Aktion 14 - Farväl äggindustri

Hatchery rendered harmless

In the early hours of April 27, Swedish animal rights group "Bye Bye Egg Industry" (The Rescue Service Action 14) entered the Gimranäs hatchery, the largest chicken breeder in Sweden. Inside they halted the chicken breeding by dismantling brooding machines and other equipment used for nursing eggs, which are mainly bred to produce battery hens.

Further reading about the action—and about latest developments—can be found on the web page of Bye Bye Egg Industry at www.raddningstjansten.org/byebyeegg/

During the group’s last meeting, on March 12, 2005, they decided to officially dissolve Bye Bye Egg Industry. The remaining coffers, about 2000 SEK, have been donated to a home for animals.

Gimranäs reported for crimes against the Animal Protection Act.
