Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The campaign against Highgate Rabbit Farm, also known as the Close Highgate Farm campaign, is a series of direct actions by anti-vivisection activists. Highgate Rabbit Farm in Market Rasen, Lincolnshire in England is licensed by the Home Office to breed rabbits and ferrets for animal-testing facilities, including Huntingdon Life Sciences. Actions have included a raid by the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) and an arson claimed by by the Militant Forces Against HLS. The ALF raid in 2008 saw 129 rabbits removed and 100,000-worth of damage to property. The campaign has been linked to activists involved in Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC). Highgate Farm, based in the village of Normanby by Spital, Market Rasen, is one of a number of animal-testing facilities in the UK that have been targeted, and in several cases closed, by anti-vivisection campaigners since 1997. Consort Kennels, which bred beagles for animal research, was closed that year after a ten-month campaign. Shortly afterwards, Save the Hill Grove Cats-run by the same group of campaigners-was set up in opposition to Hill Grove farm in Oxfordshire, which bred cats for laboratories, successfully closing the farm in 1999.show more
