On the 17th of March 1990 Barry Horne, Keith Mann and Danny Attwood (of a small Animal Liberation Front cell) raided Harlan Interfauna, a British company in Cambridge which supplied laboratory animals and organs. Entering the animal units through holes they cut in the roof of the complex, they successfully liberated 82 beagle puppies and 26 rabbits. They also removed documents which listed Interfauna’s business dealings. All branding tattoos were removed from the dog’s ears and they were dispersed to good homes across the UK. As a result of evidence found at the scene and in the activists’ homes, Mann and Attwood were convicted of conspiracy to burgle and were sentenced to nine and eighteen months respectively.
