Document: Complete set of internal fur industry security alerts

Read complete set of 42 leaked Fur Commission security alerts in one PDF.

Over the past month, I have posted 35 security alerts sent to fur farmers by the Fur Commission (and 7 more in the year prior).

The audience for these is probably very small, of interest to people like:

  • Activists interested in how industry talks about them when they think no one is listening.
  • Those who end up in these alerts as “suspects” for being seen near fur farms (for whatever reason).
  • The anonymous individuals of the Animal Liberation Front, whose work is the primary inspiration for these alerts.

While the audience is limited, I decided to post these over the past month in the interest of documenting a rare glimpse into the how an industry under siege responds to the threat of animal rights activists.

I have compiled every security alert I’ve obtained into one PDF document.

Download here.

Some background, if you haven’t followed this series:

Animal Liberation Frontline has obtained dozens of internal fur industry “security alerts.” These bulletins are sent to fur farmers via email and fax every time there is a “security” related issue affecting US fur farms. The subject matter can range from trespassers being chased from farms, to unpublicized details of ALF raids, to farmers sharing license plate numbers of “suspicious vehicles.”These are intended to be read by fur farmers only, and were not intended to be read by the general public.
