Animal Lab Breeder Responds to Article, Takes Down Map of Farm

A bird breeder posts a response to this week’s article on Animal Liberation Frontline.

Metzer Farms, a breeder of birds for vivisection and food, responded today to Tuesday’s article on Animal Liberation Frontline by taking down a detailed map of their facility from their website, and replacing it with this message:

“Unfortunately we felt it necessary to remove this special drawing of our farm as it was recently displayed on the blog of a animal rights terrorism group as an example of a farm that would be “a prime target” for their organization since we sell animals.  This is the same organization that pridefully admitted burning 14 trucks at a California feed lot in January of this year.

Although we have nothing to hide and pride ourselves in our animal care, we do not want to provide a map of our farm to someone that may do harm to us or the animals under our care.

Please keep this in mind when you are asked for a donation to support an animal rights organization or to vote for the legislation they sponsor.”

A couple mistakes here:

*Obviously, the author (probably deliberately) confuses this website with the ALF itself.
*The last paragraph is completely nonsensical.

One last point:

Note this line: “we felt it necessary to remove this special drawing of our farm as it was recently displayed on the blog of a (sic) animal rights terrorism group“.

There is nothing about their blog being reposted that makes them any more of a target of groups like the Animal Liberation Front. As all animal exploiters fail to understand, you become a target of the ALF because you imprison and exploit animals. The people behind the above statement totally fail to understand why the ALF does its rescue work.

Places like Metzer Farms do not become targets because someone on a website merely observes they fit the profile of an ALF target –  they become targets because they profit from animal suffering. That’s it.

The message of my article and the purpose of posting the map was clear: You cannot on one hand offer large rewards for the capture of ALF members, rally for arrests and claim to be under “siege”, and on the other post detailed maps of your farm visible to everyone. It is a lie told right out in the open.
