The early release from jail of an animal rights activist who broke into a laboratory and later threatened its boss has been criticised by his victim.
Keith Mann was jailed for 18 months in April for raiding Hampshire's Wickham Laboratories and threatening its technical director in court.
Mann, 39, from Poole, Dorset, was freed on 31 October after serving six months and has been electronically tagged.
Victim Chris Bishop said his early release sent out the "wrong message".
Trouble 'just started'
Mann was originally given a 230-hour community punishment order, increased to 12 months in prison on appeal, for organising the raid and stealing 695 mice in December 2003.
As the activist walked free, he passed the public gallery and threatened Mr Bishop, saying: "Your trouble has only just started - you will need to look under your bed."
He was brought back before the same judge at Portsmouth Crown Court and imprisoned for a further six months.
Mr Bishop said of Mr Mann's release: "It sends out the wrong message to others who may think of being involved in this that it's not dealt with seriously enough."
