20 Turkeys Liberated By The Animal Rights Militia
Just before Thanksgiving, the Animal Rights Militia liberates 20 turkeys in Vermont
After a year that saw few liberations of domesticated animals, the Animal Rights Militia liberated 20 turkeys from a roadside pen in Vermont. The liberation came just hours before the turkeys were to be killed.
Tires on a mobile slaughter vehicle were also slashed.
The full communique received by the Animal Liberation Press Office reads:
“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 drive 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.”
