Last Green Hill beagles placed in homes


(ANSA) - Rome, September 20 - The last of the dogs saved
from the controversial Green Hill breeding facilities last July
were placed in homes on Thursday.
At a ceremony celebrating the adoptions, Senate Speaker
Renato Schifani said that he hoped "animal experimentation comes
to an end soon".
The kennels in northern Italy where beagles were being bred
for scientific experiments were closed following numerous
protests and wide-spread public outcry.
"Politicians should never lose touch with public opinion.
It would be an unforgivable mistake if they did," said Schifani.
Police in July seized more than 2,500 dogs during
inspections of the complex and three company managers have been
probed for animal cruelty.
The last of the confiscated dogs, a mother and her two
puppies, were delivered to their new home Thursday after a month
of rehabilitation in a canine center.
The puppies had health issues, and the mothers had never
seen sunlight and could not drink normally since they were
hydrated through a forced-drip system when in captivity,
said Eleonora Bizzozero, head of the rehabilitation center.
