A bikini protest at an animal rights protest camp took an unexpected twist when those taking part and their supporters were showered with copies of an injunction from the site owners.
Scores of copies of the injunction littered the road outside MBR Acres in Wyton near Huntingdon as the models from Babestation joined Camp Beagle to lend support and momentum to their campaign.
Stella Paris, a host on the adult TV channel Babestation host and also a social media influencer with 357,000 followers on Instagram, led the bikini protest.
She has taken the efforts of Camp Beagle to heart and decided to invite colleagues to join her to draw attention to the work being carried out by MBR Acres.
“Be the voice for these puppies who have been imprisoned, kept in hellish conditions, and then sent to laboratories around the UK to face a worse faith,” she said.
Great support @ camp beagle 👏🏻 https://t.co/j6NJYEFlb0
— Ban Lab testing on Beagles UK 🤍 🐾 🤎 (@FreetheBeagles) July 10, 2023
“Beagle puppies are bred at the facility, owned by American company Marshall BioResources, and are kept in cages until 16 weeks old when they are transported to laboratories around the UK to be subjected to vivisection and experiments.
“Most of these beagles will not live until their first birthday.”
She said she first heard about the plight of the beagles at MBR Aches via Camp Beagle “a peaceful, grassroots protest camp that has been situated outside MBR Acres for over two years.”
She added: “When I heard about the conditions the beagles were kept in and how their short lives were filled with torture instead of love, I had to do something.
“I love all animals and want to be a voice for them. The UK is meant to be a country of dog lovers and I don’t think everyone realises vivisection is still happening in the UK in 2023. MBR Acres breed about 2000 beagles a year that end up being tested on in laboratories when we have more reliable alternatives.”
Stella said she wanted to raise awareness of what happens at MBR Acres and help Camp Beagle reach their target on their government petition.
“Camp Beagle needs to get 100,000 people to sign their petition to get the government to debate it, they want the government to stop funding animal testing and divert this money to non-animal testing that gives greater accuracy of results without the cruelty,” she said.
Stella said: “What happens to the Beagles is serious and disgusting and we want to raise as much awareness as possible. If MBR Acres won’t release the puppies, then we’ll have to release ours!
“My friends were appalled the puppies were being kept in cages and never let outside to feel the sun on their bodies and, when they heard I planned to strip off, wanted to join me to create maximum exposure to this barbaric industry that wishes to remain a dirty secret.”
“We want everyone to sign the petition and send a clear message to the government and MBR Acres that we should not be subjecting these dogs to any amount of cruelty.”
