A US-backed firm wants to breed up to 2,000 dogs a year in Grimston near Hull and sell them for use in tests in UK laboratories.

Controversial plans to breed beagles in East Yorkshire for use in animal experiments have been resubmitted two years after they were thrown out by the government.

A US-backed firm wants to breed up to 2,000 dogs a year in the village of Grimston, near Hull, and sell them for use in tests in UK laboratories.

A previous proposal to breed beagles on the site was rejected by Communities secretary Eric Pickles in January 2012.

His department called the plans in after campaigns were launched by anti-vivisection group and planning permission was refused by East Riding Council.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Have the US run oit of prisoners or are they all on parole working for Obama?

Time for the animal rights to get theirselves ready for a fight on this one.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Huh. Never heard of such a thing. Now mice I'm OK with, but why test on beagles?
They are cute, adorable, loving, and brings happiness out of a small child. Shame on those weirdo's.

But its ok for them to do it in our western civilised countries, because its all for the good of science and research.

I made a joke about the breed choice earlier, but.

If dogs are the best choice for this type of research, I don't actually have a problem with this.

It's not like they're kicking in a kid's door on Christmas day and stealing their puppy.

I hope they don't get permission to do this. Poor dogs, what a life!
