Brescia, July 2 - More than 2,500 dogs rescued from
abusive owners a year ago were officially granted new homes and
owners on Tuesday.
Prosecutors in Brescia formalized the adoption of the
beagles who were rescued from the controversial Green Hill
breeding facilities in July 2012.
The kennels in northern Italy where beagles were being bred
for scientific experiments were closed following numerous
protests and widespread public outcry.
Police seized more than 2,500 dogs during inspections of
the complex and three company managers have been probed for
animal cruelty.
Opponents of the facilities were jubilant after the
announcement was made Tuesday.
"This is great news - a major victory," said Rossella
Muroni, general manager of Legambiente.
Last month, the European Commission also ordered Italy to
demonstrate that it is complying with EU directives on animal
testing.
