Best Of OrvisNews.com: Beagles feel the grass and sun for the very first time


Written by: Phil Monahan


This is an astonishing video that will make you feel contrary emotions, joy and sadness, at the same time. It shows a group of beagles who have been confined to indoor cages for their whole lives finally getting to step outside at the age of two. According to the folks at the Beagle Freedom project:

They have known no soft human touch, no warm bed, no
companionship, no love. They have never been outside or sniffed a tree or grass.
Finally, after years of being poked and prodded, these beagles are FREE!

    I cried when I saw this video. Why do we need to torture animals with drugs and chemicals that also end up making humans sick?!!! Thank you for all you do. God bless those who care about animals too.

    I LOVE THIS! I have 2 rescued Beagles from Beagle Freedom Project!! They are they best pups ever!

    Please, do everything you can to support Beagle Freedom Project and legislation to require laboratories to release animals for adoption — Beagle Freedom Bill.

    We are fostering a sweet little girl who was rescued just one month ago by the Beagle Freedom Project. It’s been the most rewarding experience for our family! Please support the Beagle Freedom Bill to allow these animals to be released for adoption. We must be their voices!

    I am a Beagle lover. This is my third purebread and before that I had a Beagle Mix. What a special breed. Such a shame that so many of them are used for research their entire lives, I know research is important but there’s got to be a better way. These poor precious animals deserve better. Thank God these were rescued.
