Translation......

Hundreds stranded Beagles: closes Swedish farm and wants to sell dogs to laboratories rather than to convey animal friends!
Stand: Januar 2013
.

Save the dogs before Labortod!
Although the breeding facility for "laboratory beagles" in Swedish Örkelljunga to be closed, threatening over 300 dogs that are there currently still held captive, death in cruel experiments. Instead, the remaining dogs in loving families to teach, plans AstraZeneca, the pharmaceutical company in charge of selling the animals to research laboratories such as the notorious British HLS. Help the dog and appeal here to the Board of AstraZeneca to release the beagles for mediation

It is our duty to prevent suffering and abuse of our fellow creatures. Created in the "image" of God means to emulate our Creator, who walked among us in benevolence. Dominion meant to walk among and tame. Do not accept English mistranslations of the Hebrew Bible {Tanach}. God cares for His creatures and so should we. We are all endowed with living souls by the very breath of God. "A righteous man knows the soul of his animal" - Proverbs 12:10. These sadists have no place in Heaven or on earth.

Humans can explore space and map DNA. Surely we can and must do the right thing for these beagles. We don't have to kill, cage, and/or abuse defenseless animals. Abuse and inhumane treatment of all species finds a home in every country. We must each do as much as possible to expose and stop inhumane treatment of animals including lab testing too. Sufficient pressure (thousands signed the petition) was put on the military to stop testing on chimpanzees that they finally retiring theirs to a animal retreat for animals used for testing. Time to appreciate what we have accomplished while work goes on. Congratulations CARE2. Shared and tweeted this petition.

For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

Sorry, but Cher's translation is not good. Let me rather copy the text of the petition, which I have just signed:

I recently learnt that AstraZeneca is closing its breeding facility in Örkelljunga, Sweden. However, I was deeply saddened to hear that hundreds of beagles from the facility may be shipped to UK laboratories and used in cruel animal tests.

Huntingdon Life Sciences, a laboratory that AstraZeneca has worked with in the past, is notorious for its poor standards and shocking treatment of animals. Undercover investigations have found repeated animal welfare violations, with recorded instances of workers punching animals in the face, dissecting animals while they were still conscious and showing up to work intoxicated. No animal deserves this kind of abuse, and animals in other laboratories suffer similarly.

These beagles, who have had the most awful start in life, deserve a second chance. I implore you to allow them to be adopted into loving homes rather than shipping them thousands of miles to UK laboratories. Beagles are friendly and intelligent and make loyal companions, and there is no reason why these dogs should not be successfully rehabilitated as companion animals similar to many of the other AstraZeneca beagles. If, as you say, the dogs' welfare is your "utmost priority", please prove it by allowing all the remaining beagles to be put up for adoption into loving homes.
