Green Hill

On Saturday, April 28, during a large demonstration outside Green Hill, a huge facility in northern Italy that supplies beagles to laboratories across Europe, protesters climbed over a fence, entered the kennels and carried away approx. 30 beagles. The overwhelmed police managed to arrest 12 activists (the activists were released after two nights in jail). Green Hill is owned by US-based Marshall BioResources.
