ACTION

Bantin & Kingman Universal Ltd (B&K) applied for a replacement beagle breeding facility. That application was denied in June 2011.

However, B&K has now appealed to The Planning Inspectorate regarding its application to build a replacement beagle breeding facility to supply dogs for research.

Tell The Planning Inspectorate your concerns about the suffering and cruelty involved in the breeding and use of dogs in research. Such research is highly controversial, for both ethical and scientific reasons. All experiments on dogs inevitably cause pain or suffering.

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

The BUAV has learned that Bantin & Kingman Universal Ltd (B&K) has appealed to The Planning Inspectorate regarding its application to build a replacement beagle breeding facility to supply dogs for research. In June, the Planning Committee of East Riding Council rejected the original proposal by B&K following objections lodged by the BUAV, other animal groups and thousands of members of the public across Yorkshire and the UK.

Please cite your concerns about the suffering and cruelty involved in the breeding and use of dogs in research. Such research is highly controversial, for both ethical and scientific reasons. All experiments on dogs inevitably cause pain or suffering. This is quite apart from the distress caused by the confined and unnatural conditions in which the dogs spend their whole lives. B&K stated in its application that the dogs will have no outdoor access which means at no point in their short lives will they be able to experience fresh air or indulge natural behaviour like smelling grass.
