They have broken through or climbed over the gates networks. They made their way inside the farm and opened the cages, taking away puppies, pregnant and all the little dog beagle who managed to find.

The procession started from the parking lot of PalaGeorge, was attended by about 1000 people came from all over North Italy and also from the center.

Inside the Green Hill 5 huts are locked up to 2500 adult dogs, plus several litters. A lager made of animal shelters closed, aseptic, without open spaces without natural light or air.

Green Hill Farm and Marshall also offer its customers on demand surgical treatments, including the cutting or removal of the vocal cords of some glands.
For Green Hill and Marshall Farm animals are just merchandise, objects to breed and sell, without the slightest scruple about pain and suffering – mental and physical – that they will suffer.
