Claire Cooper Says NO to Beagle Experiments

Posted by 2 years ago | Permalink | Comments (121)

Claire Cooper, a British actor from Wakefield, has joined PETA in taking action against B&K Universal’s plans to build a new beagle breeding facility in East Riding of Yorkshire.photo 1 In a letter, Claire voiced her disgust at the plans to breed thousands of beagle puppies so that they can be tested on and killed in experiments. She writes:

“Breeding dogs for deadly experiments is a shameful trade. Dogs aren’t commodities or test tubes with tails. Beagles are friendly, loyal and gentle”.

As a local girl herself, it is clear that Claire is sickened by the idea of such unnecessary cruelty in the area. We hope that the council takes notice of her letter and the 25,000 other compassionate PETA supporters who have petitioned against the shameful building extension. Watch this space to see whether the council does the right thing by rejecting the appeal. Right now, you can also take action against cruel experiments on animals by asking the Home Office Minister to ban animal testing for household products.

    we cannot tolerate animal cruelty

  • Heidi Foster commented on October 16, 2014 at 11:31 am

    I think it is absolutely disgraceful and horrifying that Beagles are bred for the sole purpose of using them to test on! Beagles or any other animals have souls just like us and why should they be put through this horror?!? Switch it around…would you like to be put in a cage for the rest of your life, have regular torture (tests) taken out on you and then to end up being killed for no reason? Stop this at once!!

  • Claire Peter commented on October 16, 2014 at 11:31 am

    Agreed there is no need for this and all animals should have the same rights as a human! Stop this now!

  • Katie butler commented on October 16, 2014 at 11:32 am

    This is disgusting, I didn’t think such evil was going on
    This county we don’t want that here or to be associated
    With such horrible actions. Sort your life’s out karma will
    You get back for all this you have done.

  • Rhys Jones commented on October 16, 2014 at 11:32 am

    Please stop this needless cruelty and show that you have compassion. Our lives are short and we have a brief chance to do good.

  • Tracy brown commented on October 16, 2014 at 11:32 am

    Disgusted that you can think of breeding and using these poor defenceless
    Animals in archaic experiments, shame on you

    Buy your child a puppy and see the love they give, then tell them you are
    Taking it away to experiment on it!!!!

    How do you sleep at night having seen these horrors

  • Jaime M S Kedgley commented on October 16, 2014 at 11:32 am

    This facility is unwanted and unneeded. There is absolutely no need or excusr for testing household products on animals. This cruel and aborhent practice needs to be banned immediately.

  • Cindy Gordon commented on October 16, 2014 at 11:34 am

    Please ban animal testing for household products

  • chelsea carr commented on October 16, 2014 at 11:34 am

  • Lauren Hopkins commented on October 16, 2014 at 11:36 am

  • Angi woods commented on October 16, 2014 at 11:45 am

    Human beings can be such idiots and so cruel. Pretty sad the sickening acts that are allowed to go on in the world. I have owned 2 beagles and they are the kindness animals leave them alone and quit testing on them!

  • Christina Klein commented on October 16, 2014 at 11:46 am

  • Mallesa Bellot commented on October 16, 2014 at 11:49 am

    What a cruel way to take advantage of an animals loyal and adaptable ways. Animal testing is so out dated….get over it already!

    I agree with Claire:

    Breeding dogs for deadly experiments is a shameful trade. Dogs aren’t commodities or test tubes with tails. Beagles are friendly, loyal and gentle.

    Please stop now!

    Please end the torture.

  • shanine bruce commented on October 16, 2014 at 12:00 pm

    Its disgusting how people treat animals like they’re nothing, dogs are supposed to have loving homes and be loved and NOT be kept in cold metal cages getting injected with chemicals. Anyone who could do this to any animal but especially a dog has no soul and is a let down to humanity. Its disgusting and disgraceful.

  • Teresa Franklin commented on October 16, 2014 at 12:01 pm

    Stop this vile disgusting waste of suffering and death for cosmetics and things that have already been tested on before. There is enough knowledge to make these items without further testing!!!! Create some good karma and do what is right!!!!!! STOP ALL ANIMAL TESTING NOW!!!!

  • tanya andrews commented on October 16, 2014 at 12:02 pm

    I am appalled that in this day and age,
    with all the technology we have that there
    are still individuals who feel it is necessary
    to test on animals.

  • Gillian Boyce commented on October 16, 2014 at 12:05 pm

    shocking…when will the world wake up and realise this is barbaric!

  • Allison woods commented on October 16, 2014 at 12:06 pm

    Humans have the mind set ‘I want it, so I will get it.’They don’t care who gets hurt in the process. Even if it is an innocent animal who has never done one wrong thing in it’s life. Animals are not meant to be tested on, they are living beings. As humans we are against testing on humans, even murderers,who deserve it. Instead they decide that it will be better to test on innocent animals. How can those people go home at night, seeing their neighbor’s dog next door? Some even have pets of their own. It is so wrong. Animals are not ours for the taking. We can not just breed them for stupid little experiments. If you haven’t figured it out yet, the people who do the experiments disgust me. And in my opinion are no better than the killers waiting on death row. #SaveTheBeagels

  • Elaine waymark commented on October 16, 2014 at 12:07 pm

    please stop using animals for your experiments ghis is and always has been so wrong!!!!!!!

  • Celia Cooper commented on October 16, 2014 at 12:19 pm

    This is a shameful and dispgraceful trade. Animal experimentation should only be used where qbsolutely no other method is practicable and only then for valid medical purposes , having first been subjected to rigorous ethical scrutiny by independent bodies. There is no justification for this barbaric trade and I wish to protest against it.

  • Dave collins commented on October 16, 2014 at 12:24 pm

    Disgusting please stop our future fur babies being hurt

  • marlen arciniega commented on October 16, 2014 at 12:26 pm

    Animals deserve to be treated better, i dont support this cruel act.

  • marlen arciniega commented on October 16, 2014 at 12:31 pm

    Stop abusing animals, they are sentient being that deserve respect, animals need to be left alone.

  • Dawn Jobling commented on October 16, 2014 at 12:39 pm

    There is no justification in breeding puppies for torture then death, when they have served their purpose, rather than finding them loving homes. Testing needs to stop, with the proposed cruel deathcamp refused in all permissions and applications.

  • susan ann Deakin commented on October 16, 2014 at 12:55 pm

    I think this is disgusting, they only want to breed them to sell them for profit, it’s inhumane unnecessay to, live animals are no longer required, it’s only the cash theyare after, and people like this should be stopped.

  • Julie Greenwood commented on October 16, 2014 at 12:58 pm

    Stop hurting these lovely dogs !

  • karin williams commented on October 16, 2014 at 1:04 pm

  • christina taylor commented on October 16, 2014 at 1:07 pm

    Please do not build a lab to torture those beautiful dogs, nobody wants it.

  • Shima commented on October 16, 2014 at 1:15 pm

    Testing on any animal is a crime. They are not ours to test on. This is abusive and should not be legal. We take advantage of their trust, innocence, helplessness and loyalty. It’s wrong and is some thing that should be completely socially unacceptable. It’s shocking that in this day and age, animal testing continues and that companies and some people actually argue a case for it!! It is wrong and there is no way to justify this horrendous behaviour!!

  • Joanne Arden commented on October 16, 2014 at 1:19 pm

    This should not be allowed!

  • Nadia Mahan commented on October 16, 2014 at 2:19 pm

    Most of these experiments are a total waste of time. Dogs react differently to humans. No living thing should be breed for torture. Please don’t allow this happen to such lovely sweet dogs.

  • laura flind commented on October 16, 2014 at 2:50 pm

  • Sasha Watherston commented on October 16, 2014 at 3:10 pm

    Dear whoever this may concern,

    Please ban animal testing for household products. It’s inhumane, unnecessary and is extremely cruel. Please don’t cause more suffering to innocent animals.

  • Ian Smith commented on October 16, 2014 at 3:11 pm

    It is completely unacceptable in this day and age, to breed any animal purely for the purpose of torturing them by conducting experiments on their defenseless bodies.
    Beagles are loving, intelligent dogs and they deserve better than this!

  • Kathleen Mcdonald commented on October 16, 2014 at 3:13 pm

    This is so wrong.

  • Lesley Cottle commented on October 16, 2014 at 3:43 pm

    Experimenting on these lovely dogs is an absolute obscenity in a so called civilised society. There is no justification for this and I would like to see these experimenters treated the same as ordinairy citizens who inflict pain and cruelty on dogs.

  • Gil McWilliams commented on October 16, 2014 at 4:04 pm

    What makes these people believe that they have the right to treat other beings to this kind of violence?

  • Suzanne Armstrong commented on October 16, 2014 at 4:10 pm

    NO NO TO BEAGLE EXPERIMENTS!!!!

  • Kay Snelgrove commented on October 16, 2014 at 4:15 pm

    No animals should be used for testing household products. There are enough products out there. We do not need more. These are living creatures, that feel emotion & pain. They are left traumatized. It is cruel beyond belief & we have no right whatsoever to inflict pain on any animal!!!

  • Claire commented on October 16, 2014 at 4:24 pm

    Experimenting on these beautiful dogs should be made illegal! It’s animal abuse and shouldn’t be happening any where in the world. Least of all England!!! It’s disgusting and we will do everything in our power to stop it happening

  • susan browne commented on October 16, 2014 at 4:34 pm

    beagles are highly intelligent dogs and as living breathing feeling creatures should not be experimented on for any reason, this is completely inhumane and totally wrong on every level.

  • Janice Jones commented on October 16, 2014 at 4:39 pm

    Please just stop this now.

  • Margaret Britt commented on October 16, 2014 at 4:40 pm

    When will this needless, inhumane practice stop. Breeding these beautiful animals just to experiment on them? Experiment on each other people. Use yourselves for human guinea pigs but leave these innocent animals alone! I don’t know how you can live with yourselves.

  • Marion Foster commented on October 16, 2014 at 4:40 pm

    Please stop this disgraceful activity, animals should not be suffering for the sake of humans.

  • Marion Foster commented on October 16, 2014 at 4:41 pm

  • kevin stephens commented on October 16, 2014 at 6:48 pm

    Forget legal reasons, how would anyone feel to have there children taken away from them and experimented on.
    The suffering for these animals is horrendous what is the matter with people can they not understand this.
    In years to come people will look back at this and be sickened by what went on, just as we now are with the nazis and how they treated the jews.
    These animals have every right legal or otherwise to a decent family life.

  • Sue andrews commented on October 16, 2014 at 6:51 pm

    There’s NO reason to use any animal in labs. STOP

  • Patricia Masters commented on October 16, 2014 at 6:54 pm

    Use criminals not animals

  • Tracy Cronje commented on October 16, 2014 at 7:26 pm

    All animal experiments should be banned. I cannot understand the mentality of people who perform the experiments, or indeed those who breed the animals knowing full well what is going to happen to them. One thing they must all remember is that as you sow so shall you reap!!

  • nelam rall commented on October 16, 2014 at 7:28 pm

    Enough now and please put an end to this. I ask from you, that you for a split second try and imagine yourself in their shoes and attempt to try to feel the pain and fear that you’re inflicting upon these poor souls that god created.
    Your time will come as we all know karma doesn’t take too long to come around.
    THE CHOICE IS YOURS, DECIDE WISELY!

  • Paula Plimmer commented on October 16, 2014 at 7:29 pm

    At a time when we are looking for more transparency and greater justification in animal testing it is disturbing that this new facility is being considered for the go ahead. I hope Yorkshire Council will make the right decision and reject this proposal and show that it is listening to public opinion.

  • Jake commented on October 16, 2014 at 7:37 pm

    Awful

  • Carol Withington commented on October 16, 2014 at 7:46 pm

    I would love to experiment on the humans & governments that allow and think it is okay to torture innocent animals.

  • Robyn McCarthy commented on October 16, 2014 at 8:24 pm

    BAN THIS CRUEL INHUMANE PRACTICE!!!!!!

  • Carla Parrish commented on October 16, 2014 at 8:26 pm

  • Nicola Sumner commented on October 16, 2014 at 9:17 pm

  • Laura Biddle commented on October 16, 2014 at 9:19 pm

    Testing on any animal is risky and unsafe there are more reliable methods this century. This cruelty has no place in today’s investigations please don’t allow this planning. So many people love beagles listen to their protests.

  • Marie Harper commented on October 16, 2014 at 9:21 pm

    Just for the record we are now in the year 2014, we can go to the moon , we have more technology than we know what to do with , so why the hell are we persecuting
    Innocent animals, who have no voice no defence against humans , who also o have
    Two eyes , nose mouth heart etc etc, there are still among us some very cruel evil
    People who still use these unnessisary barbaric torture,
    When will it stop NOW NOW NOW PLEASE stop now Thank you

  • Diana Higgins commented on October 16, 2014 at 9:26 pm

    Definitely completely against this terrible place being granted approvsl. This is modern day slavery and torture. A place like this is hell on Earth.

  • Tao Grier commented on October 16, 2014 at 9:34 pm

    This needs to stop! We are all the same. It takes an evil human being to test, and harm animals I’m the process for a “bloody” lipstick. Don’t you think there are enough shades of pink frigging lip sticks out there.

  • Jan pedley commented on October 16, 2014 at 9:44 pm

    stop this outdated cruel activity, these animals cannot speak up, so it’s our voice that must be heard on their behalf. Tests for human products should be tested on humans not dogs.

  • Goga commented on October 16, 2014 at 10:03 pm

    People, stop that nonsence!

  • jennie commented on October 16, 2014 at 10:06 pm

    Here we are again … more dog experiments… are we supposed to be living in a civilized society. Just stop experimenting on animals. I remember signing petitions in the 1950’s 1960’s 1970’s 1980’s, 1990’s 2000’s and here we are again in the 2014 asking for the testing on animals to stop. 60 YEARS OF ASKING FOR EXPERIMENTS ON BEAGLES TO STOP. Sickens me.

  • Pat Wench commented on October 16, 2014 at 10:31 pm

    When will they learn that animal testing is not acceptable

  • Alise Poules commented on October 16, 2014 at 10:49 pm

    No one has the right to abuse animals in this way This is immoral practice and highly ineffective it shows lack of empathy and intelligence

  • Thilini De Silva commented on October 17, 2014 at 2:00 am

    Please stop this cruelty! Would you volunteer to be test subjects and get this barbaric treatments?? Please release these innocent helpless puppies. Its inhumane!!

  • Sharon woodburn commented on October 17, 2014 at 3:02 am

    This is not necessary any more. Please this must stop now no more suffering.

  • Caroline Lammond commented on October 17, 2014 at 4:42 am

    Please stop this evil cruelty to beautiful animals, we don’t want animals to suffer anymore. This needs to stop now, I’m sure many humans would voulenteer or better still use murders, child molesters or rapists..

  • Claire Wynne commented on October 17, 2014 at 6:37 am

    The market is flooded with products that do the job. Stop this barbaric treatment now. I wish stores put animal tested products in a separate area and if we stopped buying them…places like this would no longer exist. The public need educated..we got by without them before. Downright cruelty.

  • Pauline commented on October 17, 2014 at 8:30 am

    And this is a country that loves animals. Test on humans and see if they like it. After all animals dont whare makeup. Disgraceful it has to stop

  • Tracey Bryant commented on October 17, 2014 at 8:41 am

    Enough is enough. These beautiful dogs should not be bred for anything other than to be loving
    Pets. I despise our country for any kind of cruelty to any animal. Totally agree to the word “NO”

  • Judith Myers commented on October 17, 2014 at 8:48 am

    This is totally wrong, I never buy products that use animals for testing! It’s cruel and worse animal abuse . I have made my own products to clean the home. Vinegar and lemons oil etc. there are also enough products on the market! Why do you continue the suffering of helpless dogs????????? I can’t think of any normal caring person could ever go to work and make a sweet life suffer ????? Please, please, stop this immediately it’s barbaric.

  • Val Hansen commented on October 17, 2014 at 11:38 am

    Shame on the East Riding of Yorkshire for planning to sibject thousands of innocent dogs to deadly experiments!!! Get real guys – there are plenty of alternatives nowadays which do not require testing on living creatures. Set an EXAMPLE to the public instead of sickening them with your unnecessary inhumane plans!!!

  • Sue Cowell commented on October 17, 2014 at 6:30 pm

    Experimenting on animals is vile and unnecessary in the 21st century but to experiment on dogs is beyond understanding . No animal should suffer for human vanity, cleaning products, or to be experimented on just because scientists want to play. We are better than this. We do not need to inflict suffering on our fellow creatures with whom we share the planet. This company is in this foul trade for money. Nothing more or less. Money. Shame on them.

  • Jill Martin commented on October 17, 2014 at 7:57 pm

    Unethical, inconceivable, stop this horrific practice Now! How does anyone sleep at night purely evil and cruel.

  • Cath Gaboreau commented on October 17, 2014 at 10:58 pm

    2014! EVOLVE AND BECOME RESPECTFUL HUMANS!

  • Beth Williams commented on October 18, 2014 at 10:56 am

    What a horrible and unethical thing to do. Please stop testing on any animal! They are precious and innocent. I think this practice has gone way too far, and i can’t believe that at this day and time it still continues.

  • Bev Van Gelder commented on October 18, 2014 at 5:10 pm

    Object strongly to stop it happening

  • Denise Rowden commented on October 18, 2014 at 6:12 pm

    This needs to stop now. The animals should never be bread just to perform the inhuman, cruel tests on them. What possesses this organization to even contemplate such evil thoughts. Please don’t do this it is not what we are here for, these are such beautiful, loving feeling creatures. This amongst other things, is what is so wrong with the world today. Think about this, it is too late, once the facility is built. We do such things because we can. We should try to prevent these creatures from suffering for whatever reason. God help them.

  • naperville chiropractic commented on October 18, 2014 at 7:37 pm

    Valuable information. Lucky me I found your site accidentally, and I am surprised why this accident didn’t came about earlier! I bookmarked it.

  • Lorna Rose fox commented on October 19, 2014 at 5:19 pm

    Give me bloody strength this should not be allowed
    in the 21st century and so sick of heartless labs testing on innocent animals
    I have barely been able to watch undercover videos and how is it bloody fair?!
