This must freed-animal day. Good story!

Shed a couple of tears concerning the story about the Beagles who were used lab experiments that were adopted this morning.

They had never seen sunlight, grass or affection from a human. Lived in small cages from birth.

Great story. I hope that old elephant has at least a few years left...
