Petition Action

European Union regulations on the welfare of laboratory animals

Additional Information

Puppies and kittens could be clubbed to death under new European Union regulations on the welfare of laboratory animals.
Currently, newborn puppies, kittens, ferrets and fox cubs which are not needed for scientific research are put to sleep.
But rules due to become law in the UK by 2013 sanction killing by a percussive blow to the head.

Britain has the option of keeping its own higher welfare standards but shows no sign of doing so.

We must not allow this barbaric act to be brought into law..sign now to get the government to keep our own higher welfare standards.
