PERMISSION REFUSED FOR HUMBERSIDE BEAGLE FARM
Thursday, 16th June
Great news to hear that the proposed beagle breeding centre has been refused. Well done to all the activists across the world and locally that campaigned against this. This continues to show that the anti-vivisection movement is effective when we all campaign together.
Part of the official NAVA statement:
Permission has, this afternoon, been refused for one of the largest beagle breeding facilities in Europe following a Planning Development Meeting held by East Riding of Yorkshire Council at County Hall, Beverley.
B&K Universal, owned by US-based Marshall Farms, planned to construct the facility to hold 2,000 beagle dogs destined for laboratory experiments across Great Britain. It was the first such facility proposed to be built in the UK for half a century and saw global condemnation.
Campaigners and local residents have understandably welcomed the decision.
