Green Hill lab-dog breeding to be sold

Says Italy too restrictive on scientific use of animals

(ANSA) - Rome, November 22 - Marshall BioResources, an American multinational that provides purpose-bred animals for scientific research, is selling its Green Hill beagle-breeding facility in Montichiari near Brescia in northern Italy, saying that Italian law is "too restrictive" on animal testing.
    The European Commission has opened an infringement procedure against Italy for the same reason.
    The European directive on animal testing prohibits member States from imposing more restrictive laws unless they were already in effect prior to November 2010.
    Italy's harsher restrictions regarding dog, cat, and primate breeding for animal testing were introduced in 2014.
