Animal Liberation Front Rescues 20 Rabbits in South Carolina
Return Visit Promised to Blue Chip Farms, Raising Rabbits for Their Meat

Fountain Inn, SC: In an anonymous communique received by the North American Animal Liberation Press Office, activists from the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) claim to have rescued 20 rabbits destined for slaughter at Blue Chip Farms, 268 Hill Top Drive in Fountain Inn. Return visits were promised if the farm did not stop killing rabbits. Photographs of the activists and rescued rabbits were included with the communique, and are posted on the Press Office website at www.animalliberationpressoffice.org/communiques/2007-02-20_bluechiprabbits.htm.

Since 1982, Dean and Arlene Goforth have made a business of raising and killing rabbits to sell their meat. Their website proudly proclaims "America's #1 Package of Rabbit Meat"; photos on the site depict rabbits in small cages, where presumably they spend the entirety of their short lives before being slaughtered. They are killed at 7 to 8 weeks of age.

The communique received by the Press Office reads, in part:
The ALF struck the Blue Chip Farm Inc. in Fountain Inn, SC after giving warning of impending action due to failure to cease and desist the slaughter of rabbits for food and fur. 20 rabbits were freed with 4 rabbits taken to be placed in homes. The ALF regrets not being able to save them all but still sees last night as a victory.

Press Officer Linda Greene remarks: "It looks like some people will kill anything for a profit. Thousands of rabbits are suffering and killed needlessly at the hands of callous people like the Goforths simply so they can line their pockets. Anyway, the last thing Americans, known for their obesity and high levels of heart disease and stroke, need is more animal flesh high in fat and cholesterol."
