Plans to Breed Beagles for Deadly Experiments Should Be Stopped, Says Famed Rocker
As the Home Office has the authority to grant a licence to a new Yorkshire beagle-breeding facility, famed rocker Morrissey is joining PETA in rushing a letter to Home Secretary Theresa May on behalf of the dogs—most of whom would be bound for laboratories, where they'd be poisoned, experimented on, and killed. Morrissey—who will play in Hull on Friday—is urgently asking May to put a stop to the proposed facility before it can begin breeding dogs who will be condemned to a life of deprivation and misery.
As Morrissey warns in his letter, the proposed facility presents a barren, sterile environment and would force dogs to live in a windowless building with concrete floors and tiled walls, things that are far from natural to them. Beagles are loyal, intelligent, fun-loving dogs – all qualities which make them ideal companions for British families.
