WAREHOUSE GETS A NEW PAINT JOB
"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)."

RESCUED, TIRES SLASHED ON MOBILE SLAUGHTERHOUSE
“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

INTELLIGENCE UNIT COMMUNIQUE
"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.

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
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.

DOWN AT DEER FARM
"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.

POINT ADDED TO FUR FARM'S CLOSURE!
"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.

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

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

"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

"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.
