Harlan UKedit

Harlan UK Ltd is the British arm of Harlan Sprague Dawley Inc It has an annual turnover of £66 million, according to the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection BUAV5 The company supplies marmosets, beagles, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, mice, gerbils, and hamsters, as well as hybrid, mutant, and transgenic animals Its brochure says it supplies more stocks and strains of lab animals than any other commercial supplier in the world5 BUAV writes that the company breeds around 450 baby marmoset monkeys a year, selling them to laboratories around Europe for £1,000 each

Animal welfareedit

Harlan Laboratories says it is "dedicated to the humane care and use of research animals"6 The IACUC and the company's veterinary staff manage policies and procedures to ensure that all animal use is performed in accordance with government and industry standards7

In the UK, The Sunday Times reported that beagles kept on a large farm were permitted only 20 minutes out of their cages per week because the company, "is exempt from the main animal welfare legislation which requires dogs to have daily exercise", and instead "adheres to a code of practice enforced by the Home Office" An ex-employee of Harlan told the Times that he was shown how to separate fighting dogs by "kicking and punching them" The company said they investigated the charge and found that "there were some inconsistencies between sites in the way the dogs were being separated during fighting"8

Harlan has been a target of animal rights activists, and the group Animal Liberation Front has raided Harlan Interfauna removing animals and documents For one raid in 1990, during which 82 beagles and 26 rabbits were taken, John Curtin and Danny Attwood were convicted and sentenced to nine months and 18 months in prison respectively910

In 2006, over 1,000 animals, including 25 macaque monkeys were removed from Harlan in Correzzana, Italy, with computers and equipment smashed, by the Animal Liberation Front in Italy11
