Green Hill dogs will not be returned to facility, says court

(ANSA) - Rome, August 3 - A court in the northern Italian town of Brescia ruled on Friday that the 2,500 dogs confiscated by police from the controversial Green Hill facilities will not be returned to the kennels where they were being bred for scientific experiments. The beagles, half of which are three to eight months old and many pregnant adult females, were seized during inspections in preparation for the closure of the breeding center owned by the multinational firm Marshall Farms. Police inspections led to three company managers being put under investigation for animal cruelty. The court ruled that adoptions started last week, overseen by the Italian animal rights association LAV and environmental advocacy group Legambiente, will continue. However, the confiscated facility will be returned to Marshall Farms.
