Leaked security alert #17: Farmers warned of raids after talk by “extremist” felon

The 17th in a series of leaked Fur Commission “security alerts” Animal Liberation Frontline is 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 one speaks for itself: An alert warning fur farmers of a talk I gave at the University of Wisconsin in 2011.

While I am flattered the Fur Commission believes “activists tend to be energized after (my) appearance,” I am unaware of any evidence for this, nor of any Animal Liberation Front activity that has directly proceeded any talk I’ve given. Therefore this is among the more pointlessly alarmist security alerts of the collection.

Peter Young Speaking in Milwaukee

Convicted felon and anti-fur extremist is bringing his message of crime and violence to the U. of WI-Milwaukee tonight.  Farmers and other resource providers are encouraged to be aware of any suspicious activity around their farms in the coming days, as activists tend to be energized after his appearance. University police have been informed and will be monitoring the event.
