“After driving by the farm a couple of times to check for activity we approached the barn from the rear, furthest away from the house.
This was a free range egg farm with doors running down one side of the barns which led out onto a small section of outdoor space with a mesh floor. We tried each door until we found one which was slightly loose, after a few firm kicks it gave way allowing us to crawl inside. We quickly filled our bags with 17 hens who were being exploited for their eggs. Just as we filled our last bag a team member calmly alerted us to the farmer approaching with a torch. We scooped up all of our bags and disappeared into the dark.
These hens will live out their lives naturally and peacefully, free from human oppression.”
