Write to Greg Clark, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, and oppose the plans to allow B&K to breed ferrets and up to 2,000 beagles at any one time in Grimston, Yorkshire.

Sign an online petition here.



Dear Mr. Clark,

I am outraged by the Planning Inspectorate’s decision to give permission to Yorkshire Evergreen on behalf of B&K Universal to expand their laboratory breeding farm in Grimston.

How can the government justify this decision given its policy of reducing the number of animals used in experiments?

I am more than disappointed to see that you have overridden a local council decision, as well as not considering local and national public opinion on this matter. Over 100,000 people have signed petitions and thousands objected to the planning proposals made on behalf of B&K Universal by Yorkshire Evergreen.

I am also shocked that permission has been given to a company whose vet and managers were convicted in Italy in January 2015 for animal cruelty and illegal killing of animals at their parent company’s breeding facility in Montichiari, Brescia. A company whose care towards animals in their Green Hill facility according to Italian magistrates was "inadequate, untimely, ineffective and short-lived." 

I look forward to your response.

Yours sincerely,

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
