"During the early hours of Wednesday, October 2, the
Animal Liberation Front raided a mink farm near Lefeuvre and Downes Road
in Abbotsford, about an hour from Vancouver. The entire perimeter fence
at the back of the farm was cut before over 800 cages were opened to
allow the mink a chance to escape to freedom.
The surrounding ecosystem was ideal mink habitat, marshlands and dense
forest where the animals made a swift escape.
Contrary to popular belief, the Canadian mink industry is anything but
humane. The cages the mink were locked in were full of feces and mostly
rusted shut. Mink living in cages together had fought and plenty of the
animals were covered in severe wounds. Some cages had dead animals,
clearly left for weeks.
A myth put out by the mink industry claims that they cannot survive in
the wild, once released but that was proved as just myth when a BC
Wildlife Biologist stated that no one could tell him that they would not
survive in the wild. This was a direct quote from a Vancouver Sun
Article, published just after the release.
We stand in solidarity with the brave few who have taken direct action
to free mink across the United States and Canada this year. Let this
continue. Pelting season is still weeks away and the time to empty cages
is now. The farm house we raided was only 50 feet from the barns. Do not
let the closeness of the farm house deter you from liberating animals.
They need it now more than ever.
To those who say the animal liberation movement is dead, think again.
How can animal liberation be dead if the Animal Liberation Front is
You cannot kill an idea, and we will not be ruled by fear.
Until every cage is empty,

"Early Sunday morning, September 29, 2013, the Animal
Liberation Front spray painted license plates, glued locks, and slashed
tires at a poultry transport company in Smithville, Ontario. This action
was undertaken to prevent the transport of chickens from factory farm to
slaughterhouse. The action made local news and damages are estimated at
"On September 16 I tore down this makeshift deer stand
that would of been used to murder deer and wild turkey in this upcoming
hunting season in Simcoe,ON CA. I discarded the straps and seat used for
it far away so they could not be used in another stand to murder
animals. Until the exploitation and murder stops! ALF"
"The Dairy Farmers of Canada have launched a
multi-million dollar advertising campaign targeting the public with
their '100 good reasons' to drink milk propaganda. Last week we paint
bombed six of their dairy billboards in defense of the animals, the
environment and public health. As long as the Pattison Group is selling
ad space to the Dairy Farmers of Canada we will continue targeting them.
"In the early morning of August 26, 2013, the ALF raided
Royal Oak Fur Farm in Simcoe, Ontario. We approached the fur farm and
laid down in the tall grass so we could watch the guard's building for
any sign of movement. Once we were satisfied it was empty, we cut the
bands that attach the chainlink fence to the poles and then tore a large
area of fence down at the back of the farm and opened the front gate. We
estimate we released about 750 mink and 50 fox. The fox almost seemed to
understand what was happening because once they realized they were free,
they wasted no time leaving their cages and escaping through the holes
we made in the fence. After the fur farmers house lights flicked on, we
quickly started pulling off breeding cards and tossing them around the
empty cages, and then made our retreat through the corn fields with a
noisy group of mink experiencing their first taste of freedom. We won't
stop until this, and all fur farms are empty. - ALF"
"Today in Ontario, Canada, the ALF superglued the
ignitions of trucks at the slaughterhouse called Abingdon Meat Packers.
All the trucks were left unlocked, so the keys were taken and replaced
with small pieces of metal from roofing staples and then super glue.
Abingdon Meat Packers exclusively kills baby animals and gluing these
locks will hopefully disrupt their operations by stopping them from
transporting the dead animals to food processing plants. -ALF"
In response to the article in the National Post
glorifying Eugene Klein and his disgusting business, Capilano Furs and
Taxidermy Studios, the Animal Liberation Front took direct action to
destroy the interior of Eugene�s $60 000 truck.
Under the cover of darkness, we approached the residence
of Eugene Klein and shot syringes filled with a foul smelling liquid
through the rubber sealing and into his truck.
A message to Eugene Klein:
Eugene, as you and your wife Edith enter the last years
of your pathetic, miserable life, you will watch an industry you helped
build crumble to the ground.
You were quoted in the newspaper after the last time the
ALF visited your house as saying you had guns and were not afraid of us.
Well Eugene, we are clearly not afraid of you either and you will have
to kill us to stop us.
The Animal Liberation Front is always watching. We dare
you and your wife to go away on vacation.
Until every cage is empty,
The Animal Liberation Front"
Note: Capilano Furs has been targeted by the
ALF at least twice before, in
"June 15, 2013 - Welland, Ontario, Canada - A lone ALF
activist sabotaged trucks used to bring chickens to a slaughterhouse in
broad daylight. The plan was to slash the tires on all of the trucks and
slip away through the forested area behind the slaughterhouse, named
Cami International Poultry. Truck tires are under high pressure and can
explode if slashed, so first a screwdriver was used to compress the
valves on the tires to lower the pressure before the sidewalls were
punctured. While in the process of letting the air out, an employee
pulled into the parking lot. Luckily, the activist's vehicle was parked
far away from the slaughterhouse and he was able to slide under a truck
and out of view. Letting air out of tires is quite noisy, so the
activist had to stop to keep from being noticed by the employee. The
tires that had been deflated had their sidewalls destroyed with an
icepick, and the remaining trucks' license plates were covered in red
paint to keep them from being driven. "Animal Liberation Front" was also
spray painted on the cages of one of the trucks. The truck ride exposes
the chickens to the elements and leaves them without any food or water,
a final act of torture before having their necks slashed open and being
dunked in hot water. This action will hopefully hamper the
slaughterhouse's productivity, and cost them money for killing innocent
In April, a duck hunting blind was destroyed by
activists in Prince Edward Island, Canada. According to the activists,
"shotgun shells and duck feathers littered the area." "ALF" was spelled
out with branches for the hunters to see.
"As of March 2013 we have removed and destroyed
approximately 200 fur traps in Ontario. The traps were snares and
Conibears intended to murder beaver, rabbits and other innocents.
Tragically we were too late for two rabbits and one raccoon, whose
bodies and internal organs had already been eaten into by snares. We
will be forever haunted by our memories of their bodies, we will forever
continue removing traps and we encourage others to get in the bush and
help smash the fur industry. Look for tell tale signs of traps and trap
lines; flagging tape tied to branches, repeated tracks entering the
bush, and poles or sticks protruding from bodies of water especially
near beaver lodges, where trapping is frequent. Join the burgeoning
ranks of trap saboteurs!
At this moment in Seattle people are gathering in a
grotesque celebration of the barbaric fur trade. They are selling untold
numbers of skins from innocent animals in the name of their meaningless
god, money. In response to these killers we returned to Vancouver to
visit another house of horrors, the Glass House at 1425 Clyde Avenue in
West Vancouver. The Glass House is owned by notorious animal abuser Jody
Claman. Jody Claman supports and promotes the abuse, torture and murder
of tens of thousands of innocent furry animals on her stupid tv show
real housewives of vancouver. She has a reputation for wearing dozens of
dead animals in the form of her grotesque full fur coats. She prances
around through her useless, meaningless life looking like a psychotic
bastard child of cruella deville and barbie. Her store sells both fur
and feathers. No doubt she is unaware that these feathers are ripped
from the birds as they are still alive, or boiled off of them in
Jody, you lied to the media saying your vile fur is
second hand, but we know that you are lying to hide your embarrassment
for your violent habits. You are also lying on your website saying you
sell raccoon fur that you are either too stupid to know is dog fur or
you just like lying about it.
During the night of March 21 we descended upon Vancouver
to visit her horrid store. We squirted foul liquid in the door to
destroy anything it touched. We also reminded the Glass House that they
are under surveillance by signing our name ALF in large painted letters.
We splashed the remaining paint on the front of the store to warn your
community about what you do to innocent animals every single day in the
name of your obscene 'fashion sense.'
If we ever find fur in your store again or on your
stupid show we'll see you at home next time.
It's time to realize that you are not the only person on
Earth. Every single day millions and millions of mink, foxes, dogs,
rabbits, and other animals are trapped in cages, pacing back and forth
from boredom and terror. They see their family members dumped
unceremoniously into gas chambers and gassed to death. The chambers'
walls gouged with the claw marks of the condemned desperate to escape,
though no escape is possible. The foxes have rods put in their genitals
and are electrocuted, causing their tiny eyes to bulge out as the life
drains from them. The thousands of dogs whose carcasses are in Jody's
store had their skulls bashed in so that she could feel special, wearing
their bodies around like a scarf.
Get it through your head, if you continue killing them,
you will continue hearing from us.
For the animals, who are unable to save themselves,
According to local media reports, on
February 19 netted-cage traps used to capture deer as part of a cull in
Cranbrook, British Columbia were vandalized. 24 mule deer were killed

"On a late rainy January 5th night an ALF cell attacked
an unoccupied police cruiser via Molotov cocktail. This cruiser was
parked there to intimidate or detour any future attacks or protests
on Megan Halprin's residence or the Snowflake fur shops she owns.
However, the increased police presence will not stop our graceful and
successful attacks. Make no mistake, this is war. This is a fur war.
This is a class war. The elite and the police are the enemy and will
be treated as such. It is without a doubt that oppression will come,
whether it is in the form of arrests, harassment by the fascist state
or by a former comrade turned snitch who can't take the heat. We must
stay strong and united. If you snitch, you are an element of the
state and will be treated as the enemy. ALF is alive and well. Megan
Halprin you are never safe. Police you are never safe. You should
have expected us."
"We do not know if this has ever occurred before. Last
night, Vancouver fur shop Speiser Furs was unknowingly visited by two
seperate ALF cells. We learned this morning that individuals went to the
front of the store to glue the locks and paste leaflets, while we were
at the back of the store using hypodermic needles to shoot a foul
substance into the store through cracks in the door. To the other cell,
while we have no idea who you are, we hope with our combined efforts
these actions will shut the doors of this house of horrors for good. How
romantic it would have been if we had crossed paths. This was our second
attack this week, three days earlier we did the same at Max Mara. We
estimate several thousand dollars in damage and dozens of ruined
jackets. That is what they get for boldy displaying the abused carcasses
of fur bearing animals in their windows. ALF Vancouver"
"Last night, two wicked stores profiting off the torture
and mutilation of non-humyn and humyn animals had their locks glued and
'ALF' flyers stuck into their mail slots. The locks were glued with a
toothpick and crazy glue, for extra stickage, and the flyers were wiped
clean of any and all fingerprints. It is our intention to let these
stores know that their very existence is the impetus for our struggle.
Capitalism has driven humynity to exploit the earth and her animals, and
has created class divisions so fierce that it is very difficult to
realize our dreams. We strive for a world where we are not stuck inside
such rigid boxes, and will continue to attack the social order on as
many fronts as we can (we're just getting warmed up). These two
stores, Speiser Furs and Black Sheep on Granville Street, Vancouver BC,
profit off the lives of animals who were born into an existence of
torture and misery. Perpetual struggle! Laws can go f***
themselves. ALF Vancouver, Coast Salish Territories"
"Last night Toronto joined the world wide war against
the trade in animal skins. Four Seasons Furs and T.O. Leather Fashions

This was your first attack but will not be your last.
"On the morning of November 25, 2012 in
Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, we gained entry to an equipment storage
building at a factory poultry farm by cutting the padlock off of the
latch on the front door. Once inside, we smashed windows and lights on
tractors, glued locks, and graffitied the walls. We also took paperwork
and keys to some of the machinery that were left inside the building.
The owners of the factory farm should understand that our actions will
only increase in size in the future, and they are going to need much
more than a padlock to stop us. - ALF"
"during the night of october 31 lux boutique in downtown
vancouver was visited by the alf. no one is unnoticed who profits off of
cruelty and killing. the door was bolted shut to add difficulty but the
benefit of syringes is they puncture the seal around the door jamb.
through the door we shot foul smelling liquid designed to get into the
fabric of anything near it.
snowflake furs has reopened since they were visited.
they reported that the attack caused at least $500,000 in damage. thats
not good enough for the foxes pacing on a fur farm right now who will
die next year so that you can make a few dollars. the murderers continue
to cry how unfair it is that they are persecuted, humble torturers that
they are. when your life is dedicated to causing suffering, polluting
the planet and lying to your customers - you will continue to be
persecuted. and stop telling your customers that your fur comes from
canada. most of it is rex rabbit and all of your rabbit bodies come from
china. ive seen your financials, i know where you shop.
this is a challenge to activists around the world. too
many suffer and die for their fur and leather. you can make a
difference. hypodermic needles filled with whatever you can get your
hands on. even bleach or drain cleaner can make fur unsellable. there is
nothing more important than defending those who suffer the most who
cannot defend themselves. think of them, think of the planet, think of
the suffering. you can make a difference for animals.

empty. the alf will always find a way."

STORE: AN UPDATE FROM THE ALF
"Five weeks ago we took
against Snowflake Furs and Speiser Furs in Vancouver Canada. We used 10
large syringes with 16 gauge needles to shoot a foul substance into the
stores through small spaces in the doors. Syringes have the ability to
shoot more than 25 feet into the building onto their merchandise causing
serious economic damage. The Pacific Center Snowflake Furs location
is now closed indefinitely. The store is gutted and lifeless, how
We will stop when the violence and murder stops and
it is only a matter of time before actions like these start occurring at
the other Snowflake locations in Whistler and Banff. To anyone who
does not understand why fur stores are being targeted in this way please
search 'fur cruelty' or 'skinned alive for fur' on your computer and
spend some time witnessing the horrific fur trade.
According to media
reports, a noxious substance was sprayed into Snowflake Furs and Speiser
Furs in downtown Vancouver late on August 20. Reportedly, syringes were
used to spray liquid into the stores through gaps around the front
Animal activists are suspected of being
responsible for the attacks. Both fur stores have been targeted by the

in defense of the horses at Vancouver's Hastings Racecourse. We knew it

visited by the ALF. Capilano Furs, Speiser Furs, Snowflake Furs and
Pappas Furs were covered in red paint to remind the public of the

owner of Capilano Furs is dumb enough to run his fur business out of his
home in North Vancouver so we also painted his $50,000 dodge truck and
the brand new VW sitting in his driveway.

out that every time you scrub the paint off of your house, we will just
replace it again. the black looks nice on your front door. see you soon
"During the night of november 26 notorious owner of
snowflake furs megan halpren had her house again covered in paint. We
know full well that this annoyed you and yet it is not a shadow of the
pain, psychological trauma, or fear that the tens of thousands of
animals you sentence to death every year live and die in. Your worst day
is a world better than their best. You are a criminal and a monster, we
will continue to escalate our visits until you drop fur entirely or go
out of business.

we'll be more creative and make better use of our visit.

cruelest businesses- SPEISER FURS.
We brought a backpack with us
and in it was an industrial pressurized chemical sprayer with a two foot
long spraying wand. We inserted the spraying wand into their mail slot
and sprayed 4 litres of a highly corrosive chemical onto their racks of
jackets. The pressurized sprayer has the ability to reach more than 25
feet so we are confident that we were able to soak almost every rack in
the store. We made sure to glue the locks on the front and back entrance
to delay them from gaining access to the store in the morning allowing
the chemical to cause sufficient damage to the pelts.

decided to do what the Canadian government should have done in the first
place, punish Outdoor Adventures for ordering the deaths of 100 used up
sled dogs. We covered their entire head office with red paint and
damaged their windows for all the tourists to see. The reason the
Canadian government may have ignored this case of animal cruelty is
because they are too busy setting a quota of 400 000 seals for the seal
slaughter. Our entire country is run by animal abusing scumbags.....

A message to Joey Houssain, owner of Outdoor
Adventures. We know you didn't commit the actual murders yourself, but
neither did Hitler and you ordered those dogs to be killed. We know you
still have more animals and if we find out that one more innocent animal

home, and by that we mean we know where you live.
In a country
