Beagles are set free - level 3

Beagles are set free - level 3

04-09-2015 07:00

In what has been called the "summer of freedom", one of the biggest beagle rescues in US history has taken place. Thirty-eight little beagles from five labs across 11 different states have been freed. The Beagle Freedom Project's video shows the dogs from the moment they are released from their cages to adjusting to their new lives.

The dogs had never been able to enjoy the normal, simple pleasures of a dog's life, so playing outdoors and the feel of grass on their paws is a whole new experience.

Despite various 'animal industry' obstacles, the team quietly secured the release of dozens of the 'purpose-bred for research' beagles, after the labs deemed them 'experimentally spent.' Instead of being put to sleep, as per normal procedure, the adorable pups got a second chance at a happy life with a real family.

Difficult words: adjust (to get used to something), paw (an animal’s foot), dozens (a lot), deem (to consider), put to sleep (to kill an animal painlessly), as per (in accordance with).
