Safe Mode: On
Protest in DC after 12 jailed for storming Italian laboratory breeder, liberating 30 beagle pups

On the 8th of May, DC area animal rights activists descended on the
Italian Embassy to demand the closure of the Green Hill breeding
facility, a laboratory supply breeder that sends 250 beagle puppies a
month to vivisection labs. Activists also demanded the release of 12
activists in Italy who stormed the breeder and rescued 30 beagles on
April 28.

On the 28th of April, a protest in Italy against Green Hill suddenly
morphed into a raid, with activists storming the grounds and rescuing 30
beagles. They climbed over fences, opened the kennels and liberated the
dogs. This was not an ALF night raid, but an in-your-face invasion and
rescue of animals being shipped to torture in broad daylight and in
public.



Most of the beagles made it to safety and were removed from the area
before the police could catch their rescuers, but 12 activists and a few
beagles were captured. The activsts are currently at a prison in
Brescia, and could face charges up to robbery for this beagle
liberation.



Activists at the Italian Embassy on May 8 were demanding that all these
charges be dropped, all 12 activists be released, and every last dog be
removed from Green Hill breeders and the facility be shut down.



Green Hill, like Huntingdon Life Sciences, has been caught shaking and
punching beagle puppies to "discipline" them. Who are those who shake
and punch their victims to make money off them to accuse anyone of
"robbery?"
