Urge Eric Pickles to Reject Application for New Beagle Breeding Unit.

More than 4,000 beagles suffered & died in experiments in the UK in 2009, tens of thousands more were used worldwide. A company which sells beagles into the vivisection trade has recently applied for planning permission to build a new facility in Yorkshire. Please write to the local council & ask them to refuse permission. This summer, more than 2,000 PETA supporters contacted East Riding of Yorkshire Council to ask them to turn down an application by B&K Universal (which is owned by Marshall Farms, a huge US supplier of animals for experiments) to demolish existing housing for dogs at Grimston near Hull & erect new & larger breeding facilities. The council turned down the application, but the company has appealed & their appeal will now be considered by Eric Pickles, Secretary of State for Communities & Local Government. The government has pledged to "work to reduce" the numbers of animals used in experiments: giving the green light to this factory farm for dogs would therefore be not only immoral but also against their own policies. A decision by Mr Pickles on the application is expected within weeks. Please contact him to let the government know how much opposition there is to breeding dogs for vivisection & to demand that he turn down the appeal. Send your message via the online form using the link provided, thanks.
