Dozens of Beagles Rescued

December 2012

Following dynamic international campaigns by PETA and its affiliates, 70 4-month-old beagles destined for painful poisoning tests in an Indian laboratory were saved and adopted into loving homes. The Indian government granted permission for the rescue after PETA and PETA India uncovered that that the dogs were wrongfully imported, including being misleadingly identified as “pets” on required paperwork. The notorious laboratory breeder that sold the dogs, Marshall Bioresources, also lied to the airline transporting the beagles from China to India, stating in a letter that “they … won’t be hurt or killed as Lab Animal.”
