In the early hours of this morning, Animal Freedom Movement (AFM) occupied the Marshall BioResources’ (MBR) puppy farm in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, for the second day in a row. The group, a project supported by Animal Rebellion, successfully liberated 5 beagles, who otherwise would have likely been used and eventually killed in animal testing experiments.
