Abstract:
We are extending the comment period for our notice of a petition for rulemaking received by the Secretary of Agriculture. The petition, sponsored by several petitioners, requests that the Secretary amend the definition of ``animal'' in the Animal Welfare Act regulations to remove the current exclusion of rats and mice bred for use in research and birds and ``grant such other relief as the Secretary deems just and proper.'' This extension will provide interested persons with additional time to prepare and submit comments on the petition.
