November 30, 2013 - 100+ CAGE TRAPS DESTROYED, BADGER CULL ABANDONED
More than 100 cage traps used to capture badgers have been stolen or destroyed in west Gloucestershire. According to a BBC report, "cages had been cut in half with bolt croppers and others had been hit with sledge hammers or flattened by people jumping on them."
The British government's "badger cull," an ill-conceived plan to stop the spread of TB in cows, ended on November 30, three weeks earlier than planned. Hundreds of badgers in Gloucestershire and Somerset were needlessly killed since the start of the cull in August.

September 7, 2013 - BADGERS STILL SNUFFLING AROUND NFU MUTUAL
received anonymously (click on photos for larger versions):
"In June we reported our hacks on NFU Mutual, the financial arm of the animal hating NFU. Since June we have not only kept our access to NFUM databases but expanded it and now we even have access to their mail servers. As we sat in our setts it was amusing to read the emails detailing their inept attempts to uncover us and even more funny to see them congratulating themselves that 'no hack had occurred'!
We warned we would use the details we found on NFUM servers to financially destroy those involved in the cull. The cull started last week and we have now uploaded the details (including account information) of those known to be involved in the cull to several 'carding' websites where they will be used for identity theft or just to empty their bank accounts. These farmers and landowners wont be able to fund the slaughter of our wildlife with no money. When we find others involved in the cull we will upload their details.
We were surprised that NFUM failed to close their massive security holes after we released the statement in June. But having seen the emails we now know it is simply because their IT support is crap.
In addition to financial details we found other useful data such as car reg details of those we know involved in the cull. We've attached photos of the reg details of vehicles insured at the Forthampton estate.
The real battle to save our friends in the Somerset and Gloucestershire kill zones is with the brave hunt sabs who will be out every night saving lives. Those of us who's setts are too far away to directly help our friends in danger will continue to find new exploits to attack NFUM.
NFU Mutual is the financial arm of the NFU. They provide millions every year in donations to the NFU. Without NFUM the NFU would not have the money to lobby our corrupt politicians to keep laws on animal welfare lax. With No NFUM, there would be No NFU and so no live export trade from the UK and no badger cull. NFUM's existence causes needless suffering to millions of animals.

June 10, 2013 - NFU MUTUAL HACKED BY BADGERS
"NFU Mutual is the commercial arm of the National Farmers Union
(NFU). They provide a huge part of the income for the NFU and enable it to be a
lobbying powerhouse in UK politics. The funding they provide to the NFU is used
to ensure that animal welfare regulations on farmers remain lax; that farmers
continue to receive huge subsidies; that the horrific live export trade can
continue and also ensure that they are able to get the government to allow them
to persecute wildlife such as badgers in complete disregard to the law which has
them as a protected species. The NFU and NFU Mutual are so closely linked that
NFU reps are also sales agents for NFU Mutual. NFU Mutual makes the profit that
greases the wheels of political lobbying to allow the slaughter of our innocent
wildlife. Last September we decided to come out of our sett and get hacking NFU
Mutual, our biggest target.
As more people are identified as being part of the badger cull we will exploit the details we have on them. We will show the same mercy to their finances that they show to the lives of badgers. We already have plans to use the details we have on some of the more high profile supporters of the cull.
This is Bodger and Badger. NFU Mutual bodged their security and so we are now badgering them.
Badgers have friends, and those friends are hackers.

January 18, 2013 - GAVIN MEDD-HALL RELEASED
On October 25, 2010, six animal rights activists (Alfie Fitzpatrick, Tom Harris, Jason Mullen, Nicola Tapping, Nicole Vosper, Sarah Whitehead) were sentenced for their involvement in the Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) campaign. The activists had pleaded guilty to either "conspiring to interfere with the contractual relations of an animal research organization," or "conspiracy to blackmail" companies linked to the notorious animal testing lab, Huntingdon Life Sciences.
Seven other activists (Dan Amos, Gregg Avery, Natasha Avery, Gavin Medd-Hall, Heather Nicholson, Gerrah Selby, Dan Wadham) were jailed in January 2009 following their convictions on similar charges.
The purely political prosecutions and harsh and unjust sentences are an attempt by the British government to crush dissent and to stop anyone from speaking out against vivisection.
After serving 2 years in prison, Dan was released in July 2010.
Gregg was released in October 2011 after completing his 9 year sentence.
Natasha was released in October 2011 after completing her 9 year sentence.
Sentence: 1 year suspended sentence
Sentence: 5 years
In January 2011, one year was added to Tom's original 4 year sentence after he was found guilty of involvement in vandalism at companies linked to Huntingdon Life Sciences in 2008.
Gavin was released in January 2013 after serving 4 years of his 8 year sentence.
Jason was released in October 2011 after completing his 3 year sentence.

Sarah was released from prison in June 2012 after completing her 6 year sentence.
January 12, 2013 - ALF/ELF SABOTAGE ROAD CONSTRUCTION
"Combe Haven. 7th-8th January 2013.
Acting in solidarity with the campaign against the Bexhill-Hastings link road, activists sabotaged contractors attempts to force local wildlife to migrate away from the site of the proposed road.
Wire mesh and wooden doors covered all but one entrance to each badger sett in the area, in an attempt to encourage the badgers to move into human-built setts prior to mating season. The mesh and doors surrounding the badger setts have since been dismantled to encourage the badgers to stay in their habitat of choice.
Newt-nets have also been set up by contractors with the same goal in mind, plastic sheeting staked along the route of the road a foot below and above ground, forcing newts, insects and other small animals out of the area. Thus these nets have also been attacked, torn out of the ground and smashed.
Not only do these actions allow wild creatures to exist where they choose, but slows the build of the road, as the contractors attempt to greenwash their mindless destruction of animal habitats and local natural environments by 'sparing the animal's lives' in this manner and cannot proceed with the road building until they say they are certain that the local wildlife has migrated away from the site of ecological destruction.
After witnessing the surveyors dismay upon noticing the trashed nets, these acts of sabotage will only continue and increase in their severity until those who choose convenience and profit over life have suffered at least equally in their fight for the absolute control and destruction of the natural world.
January 2, 2013 - AGAINST PRISONS, AGAINST ZOOS
anonymous report, from Indymedia UK:
"We started 2013 as we mean to carry on, with an attack on the front entrance building of Bristol Zoo. All the glass front doors and windows were smashed. The building and 'Bristol Zoo' lettering was attacked with paint bombs as well as a paint bomb inside the building. 'Liberate' was sprayed across the front.
Zoos put themselves forward as champions of conservation but the reality is very different. Their 'conservation' is part of the same arrogant hypocritical mindset that places humans separate and above all other living things, and aims for domination and subjugation of nature. Wild creatures are hunted, some to extinction, exploited, and their habitats wrecked. The ones that are lucky enough to be 'saved' are put in cages and this is presented as somehow protecting and helping them.
Zoos are upheld as bastions of education. We can know all we need to know about this or that creature except how to show them basic respect. What it's really about is teaching people that non-human animals are there for our entertainment, and that the entire non-human world exists only for our use. People's need to see and experience something wild is very marketable and exploitable. Behind all the rhetoric and reinvention of zoos lies the cruel reality as always of money and profit by all means necessary. Once we see through their carefully constructed image there is no defence such institutions of slavery can employ against our reasons to attack them.
In the zoo, people get used to the necessity and desirability of cages. Once free animals, pacing their cages and staring vacantly at the bars are a sad reflection of our own captivity.
With this small but successful act we draw a line in the sand between us and the dominator of every creature including ourselves.
On New Years Eve there is a tradition around the world of taking action against the prison system and showing solidarity with prisoners. We continue and extend this tradition in the spirit of total liberation for human and non-human animals alike. We also have not forgotten or forgiven the violence used by the police against demonstrators outside Horfield prison last new years eve.
We will keep hitting them where and when they don't expect it - They can never be everywhere and we will never accept captivity or imprisonment of any sort. We dedicate this action to anarchist prisoners Marco Camenisch, Cristobal Franke 'Mono' and Osman Evcan."
