More than 40 officers and 10 police vans were dispatched from the US multinational Marshall Bio Resources (MBR) center on Wednesday to protect the carriage of dogs, protest organizers said.
It was thought to be the highest number of puppies ever sent. Activists said they counted four van loads, about 40 cubs each.
Campaigners who claim that laboratory experiments on dogs are outdated and unnecessary, insist that their Camp Beagle protests are peaceful every day.
The Cambridgeshire Constabulary, however, spent as much as 165,166 between June 27 and September 14 to police the camp, according to a Freedom of Information request released by activists.
The cost included £ 46,214 of police protests on 10 August and £ 17,889 on 25 August.
The MBR produces 2,000 beagles per year, which are marketed for testing chemicals and drugs at about 16 weeks of age, and are held elsewhere.
Critics have labeled it a “factory farm for dogs,” but the experiments are “a small but crucial part of a wide range of applications, from ecological work to disease research,” the company says.
According to a High Court ruling this week, the protest camp could remain outside MBR acres, if people stand 10 meters away from the gate.
He criticized the police should spend their time and money to catch criminals such as murderers and rapists.
The ethics of deploying authorities to assist in “animal cruelty” should be questioned by adding that “this is the lowest factor in animal violence in a country like the UK”.
A Camp Beagle spokeswoman said: “Many people were unaware that this was still going on because the barns were unmarked and the dogs were not heard on the road because it was soaked.
“Animals are not a viable way to test these products for humans, and there is great support from scientists behind them. They can prove with certainty that these experiments are barbaric, but they are delaying healing in human medicine by delivering unreliable results.”
Tests for dogs may include forcibly giving them chemicals or inhaling pesticides before putting them on.
The company says most trials, such as blood tests, are mild, and the results are used to develop vaccines, including the Kovid-19 jab.
However, campaigners say animal tests are used by multinationals to develop routine home and toilet products that are sold to countries Animal testing It is a law or practice like China.
An MBR spokesman said: “We fully respect the protesters’ right to peacefully protest. It is legally conducted. Our staff, fully trained animal care professionals, their sole function is to raise healthy and satisfied animals. Unfortunately, they are being abused by some protesters and they leave our dogs Come on.
“We will continue our campaign in full compliance with Home Office regulations and our general high welfare standards. We pride ourselves on what we do every day because our work allows the advancement of medicine to save millions of human and animal lives.
