.S. Department of Agriculture fined Care Research LLC in March for several alleged violations of the Animal Welfare Act. The USDA says an inspection in December 2011 found that three beagles died in May 2011, two days after an automatic watering system was found to have been malfunctioning. Rajan Bawa of Care Research says the dogs had been released from a research study a week earlier.

Bawa says it isn't known how the dogs died. He has said effects observed on the dogs weren't explainable by dehydration or water deprivation.
