‘You have a right to know what’s going on, what vivisectors are spending money on – this is your tax dollars at work.’

Check out this must read piece from U.S. News and World Report : “Beagles ‘Lobby’ Against Taxpayer-Funded Animal Experiments.”

Journalist Nikki Schwab talks with Anthony Bellotti of the White Coat Waste team and Hamilton (a.k.a. “Hammy”) of the Beagle Freedom Project – a beagle abused in the government’s forced taxpayer-funded animal experiments.

Money quote:

And this:

‘I don’t think you can get a much better lobbyist than this,’ Bellotti said, giving Hammy a pat. ‘You have a right to know what’s going on, what they’re spending money on – this is your tax dollars at work.’
