Two ARAs arrested at hunting expo
Two animal activists who chained themselves to railings outside a hunting expo on the NSW/Victorian border have been arrested. Animal Liberation ACT activists, Bernie Brennan, 43, and Chris Connock, 22, chained themselves to the Wodonga Leisure Centre to protest the nation's largest animal hunting expo.
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.
The men were among 12 activists from Animal Liberation ACT who travelled to Wodonga to protest against the expo.
