New York, New York, U.S. - Carr Securities released a statement saying that it had withdrawn from working with the animal-testing company Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) after animal liberation graffiti appeared on a New York yacht club associated with the company. It may have also been the reason the New York Stock Exchange dramatically balked on listing shares of the company only minutes before it was due to begin trading. HLS was forced to quit the London stock market and the NYSE in 2000 after animal rights protesters targeted shareholders and market makers. In North Wales the managing director of Llanberis company Euro/DPC had his car and garage vandalized because his company supplies HLS.
