Leaked Security Alert #10: “Suspicious” persons scouting Utah fur farm

The 10th in a series of leaked Fur Commission “security alerts” Animal Liberation Frontline will be posting this 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

This is a typical Fur Commission security alert, warning fur farmers of “suspicious” persons seen near a Utah fur farm. With over 100 fur farm raids since 1995, farmers consider any activity around their farm suspicious, and report this activity to the Fur Commission as part of their “Neighborhood Watch” program which is subsequently distributed nationwide via these alerts.

Suspicious Persons Seen Scouting Utah Farm

Last night around 6:00 p.m., a [car make and model redacted], with [state redacted] plates, was spotted outside a Morgan County mink ranch. Two persons were standing with the vehicle, possibly taking pictures.  One was a [description redacted] years old, with [description redacted]. The second was a [description redacted]. When approached by farm employees they fled.  Morgan County Sheriffs have identified the vehicle as a rental car.

In light of recent attacks in Oregon and Idaho, and the presence of activists congregating to protest the Ringling Bros. Circus in SLC, please take the time to update your phone tree, check your security, and inform your friends and neighbors to be aware of unknown persons in the area.  Farmers and other related resource providers are strongly urged to pay special attention to their surroundings over the next few weeks, and report any suspicious vehicles, persons or activities to law enforcement and Fur Commission USA.
