We are delighted to have the support of naturalist and wildlife presenter, Bill Oddie, who has joined our call for the Home Office to set up an independent inquiry following the BUAV investigation at Imperial College London.
Our investigation documented a catalogue of shortcomings and wrongdoing by staff and researchers that caused even more distress and suffering to the animals in its care than was allowed in the experiments. Findings included: breaches in and lack of knowledge of UK Home Office project licences; a failure to provide adequate anaesthesia and pain relief; incompetence and neglect and highly disturbing methods used to kill animals.
So far, over 54,000 people have joined our call for an independent inquiry. Please sign the BUAV petition on Change.org.
