“The Public Prosecutor of Brescia has ordered the seizure of Green Hill, the company Montichiari (Brescia) beagle breeding dogs for vivisection laboratories, long under fire from animal rights organizations. The operation, conducted by the Forest Service, is leading to the seizure of beagle dogs, both puppies and adults, and the entire structure for a total of about 5 hectares. Among the offenses alleged mistreatment of the animals. Green Hill is at the moment under a massive police raid with dozens of  policemen, carabinieri, forest services guards and political policemen  inside the place. They are identifying and numbering all dogs, while the  structure and all the animals will be “confiscated” for “animal cruelty” charges!  This does not mean they will be directly taken out of the structure, but  they will be definitely under legal control and will not be sold until new events.  This police action will take a long time and we are waiting for news from  our lawyer. our activists are there and the press is very very interested.  we asked to be the legal representatives for the dogs after the  confiscation, while it seems at the moment the police would name representative the city council, which is openly on green Hill side. This is not the closure but is an important step in a moment where the Senate is deciding the future of this farm.” (Tino Verducci)

This is a rare and decisive victory! It will be sealed if and when this investigation is over, all remained dogs are rehomed, and Green Hill Lab is as dead as the legitimations for vivisection. Congratulations GH activists, all of Italy, all anti-vivisection abolitionists, to all the animals saved and to be saved!!! Let us savor this moment and grow stronger!

ONTO THE NEXT TARGET!!
