Understanding Animal Research are promoting animal research, which we do not condone. Maybe instead they could put their funding and effort into non animal alternatives which would make the public happier and stop the needless testing on innocent animals. The leaflet they have produced is lacking in facts, misleading and contains limited information on very old research, conducted mostly in other countries. It has little value and is just being used to upset, antagonise and promote a response from animal lovers. All of the animal research they refer to was conducted long before the pet passport came about, some of it over 100 years ago. To what purpose are they drawing attention to this information way after the fact, if not to try and gain goodwill for future animal research? We all know that appalling animal testing was conducted in the past, but what is worse is the fact that it is still happening today.

Euro Tunnel should not be used as a place to gauge reactions to animal testing, whilst at the same time outwardly advertising themselves as pet friendly. Your customers do not want to see material like this as they return from their holidays with their beloved pets. For many people, owning a pet is the very reason they decide to travel with you in the first place. Decide which public image with regards to animals you want to promote, as you cannot have it both ways. If you continue to show your support for Understanding Animal Research by hosting their offensive literature over the importance of animal welfare and the happiness of your paying customers, we will boycott travel with you in future.
