HLS found in 1952 in the UK
Video footage shot covertly inside HLS by PETA showed HLS staff shaking, punching, and shouting at beagles in their care, caused the start of SHAC in 1999 by three British animal rights activists — Greg Avery, Heather James and Natasha Dellemagne.
The footage was broadcast by Channel 4 in the UK, the employees were dismissed and prosecuted, and HLS's licence to perform animal experiments was revoked for six months.
PETA stopped its protests against the company after HLS threatened it with legal action, and SHAC took over as a leaderless resistance (small independent group, difficult to stamp out)
