Stop Breeding Beagles for Cruel Laboratory Experiments

Target: Planning Committee of East Riding Council, UK

Goal: Reject proposal to breed Beagles solely so they can be used for cruel and painful laboratory tests.

Bantin and Kingman Universal in the UK recently announced their proposal for breeding and raising Beagles for the express purpose of experimenting on the dogs. A similar proposal put forward by this company was denied before, making this their second attempt at trying to get permission to raise defenseless creatures only to perform life-threatening tests on them. The Planning Committee of East Riding Council rejected the earlier proposal on the basis that it was cruel in nature and an unnecessary practice. Demand that Bantin and Kingman Universal have their request shut down again, firmly sending the sign that animal cruelty in any form is not acceptable.

Bantin and Kingman Universal’s plan is pretty simple: breed Beagles in house, raise the dogs, and conduct horrifying tests on them until the animals are no longer useful for their projects. Last year alone more than 3,000 dogs in the UK were used in experiments. Beagles tend to be chosen over other dogs because they have an inherent sense of trust and passivity, making them the perfect target for testing. The animals are force-fed chemicals or have substances pumped into their veins to test reactions to different drugs and agricultural chemicals. Negative reactions are not uncommon and result in the little dogs becoming so sick that they die in pain, or are euthanized since they can no longer be tested upon.

No animal should grow up only seeing the inside of a lab where people are only there to poke, prod and test substances. These creatures deserve–at the very least–to have the chance to play with other animals or be loved by a family. Being born into Bantin and Kingman Universal’s laboratory guarantees a lifetime of chemical testing and cages, a practice which is inherently inhumane since dogs are not designed to serve only as testing subjects for humans. Demand a second rejection of Bantin and Kingman Universal’s proposal for in house breeding.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear East Riding Council,

I recently read about Bantin and Kingman Universal’s second proposal for an in house breeding program with Beagles. Seeing that their first proposal was already rejected, it is clear that what they are trying to do is simply inhumane and should not be allowed. Please shut down their second attempt and help protect the animals who cannot speak for themselves.

The majority of a testing dog’s life is spent being force-fed chemicals or having foreign substances pumped into veins as a group of lab workers look for any adverse reactions. As negative responses are not uncommon, these dogs will often die in pain or be euthanized since they are no longer useful to the company.

No animal should be bred for the express purpose of being caged and pumped full of experimental chemicals. Animals are beings as well, and deserve more than to be abused at the hands of humans.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  2. Barbaric and disgusting. NO animal species should be subject to the horror and pain of testing and experimentation.

  3. I say the bastards wanting to do this have the experiments done on them if they are so damn important.
    I am so disgusted with humans

  4. Dr Sol Myers says:

    Cosmic Law: any pain,neglect or death you inflict on an animal, you will in turn experience yourself. Get ready, Bantin and Kingman, you have created your own future, you inhuman bastards.

  5. Makes me feel ashamed to be part of the human race.
    Testing on animals is not the only way.
    It’s probably cheaper and easier.
    I wonder if the children of the people performing these experiments know what Mum and Dad are doing at work!
    They’d probably be heartbroken.
    Alternatives need to be found.

    This makes me sick. No animal should be used for experimentation. There is no excuse for doing such dispicable and barbaric thing.

  7. Watch the You-Tube undercover videos of lab experimenters giving a beagle an overdose of oxycontin and then petting the dog and trying to comfort the dog while he/she is violently sick and foaming at the mouth saying to him/her “Ohhhhh I know, I know….it’s going to be alright, you’re going to be o.k. then they take the dog out of the cage and kill him/her. Anyone with half a conscious will not be able to get through the whole video without being effected by the lab experimenters skulduggery bestowed onto the beagles and how badly they suffer from it.

    This Thanksgiving while these kind of people who abuse animals in such a catastrophe way while sitting at the table amongst their family, friends and PETS need to say a serious prayer and be very thankful that the kind of horrid abuse they had given to these trusting innocent lab beagles has not been given back in return to them. But just remember,… One Day, one day,….you will have to answer for your actions…..and you will be judged.

    “I expect to pass through the world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness I can show to any creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer it, for I shall not pass this way again.”

  8. Michael Guest says:

    No more experiments on animals, including beagles. This is cruel, and I want it to stop for good. Save them now.
