September 21, 2005 - UK HLS SUPPLIER'S QUARRY DESTROYED Received anonymously by activists in the UK: Thursday 15th September must have been a miserable day for Dickerson Ltd. (who through their sister company Donarbon remove the waste from HLS), not only did it rain all day, but the night before their limestone quarry at Greetham in Rutland had been hit hard by an ALF cell. The night was so still and quiet, that noise had to be kept to a minimum to prevent neighbouring houses becoming suspicious. Even so, with the moon illuminating the site we managed to deflate tyres on digging vehicles by destroying air valves, cut a large amount of wiring on JCBs and two large multi-part conveyer belts, sever many hydraulic lines, remove all start-up keys from various ignition points on the conveyer belts and paint slogans inside a storage shed and workers rest area. Finally we smashed our way through 2 locked doors to gain access to the site office which was ransacked, more wires were cut, office equipment damaged, paper work strewn over the floor and covered with water and the manager's new glasses and shoes cut up. Dickerson Ltd./Donarbon, maybe it's best to get away from HLS whilst you still have some quarries in working order, after all look at what the ALF did to those belonging to RMC when they collaborated with animal abuse.

September 18, 2005 - New Zealand FIVE HENS RESCUED DURING PROTEST Reported by activists in Wellington: "Five hens were rescued during a protest at the Kapiti Poultry Farm on Saturday 10th of September. As about fifteen activists arrived for a protest at the battery hen farm, several people discovered a shed door was open and entered the building. Conditions inside the shed were some of the worst ever witnessed by the activists - dead hens lay throughout the building and in cages, the air was thick with feather dust, cages were so crowded that hens were trapped beneath other hens. Many of the hens were severely debeaked, and their beaks were split.
Five hens were rescued and the protest was called off so the hens could be taken to a safe home."

September 16, 2005 - Canada TRAVEL OFFICE RANSACKED TO PROTEST PRIMATE TRADE Received anonymously by activists in Canada: "For the international week-end of actions against the Mauritius monkey trade a group of activists decided to hit hard Thomas Cook who still refuse to make the ethical move to boycott the mauritius island until they stop the monkey trade. I guess that means they are ready to face this and a lot more.
On Friday afternoon we arrived at this Marlin/Thomas Cook travel agency in montreal very angry and masked. We barged into the office kicking and throwing everything in our way. We ran all over the office screaming and threatening the only worker there who was in total shock. The filing cabinets where totally destroyed, thrown on the ground and the files where flying all over the place.
We left the place looking like a total mess but we are still very angry … this was our first visit to Thomas Cook and we were pretty easy on them, next time you won't be counting the damage cost by the hundreds but by the thousands of dollars… you won't be so lucky if you continue pumping the economy of this
murderous island. DROP MAURITIUS NOW!"
Thomas Cook is the main dealer in holidays to Mauritius (one of the biggest exporters of primates for vivisection). More information at: www.GatewaytoHell.net

On the night to september 9th we gained entry to a rabbit farm in Valdemarsvik (Sweden) that breeds rabbit for slaughter.
Inside the house there was 50 rabbits in what looked like old mink cages. Some of the cages was on the floor and difficault to open beacuse of the dirt.
In the cages there was lonely and shy rabbits that we felt we had to help. We emptied the farm of all the rabbits and placed them where they can now live a worhty life, a life all animals deserve.
We want to thank all people that during the 20 years the DBF has been in existence in Sweden has taken part of it. It is from these people we found the inspiration to take the law in our own hand ourselves to save life.

Inne i huset satt ett 50-tal kaniner i vad som såg ut att vara gamla minkburar. En del burar låg ner på golvet och var speciellt svåra att få upp på grund av mängder av smuts och rost.
I burarna satt ensama och skygga kaniner som vi kände att vi var tvugna att hjälpa. Därför tömde vi farmen på alla dess kaniner och placerade ut dem där de nu kan leva ett värdigt liv, ett liv som alla djur förtjänar.
Vi vill tacka alla människor som under de här 20 åren som DBF funnits i Sverige varit en del av DBF. Det är från dessa människor vi funnit inspiration till att även själva ta lagen i egna händer för att rädda liv.

Each day in the world an incalculable number of animals are exploited, tortured and massacred, for fashion, experimentation, entertainment or for meat. This is why the Animal Liberation Front (F.L.A.) exists. The liberation of animals is without borders, in Russia or Great Britain animals are released and laboratories destroyed.
Acts of sabotage occurred at Copovi because hundreds of hens are suffering in this place while waiting to be transported under atrocious conditions to be killed.
Determined for the release of all animals.

September 9, 2005 - Russia RACCOON LIBERATED Received anonymously by the Russian ALF SG:
"Few years ago prison called "Exotic World" was opened close to the main
road of city Sochi (South of Russia, the Black Sea shore) near the park
"Dendrarium" entrance. There were birds, reptiles and other animals. Happy
raccoon was chosen as the symbol of this jail, but it was not fun at all
for real raccoon, who stayed in cage under advertising board. At day time,
when visitors come he has to stay in open place, feeling stress from big
amount of people and heavy traffic. Raccoons in nature are night animals,
but here in night he had to stay in tiny barrel, where he can't move and
had no food and water.
On the 30th of August, jumped over the fence we came inside of the prison.
The lock on the cage was destroyed, we took raccoon from the barrel and
leave this ugly place. When we were caring him, he was paying attention
especially to the sound of rivers and streams. He was smelling by his
sensitive nose all smells which came by wind.
Few hours later we designated the right place. Raccoon eat with appetite
together with us, drunk water and wash his small hands. It was too hot
during the journey and raccoon looked powerless. He entered water of the
river and began to swim. Then he walked on the grass and had rest there.
Very quickly his stage became better. Liberated he started his walk along
the river to find proper place for his own home.
Those people, who make money torturing and killing such beings, as this
raccoon, should release, that this action is not the last one. If they
don't stop their cruel business, they will face with us in future. -
Animal Liberation Front"
