Petitioning HM Government UK

Abolish the breeding for & use of Beagles for animal experimentation in the UK



Ancient medical reseach methods using animal experiments became popular in the Victorian era.  Absurdly these methods continued today in the 21st Century, but there is now overwhelming evidence that this abhorrent practice could be eliminated due to major advances in scientific research whereby more accurate and dependable results could be achieved by using this new technology without using Beagles.  In 2016,  3326 Beagles were used in 4607  procedures in the UK and thousands were bred specifically for this purpose. Both the number of Beagles used and procedures show an increase compared to 2015 statistics.
