(ANSA) - Rome, July 25 - Adoption procedures will begin on
Friday for the 2,400 dogs destined for scientific
experimentation rescued from the controversial Green Hill
breeding facilities in northern Italy, said ex-tourism minister
Maria Vittoria Brambilla at a press conference Wednesday.
The announcement was made together with Italy's State
Forest Police, who said that 50% of the confiscated beagles are
3-8 months old and many are pregnant adult females who were used
as breeders.
The dogs were seized during inspections last week in
preparation for the closure of a center owned by the
multinational firm Marshall Farms.
Police said that three managers at the facility are under
investigation for animal cruelty following inspections.
"The closing and subsequent legal procedures are
history-making for animal rights," said Brambilla.
The Italian animal rights association LAV and environmental
advocacy group Legambiente will assist with placing the dogs in
homes.
Operations sparked "a great interest not only nationally
but also internationally, especially in the foreign press," said
police spokesman Stephen Cazora.
