A village in the midlands is being targeted by violent animal rights

activists, BBC Radio Four's Today programme reported this morning.

The situation in the village, which was not named, is the subject of Radio

Four's Face the Facts programme today.

The community is being targeted because one of its residents runs a guinea

pig farm, breeding animals for experiments, Today said. Not only his family,

but also his neighbours and the pub, golf club and other businesses in the

village have received hate mail and threats from animal rights activists and

had their homes and cars attacked.
