I’m writing with a heavy heart to tell you that the Government has announced today a cruel beagle breeding farm in Yorkshire can expand.

This decision means that thousands of dogs could be bred by Bantin & Kingman Ltd in the picturesque hamlet of Grimston - to suffer and die in experiments in the UK and Europe

Bantin & Kingman has been attempting to extend its Yorkshire beagle farm since at least 2011.

In January, their Italian sister company Green Hill, saw three executives convicted of animal cruelty at a similar beagle breeding farm.

Bantin & Kingman not only shares the same parent company as Green Hill – Ghislaine Rondot, one of the executives to receive a prison sentence in Italy for animal cruelty, was also its Director.

We have been there every step of the way, trying to prevent this cruel business from expanding.

We’ve:
provided expert legal argument to the Government
handed in our 99,000 strong petition
helped convince local councillors to turn down two previous planning applications by the company

As you’d expect, we are condemning the Government’s decision in the strongest possible terms, and looking at legal options to challenge it.

But sadly, today’s decision shows just what a David and Goliath fight we have on our hands.

As a volunteer for Colorado Beagle Rescue and a member of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine I know that beagles are chosen for labs because of their docile temperaments. Breeding beagles to take part in "experiments" where they are subjected to cruel and sadistic people is contemptible. Breeding beagles for that purpose has been widely condemned. That Bantin and Kingman Ltd. have chosen not only to send beagles to labs where people will grievously harm these gentle dogs but to expand your breeding facilities where, at your sister company Green Hill, the beagles were exposed to a level of cruelty that has led to the imprisonment of three executives is heinous. A country with any compassion would shut down your farms and save beagles from the horror of Green Hill and the labs that Bantin and Kingman Ltd. and their associates are breeding them for, not expand them. The atrocities that take place on your farms and the vicious treatment of innocent beagles at your hands is nothing less than barbaric and these farms should be shut down immediately.
