ALF return to Highgate Farm
Lewis Pogson, 22, pleaded not guilty to blackmail, burglary and criminal damage at Highgate Farm, Normanby-by-Spital, 12 miles north of Lincoln, in January last year.
Pogson also denied a further charge of interfering with a contractual relationship so as to harm an animal research establishment, and four conspiracy charges.
A total of 129 rabbits were stolen and £70,000 worth of damage was caused during a raid at Highgate Farm.
The damage included vehicles being smashed up and Animal Liberation Front graffiti being daubed on walls.

Pogson, of Bush Road, East Peckham, Tonbridge, was granted bail on a number of conditions, including the lodging of a £50,000 security, a night-time curfew and residence at his mother's address in West Dulwich, London.
Just in case there is any confusion -this was an ALF crime claimed on the SHAC website - strange that - goodbye Lewis,
Until ALL are caged
Just a reminder SHAC - you have already failed before you begin!
