Making A Killing

Exposed: The first ever in-depth exposé of the suffering involved in the breeding of beagles for the research industry.


Background

Harlan-Hillcrest breeds and supplies animals such as beagles, monkeys, rabbits and guinea-pigs for the research industry. It also supplies animal organs and blood products. In 1999, following a gruelling 10 month undercover investigation, the BUAV exposed the suffering involved in the breeding of beagles for the research industry.

Up to 1,000 beagle dogs were held inside Harlan at any one time; 200 females who spent their pitiful lives producing litter after litter; 20 or so male 'stud' dogs; 100-200 suckling pups and 500-600 'stock' dogs awaiting shipment to experimental laboratories around the world.
