PETA’s effort to save the 70 beagles held in quarantine before they are sent to be used for deadly experiments has just received some high-profile support. On behalf of PETA, three-time South Filmfare Award–winning actor Trisha Krishnan has sent an urgent letter to Mr MF Farooqui, chair of the Ministry of Environment and Forests’ Committee for the Purpose of Control and Supervision of Experiments on Animals, urging him to allow PETA to find loving homes for the dogs – who were falsely marked as “pets” on an Animal Quarantine and Certification Services no-objection certificate, even though they are destined for use by Advinus Therapeutics in Bangalore, a pharmaceutical laboratory that performs painful and deadly experiments on animals.
Celebrities also took to Twitter, calling for the dogs to be saved from experimentation. Hema Malini, Gul Panag, Rahul Khanna, Priya Anand, Regina Cassandra, Rajniesh Duggall, Celina Jaitly, Neha Dhupia, Sonu Sood, Kunal Khemu and cricketer Kartik Murali all tweeted the following message: “Help @PetaIndia save 70 #Beagles wrongly transported as pets to India for #laboratory testing http://bit.ly/PJwvzp“.
