Animal rights' campaigners staged a protest outside Astra Zeneca in Cheshire.
It's after beagles used for medical testing were moved to the UK when the firm closed kennels in Sweden.
The dogs will be used for research into conditions such as asthma, diabetes and arthritis.
A spokeswoman for Astra Zeneca said animal testing was a 'vital part of the research process.'
But campaigners want the animals freed and rehomed.
