In a star studded event on 6th September, our beautiful new Beagle Ambassador Scarlett was awarded the Daily Mirror Animal Hero, Inspirational Animal of the Year award, because she is turning a terrible past into a bright future for all laboratory animals. Scarlett is helping us call for a rigorous public scientific debate – judged by independent experts from the relevant fields of science – about claims that toxicity testing on dogs and other animals can predict the responses of humans.
The Daily Mirror launched Scarlett’s award with this piece and made a wonderful film, below, including interviews with her parents Janie and Phil Green; recent horrifying undercover footage from a dog laboratory and an interview with FLOE, about current scientific knowledge that invalidates animal testing.
