Leaked security alert #1: Aspiring fur farmer outed, more

The first in a series of leaked Fur Commission “security alerts” Animal Liberation Frontline will be posting over the next month.

Background: 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. I will be posting approximately 30 bulletins over the next month.

Read a full background on this series here.

A synopsis of this alert

The first bulletin in this series covers what is apparently an aspiring fur farmer looking to purchase breeding stock. Her inquiries with Utah mink farmers made them uneasy, and prompted this alert. If this woman successfully opened a mink farm, its address is not yet known.

The second portion covers a suspicious vehicle seen near a Hyrum, Utah mink farm.

“Fur Commission USA
Security Alert – Utah
May 8, 2012

A young woman from Mt. Pleasant UT named Amy Lamb has called several mink ranches asking to buy breeding stock. The number she is calling from is 435-851-3538 and is registered in Manti, UT. After speaking with her and doing some research, I believe she is legitimate, though naive about our industry. She is 21 years old and the daughter of Art and Molly Lamb of Mt. Pleasant. She has experience in raising sheep and cattle, and has been involved in the Mt. Pleasant Rodeo.

If you receive a call from her, please ask that she get in touch with Fur Commission for more information on mink farming.  I have asked her to please stop calling ranches.

At approximately 11:30 PM on April 23rd, a [car description redacted] with [license plate redacted] was seen outside a mink ranch near Hyrum UT. If you see this vehicle near your property please call your local law enforcement agency and Fur Commission USA.
