    Beagles abandoned when cosmetics lab goes into bankruptcy

    http://www.wpix.com/news/wpix-beagle...,7709595.story

    "According to animal rescue officials, over 100 beagles were rescued from an abandoned cosmetics laboratory in Warren County, New Jersey earlier this week and they're now looking for new homes.

    The beagles were being used for pharmaceutical and chemical tests at the lab, officials said."



    Locals, can any of you tell us what cosmetics companies were using the lab?

    Are they not going after these tyrants for animal cruelty? Isn't NY a felony state?!?!?!?!?

    Oh, this is so sad. But, I'm thrilled that the beagles are finding new homes!

    My guess is that the lab was using the beagles to test the affects of "inhaling" mineral makeup. Hounds are super sniffers. There was an episode on Dr. Oz where this was discussed:

    http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/price-beauty

    excerpt:
    Mineral makeup is a big trend. Made from minerals such as mica, which are used for industrial purposes as well, these tiny particles are a thousand times
    smaller than predecessors from even 10 years ago. Their small size makes for a smoother, more flawless look, but it has one serious unintended consequence. The particles are so tiny they fall quickly through the air and can be inhaled easily into your lungs. When construction workers use mica in products such as spackle, they wear masks to protect their lungs from scarring over time.

    I am thrilled the beagles will be getting new homes as well, especially considering they have spent their ENTIRE lives in steel cages. Sniffing cosmetics.

    Thanks for the tip, Looking Up...I want to see if I can sleuth out what companies used them.

    130 beagles and 55 monkeys were freed. All but one beagle had not yet been used for testing. According to the above...

    This link is to a blog that discusses the closure of the plant and the burden the "colony" (the animals) posed to the receivership...ie Bank of America. They were going to euthanize them all.

    Just for the record, the lab is in north NJ, looks like the rescuers are in NY.
    May you dream you are dreaming in a warm soft bed
    and the voices inside you that fill you with dread
    make the sounds of thousands of angels instead
    tonight where you might be laying your head.
    I wish you well.

    I cannot WAIT to find out what cosmetic line this was.

    I swear, even if it is my favorite brand, I will never use it again!

    I meant for leaving the dogs behind after they had closed up shop. I am so glad that they are going to have a chance at living normal lives, bless their lil snoopy hearts.

    Loreal seems to be okay. I looked up Loreal and they have labs in Clark, NJ ... not Oxford, Warren County, NJ. So, if you are using Loreal products like I do, I believe we can continue to do so ... with confidence that a least Loreal is not associated with this case.

    Here is the Loreal link. Once there ... click on "Organization" then "Product Development Labs". http://www2.lorealusa.com/_en/_us/in...t2=00004/00001

    Below is an excerpt:

    The development labs utilize technology developed locally (in Clark, New Jersey, or Chicago, Illinois) or transferred from the L’Oréal Paris laboratories.
