Earth defenders has raided and destroyed hundreds of genetically modified trees at a research centre in Rotorua, New Zealand. 375 pine tree that were part of herbicide resistance and reproductive research have being axed and no one has claimed responsibility for the crime. Police are now looking for public help to catch the GM break-in gang. The group dug the inner security fence and not even spared a single pant. The trees were planted last August for a trial that was meant to take two to three years. Now, new genetically modified trees will have to be planted, and the trial started again. Not considering the disadvantages it own, the CEO of Scion, which conducted the research said, " This technology has substantial benefit to New Zealand, that's why we've been so persistent in pursuing this. The genetically modified security breach is embarrassing and expensive. It will cost $400,000 to replant and $600,000 in lost research time."
