Camp Beagle says the visit of Wendy Turner Webster and Carol Royle to Camp Beagle “marks a significant moment in the ongoing discourse surrounding animal rights and the ethical considerations of animal testing”. A Camp Beagle spokesperson said: “Their presence at the camp, at Wyton near Huntingdon, which has been a site of continuous protest since July 2021, brings into sharp focus the conditions faced by beagle puppies bred at MBR Acres for toxicology testing.

“The involvement of television presenter and journalist Turner Webster, known for her work with The Humane Research Trust and Animal Aid, and actress Royle, a patron of Animal Free Research UK, lends a powerful voice to the argument against the use of animals in research, particularly in light of the development of alternative methods that do not involve animals.”

“The stark contrast drawn by Royle between the treatment of animals in research facilities and the compassion shown to pets raises ethical questions about the nature of scientific progress and the value placed on sentient life.”

Carol Royle said:” Every single type of animal is used in vivisection, but beagles are a favourite because they are loving, trusting and compliant – man’s best friend, bred specifically to be tortured, brutalised, and ultimately killed”.

The Camp Beagle spokesperson said Carol’s remarks “resonates with a public increasingly uncomfortable with the dichotomy of animal treatment in society. Her words reflect a deep-seated concern for the psychological disconnect that may be required to operate in such environments”.

Turner Webster said: “I cannot conceive how people work there -then probably go home to their pets.

“If researchers, scientists and the government don’t care about the pain they are causing to these beagles, perhaps they should think about the pain that is caused to humans by using outdated and nonsensical methods of research which delays the safe treatment for humans”

“Their statements underscore a broader conversation about the moral implications of animal testing and the potential for a shift towards more humane and scientifically advanced alternatives.

The visit by these two prominent figures serves as a catalyst for further discussion and action towards the adoption of alternative research methods that respect animal welfare and advance human knowledge without causing harm to living creatures.”

The spokesperson added: “The ongoing protest at Camp Beagle, supported by individuals like Turner Webster and Royle, reflects a commitment to advocating for change in the face of longstanding practices.

“It is a testament to the power of collective action and the enduring hope for a future where scientific inquiry does not come at the expense of animal well-being.
