NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ A former Yale University researcher who says her laboratory fish were poisoned to death and her career was threatened is suing the university and two former colleagues.

Magdalena Koziol was a postdoctoral researcher who studied zebrafish at Yale’s School of Medicine in 2011 and 2012. She says a lab colleague poisoned her fish and the lab supervisor threatened to destroy her career if she didn’t keep quiet.

The New Haven Register reports  that Koziol filed the lawsuit in New Haven Superior Court last month and is seeking unspecified damages from Yale, the lab colleague and supervisor.

Yale officials called Koziol’s allegations “distorted” and vowed to fight the lawsuit.

Koziol left Yale last year and moved to Cambridge, England. Her lawyer says it’s not clear why the fish were poisoned.
