Animal activists shackle farmers wife

Animal rights activists chained a 62-year old woman to a fence and demanded that she and her husband close their farm which breeds cats for medical research.

The two men attacked Katherine Brown while she was walking her dog by the River Windrush, minutes from her home at Hill Grove Farm, near Witney, Oxfordshire.

Mrs Brown freed herself after 10 minutes and raised the alarm.
