December 7, 2010 - CIRCUS WAREHOUSE GETS A NEW PAINT JOB

anonymous report:

"On 11-18-2010, the Shriner's Circus warehouse in Ft. Worth, TX received a new paint job, compliments of ALF, to let them know that circus cruelty to animals is not ok. The warehouse is used to store animals after they arrive by freight train, until they are transported to the circus location (Will Rogers Colliseum)."


November 25, 2010 - 20 TURKEYS RESCUED, TIRES SLASHED ON MOBILE SLAUGHTERHOUSE

anonymous report:

“During the early morning hours of November 14th, members of VT ARM liberated 20 turkeys that had been cruelly forced into a small pen without shelter. The pen had been set up along side a road as a marketing ploy. The decision to liberate the turkeys was made after it was learned that they were to be murdered that morning. It took the extraction team less than 5 minutes to breach the fence and liberate the turkeys. As a parting gift members of ARM slashed the tires of the mobile slaughter house, which had been parked less then 20 meters away, while the driver sat in the front seat smoking. Uncle Sam spent thousands training us to be the best and now those who think they can profit off the suffering of animals will learn that we are. We will use whatever means necessary to liberate animals, prevent cruelty and punish those who commit acts of cruelty. To the Bushway criminals, Happy Thanksgiving.”

November 16, 2010 - UCLA VIVISECTOR RECEIVES THREAT

anonymous report:

"Stephanie Groman is a twenty nine year old primate vivisector at UCLA. During graduate school, she learned to do terrible stuff to primates, such as addicting them to street drugs; exactly what Groman is currently doing at UCLA under the supervision of primate vivisector low-lives such as Edythe London and David Jentsch. Since she wouldn't listen to more polite pleadings to stop her heinous treatment of innocent primates, we mailed to Stephanie at [...] Midvale Avenue, Apartment [...] in Los Angeles some rusty razor blades tainted with AIDS-infected blood. The message is clear- PRIMATE VIVISECTION MUST BE STOPPED!

October 15, 2010 - FUR FARM INTELLIGENCE UNIT COMMUNIQUE

received anonymously:

"Fur Farm Intelligence Unit Communique #3

The Fur Farm Intelligence Unit is making public these never-before published fur industry addresses:

New mink farms

The addresses of these three farms have never been published. All three are owned by the Carson family of Highland, Utah. There are two new Utah farms owned by Larry Carson, and a third Idaho farm owned by his son Nathan Carson. The Carsons also own mink feed supplier Shoreline Farms.

Nate Carson
1174 South Hwy 81

Notes: Owned by Larry Carson. Feed suppliers are essential for the survival of the U.S. fur industry. There are only 10 other confirmed mink feed suppliers.

New fur industry researcher

Branson W. Ritchie
Department of Small Animal Medicine
College of Veterinary Medicine
University of Gerogia
Athens, GA

Notes: Richie has volunteered his research skills to the mink industry as part of the proposed Mink Genome Project. This project aims to alleviate the industry of one of its biggest threats: aleutian disease. He has offered cell mediated research to isolate mink genes that are resistant to AD. This research will be done in partnership with Dr. John Easley of Plymouth, Wisconsin, who is also a leading expert in mink disease. Ritchie is awaiting funding from the Fur Commission USA's research committee before the Mink Genome Project is launched.

The Fur Farm Intelligence Unit does not inflate the impact or significance of leaking secretive information as a tactic. The intelligence organ of this movement will never be more than an auxiliary service to the movement's teeth: Those who take these addresses and use them to achieve true animal liberation.

Despite efforts at secrecy over the location of their farms, feed manufacturers, equipment suppliers, and research facilities, we are approaching the day when every address in the fur industry is revealed and available for use by individuals who will bring its collapse.

The few murderers of animals for fur whose business addresses remain unexposed will soon be driven from hiding. The Fur Farm Intelligence Unit is being leaked information from the highest levels of the U.S. fur industry. This will become apparent in future communiques. More to come.

For animal liberation,

Fur Farm Intelligence Unit"

reported by activists in Hawaii:

"Early October:
traps were removed from the forest and destroyed."


October 11, 2010 - FENCES TORN DOWN AT DEER FARM

anonymous report:

"On the morning of October 9th, we raided a deer farm located at 32155 S Grimm Road in Molalla, OR. A large section of fencing was stripped away allowing the captive deer herd a chance to escape into the surounding forest. The venison meat industry remains small in this country, but as long as they exploit sentient animals, they will remain a target of the ALF. For the animals enslaved, mutilated, and murdered by this society: we will be tearing down the fences to set them free.

September 21, 2010 - CLAIM OF RESPONSIBILITY FOR MINK RELEASE

received anonymously:

"In the early hours September 9th 2010 the ALF paid a visit to the Beck's fur farm in Granite Falls, WA. Thanks to the news reports we know that we released approx. 400 of the mink there and all we can say is that it wasn't enough. We wish that there had been time that night to free all the prisoners that hell hole contains. We are heart broken for everyone left behind but take solace in the fact that we will do better the next time.

This action is dedicated to one who will only be known as x/one blue/one brown/all heart/x

July 28, 2010 - EXCLAMATION POINT ADDED TO FUR FARM'S CLOSURE!

Ylipelto

Ylipelto

anonymous communique:

"We delivered eight incendiary devices to the lovely folks at Ylipelto�s Fur Farm, at 92659 Simonsen Loop Road in Astoria on the morning of July 27th. It is nice to see that the enslavement, torture, and death of thousands of innocent creatures affords certain people luxuries like boats, nice cars, and various (expensive, no doubt) 'farm' machinery, and we were more than happy to alleviate them of these. A careful attack sent structures up in flame both in the front and rear of the property, simultaneously. We hope that this can leave an impression on our friends, Veikko & Eeva, that making such a living off of the subjugation of sentient creatures (for something as selfish and disgusting as the fashion industry, no less) will not be tolerated. We hope that others like them will also consider where their priorities lie (the nearby Wilkinson & Stunkard farms, to name a couple), and decide whether or not they�d like to be next.

� Don�t think that you�ve be given a choice; your actions serve as your voice."

A boat, a car, two forklifts and a barn were damaged by the fires. Henry Pelto (formerly Ylipelto), the son of the owner of the farm, told local media that the farm closed in December 2009. Activists released 1,500 mink from cages at the farm in October 2008. (photos: KATU.com)

May 5, 2010 - USA SHEEPSKIN COMPANY GUTTED BY FIRE

The Sheepskin Factory

A fire early on April 30 destroyed The Sheepskin Factory in Glendale, Colorado. The company makes products from the skins of sheep and cows. According to media reports, investigators believe the fire was intentionally set. The company's losses were estimated at $500,000. The owner did not have insurance on the destroyed machinery and inventory. Photo: Denver Post

Over 42 firefighters responded to a blaze at Sheepskin Factory April 30th in Denver, Colorado. The fire reportedly broke out at 3:15am and gutted the building. It has been ruled arson.
Sheepskin Factory sells sheep carcasses.
Agents from the the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are investigating the fire.
To date, neither the Animal Liberation Front nor other clandestine animal liberation group has claimed responsibility. Reporting on this action is not to be taken as a speculation of an animal liberation motive. Rather, I wish to offer what may be a broader and more accurate view of the scope of underground animal liberation activity.
Numerous unclaimed but �suspicious� actions are reported at animal abuse sites every year. For example the 2009 explosion at the only Slim Jim production facility in the U.S., for which a cause was not determined.
Similar unclaimed actions have been reported in Colorado. On January 13th, 2002, another sheepskin business went up in flames north of Denver in Greeley. The building was burned to the ground. No claim of responsibility was made in that fire either, but the fire was deemed suspicious due to A.L.F. graffiti threatening arson being found at a similar plant in Denver the previous month. This latest arson marks the second burned down sheep skin business in Colorado.


April 23, 2010 - ANIMAL LABS TAGGED

received anonymously:

"Pittsburgh, PA, USA

In honor of World Week for Animals in Laboratories, folks decided that the labs hidden behind fancy names and large buildings in the city needed a more visibility.

One building, Mellon Institute in the Oakland area of Pittsburgh, contains multiple animal testing facilities inside.

Large tagging stickers with 'Animal Research Torture Happens Here' and 'Animal Research Torture Facility' written on them with the word 'Research' scratched out were placed on the sign on the front of the building and on posts around the building.

On the rear side of the building, 'Animals Die Here' was painted on the side that faces the street.

There are several other animal torture facilities in the area. This is but one that hides behind the facade of being a welcoming historical landmark or university building. Behind the walls, animals suffer and die each day."

April 1, 2010 - NO FOOLING AROUND AT HOMES OF U OF U VIVISECTORS

received anonymously:

"April 1st - Salt Lake City, Utah

It may be april fools day, but the last thing we were doing was fooling around.

On the morning of april 1st, our cell visited the homes of three vivisectors from the University of Utah who have been known to test, torture, and kill many animals from local shelters in unjustified 'scientific' experiments. Unlike their drunken, wife abusing colleague Audie Levanthal who decided to quit vivisecting at the U of U after pressure from underground activists, these vivisectors decided to stay, praying that the new laws & legislation's against Above Ground Activists would help protect them. Well we aren't above ground activists & laws won't stop us from doing what is right & helping animals.

In a well executed plan our cell split up.

Our first group visited Robert H. Lane at:
4552 Jupiter Dr.
Salt Lake City, UT 84124

Where we vandalized nearby cars & left a 'cocktail' on his doorstep.

Our second group reported visiting Jennifer Ichida at:
422 1st Ave.
Salt Lake City, UT 84103

They reported also leaving a 'cocktail' on the front porch. They glued her front door, and sliced her screen door. They also reported vandalizing near-by cars.

The 3rd group of our cell reported visiting Alessandra Angelucci & Paul Bressloff at:
2705 E. Eagle Way
Salt Lake City, UT 84108

Angelucci does the killing while her partner Paul co-publishes her data. They both received a 'cocktail' on the doorstep. a 2 for 1 special.

We were quick in executing the attacks. We didn't stay to see if the doorstop surprises worked. But nevertheless the intent is still there.

We will not back down until you stop the killing.

This action is dedicated to all the heroes in jail & out that are still awaiting trial. Our love & strength is with you.

February 5, 2010 - WINDOWS ETCHED AT MCDONALDS

received anonymously:

"Tried out our new extremely corrosive ammonium bifloride/sulfuric acid bomb on a McDonalds in Utah.

Ammonium Bifloride is corrosive when applied to glass. It is easy to come by via internet or craft store. Sulfuric acid is water soluble and corrosive as well.

You can put the mixture in glass bottles and throw it at windows. If the window doesn't break then the contents inside will be sure to make the window unusable.

Other uses: put in glass spray bottles and simply spray 'paint' windows which will then become ruined completely.

The options are endless. If you are not comfortable with making your own. They sell glass etching solutions ready to go on the internet and in craft store. A lot of these are like paint and meant to stencil designs on windows. When the windows are sprayed with water, the chemicals react and they corrode the glass. So make your own stencils. When they come to clean off the 'graffiti' with water they will actually be doing your work for you.

We have a lot of this stuff. The window replacement companies are going to be really happy this year.

February 2, 2010 - ALF VISIT HORSE-CARRIAGE BUSINESS

received anonymously:

"While out walking around town one night we noticed a farm-like smell appear from what seemed like no-where. This struck us as odd, being that we were in the heart of Salt Lake City. We did some exploring and came across a building tucked away, hidden from view, near an unused parking-lot, which we later figured out was owned by 'carriage for hire'. Carriage for Hire is the last remaining horse-carriage service operating in Salt Lake City. Being curious, we entered the building and found a number of beautiful horses standing in mounds of feces scattered across the floor. The conditions these horses are living in is sadly disturbing. After letting the horses know we were not there to harm them and giving them some well needed attention, we returned to explore. We found some other rooms, one being full of the carriages. We left that night.

We returned a few nights later to '428 West 200 North, Salt Lake City, UT', which is the address, in case you are curious one night as well. Armed with glue and bits of metal, from hair-pins, we glued the locks on the carriage storage room making sure to insert bits of metal as well, assuring it was permanently locked for good. We gave the horses more attention, keeping the lock on their door free of glue, to assure they are attended to, and would be reachable for feeding and watering. Then we vanished into the night.

This is only a warning as locks can be replaced. Hopefully it kept the carriages locked up long enough for the horses to take a well deserved vacation. Be aware though, if it had only been carriages & the horses were not a part of the equation. There would be no more building left.

We do these actions because all lives deserve to be free. We aren't doing these actions out of violent hate. More so, we are doing these actions because we are compassionate beings who feel non-human animals deserve the same amount of respect all living creatures should have.

Leave the Horses alone, and pull your own carriage if you really must have one.

You've been warned, we are watching.

The Animal Liberation Front."
