Two animal activists arrested at Wodonga

clipped from
Two animal activists who chained themselves to railings outside a hunting expo on the NSW/Victorian border have been arrested.
Wodonga police were forced to use bolt cutters to remove the Canberra men who were taken to the local police station and charged.
Mr Connock was charged with trespass and resisting arrest and Mr Brennan with trespassing, a police said.
Both were released on bail.
Animal Liberation ACT spokeswoman Angie Stephenson compared the expo attendees to poachers in Africa.
"They are nothing but trophy hunters who mount animal heads on their walls and boast about the big kill," she said.
"Hunting any animal is a senseless act of cruelty, any reason to continue such slaughter can never be justified."
The hunting expo features about 200 exhibitors and allows people to gain relevant hunting-firearm permits and weapons.
