Twelve hens liberated from SLU (Farming University of Sweden) – the first hen liberation from modified cages

Animal rights group Disobedient Animals (The Rescue Service Action 9) liberated twelve hens from Funbo-Lövsta Research Station near Uppsala on the night of April 14. The hens lived in so called modified cages, which prevent all types of natural behaviour. After the liberation the hens were transported to caring homes where they will live according to their nature. The group left a letter for the staff, signed with each group-member’s name, criticizing the modified cages.
-Switzerland cancelled research with the modified cages as early as the eighties, since hens need to move freely and flap their wings. It is unnecessary and pointless to research a system which will never be animal friendly. The research only caters to the battery hen industry. Since the cages violate the Animal Protection Act, we want the research to stop, says Jasmine Waara, who participated in the action.
