27 Quails Released

5/7/10

mmm

An example of how social networks can help animals:

Yesterday night, we found a news about slaughterers protesting about the closure of the slaughterhouse in Bilbao where they had been working in the last years. Their protest consisted in giving away living quails to the public (with the idea that they would later kill the animals to eat them). At 23 pm we asked local activists to go there, get all the quails they could to later release them:

This morning, fifteen activists saved most of them, 27 quails were released an hour later into the wild.

The media (press & tv) has also covered the story on how the animal rights people saved the animals and boycotted the slaughterers.
