(UK/US/ca) Animal Liberation Campaign Against Brea Medical Supply Company Turns Uglier
A 13-year war between a U.K.-based cosmetics company and militant animal rights activists has spilled over to a Brea medical supplier and the Orange County homes of its employees.
The latest flare-up was Sunday evening in Yorba Linda, where a female executive found her backyard pool water dyed red and "PUPPY KILLER" and other messages spray painted in red on her garage door and driveway.
Another message discovered on the garage door of vice president Allison Blackwell's home in the 5700 block of Via Del Potrero--before police were called just before 7 p.m.--was, "DROP HLS," a reference to Huntingdon Life Sciences. The British cosmetics company's animal testing has been targeted by the Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty campaign since 1999.
