reported by activists in Italy:

"February 8 - Minerbio (Bologna)
Local newspapers report that about 20.000 pheasants have been freed from a farm breeding them to rebuild hunting populations. The activists cut 5 out
of the 20 sheds imprisoning the animals and signed the action with
spraypainted slogans like 'free the animals' or '1945-2008- the holocauts
is not finished yet'.
The owner of the farm says he is importing the animals from eastern
european countries and he never had any problems or threats in 30 years of
activity. Damages are estimated at 10.000 euros."
