LSR ANNOUNCES INDICTMENTS
OF ANIMAL RIGHTS EXTREMISTS
Millstone, New Jersey, May 26, 2004 – Life Sciences Research, Inc. (OTCBB:

leaders of the animal rights campaign against our Company were arrested

These indictments are in keeping with this nation's long tradition of standing up to bullies and demonstrate the United States' continued determination to insure the safety of its people. We welcome these actions, and we are grateful for the work being done by Department of Justice and the tremendous effort and support we have seen by the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force and other law enforcement agencies that have worked together on these investigations.
