New details on the fight over Texas Tech doing medical testing on cats bought from Odessa Animal Control.

P.E.T.A. filed a complaint with the U.S.D.A. about it on Friday morning.

Tech's medical school buys several cats from Odessa Animal Control each year for students to practice respiratory procedures.

P.E.T.A. claims those procedures are inhumane and a violation of the animal welfare act.

NewsWest 9 spoke with the City of Odessa several weeks ago when the story first surfaced.

Officials say they're not aware of any abuse and plan to continue their contract with Texas Tech.
