Leaked security alert #12: ALF raids fox farm during animal rights conference

The 12th 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.

Synopsis of this alert

This alert was sent out following the only fur farm raid of 2012: the release of 13 foxes from a farm in Elkton, Virginia. Here the Fur Commission attempts to link the raid to the Animal Rights 2012 Conference taking place elsewhere in Virginia at the time.

Security Alert OH, PA, IN, IL
August 6, 2012

Early yesterday morning animal rights extremists broke into D&S Fox Farm near Elkton Virginia, and released all 13 silver foxes on the farm. They also claim to have destroyed farm equipment during the raid.

At the time, the National Animal Rights Convention in Alexandria VA was coming to a close, where known “liberationist” and convicted felon Peter Young, among others, were speaking. Young, naive activists likely were incited at the conference to commit crimes against family farms.

On July 16, Coalition Against Fur Farms listed the address and owner of D&S Fox Farm as a “new discovery” on their website. It is generally agreed that the website is owned by [name redacted].

The attackers may be heading west on the road home from the Conference, so resource providers in OH, IN, IL and possibly Southern PA are urged to be on high alert over the next few days. Please report any unknown vehicles or persons near your facility to Fur Commission USA and your local law enforcement agency.
