Further to the earlier stories about PETA accusing Michael Jackson of mistreating and neglecting his animals at Neverland.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture sent an inspector to Neverland, in response to the PETA complaint.
Darby Holladay, a spokesman with the USDA in Washington D.C., is quoted as saying:
"I'm unaware of any violations of the Animal Welfare Act at Neverland."
Lisa Wathne, PETA's captive exotic animals specialist, said that they did not try to confirm the tabloid reports before making its complaint.
"Because Neverland is not open to the public, it's very difficult to get information about the place. But when we hear accusations like that - and many accusations - we have to take note.".
