630 Birds Liberated from East Midlands Farms

12 11 2011

From Indymedia UK:

Claims have been made that hundreds of birds have been freed from farms across the East Midlands.

According to an anonymous communique, five hundreds hens were taken from battery egg farms in Lincolnshire. A further one-hundred-and-thirty turkeys were removed from a farm in Norfolk where they were being reared for seasonal slaughter.

The liberation was claimed in memory of the late Barry Horne, an animal rights activist who died in a prison hunger strike in protest at the government’s policies on vivisection.
