Frontline: A.L.F. Rescue 28 Rabbits From California Lab (CA, USA)

A.L.F. Rescue 28 Rabbits From California Lab
- Liberation Marks End of Week of Protests -


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 30, 2001

Castroville, Calif. - The underground Animal Liberation Front has claimed responsibility for liberating 28 rabbits from a Castroville, CA vivisection lab. ICRC Company (950 Dolan Rd.) was targeted in the early morning ours of Sat. April 28 when the activists broke into the labs to make the daring rescue.

The raid comes at the end of WWAIL - World Week for Animals In Laboratories. While hundreds of animal rights activists protested and engaged in civil disobedience last week across the country at investiment bank Stephen's Inc. (major funders of the besieged vivisection company Huntington Life Sciences), the ALF operated under the cover of darkness to rescue the animals which are tortured in the name of science and commerce.

In a Communique released to the ALF Press Office, the activists described how they cut through a perimeter fence, avoided motion detector sensors, and broke into the facility while the caretakers were watching television in a building next door. They also state that the rabbits have now been placed "loving homes."

At this time the ALF Press Office is unclear of exactly what type of research is being conducted at ICRC Company, but spokesperson David Barbarash concurs with the ALF activists who state that these rabbits "live their lives in agony and (are) then murdered under the guise of 'science.'"

"Whether this lab is conducting toxicology experiments for chemicals and pesticides, or whether they are conducting medical or psychological research, experimenting on sentient animals is abhorrent and immoral," states Barbarash. "Torturing animals under any circumstances is simply no longer acceptable."

The Animal Liberation Front is an international underground movement of compassionate people who believe that animals must be set free from abusive conditions. Through tactics of rescue missions and property destruction the ALF carries out its campaigns anonymously and non-violently. In its 20-year history in North America there has never been any injuries or deaths resulting from their actions.

The full text of the ALF Communique follows:

"To celebrate World Week For Animals in Laboratories, The Animal Liberation Front is claiming responsibility for the liberation of 28 rabbits from ICRC Company (950 Dolan Rd., Castroville, CA) in the early morning hours of Saturday, April 28th, 2001.

Cutting through one fence and dodging motion-detecting lights we made our way to the outbuildings, where we witnessed rabbits confined in cramped cages barely able to move. Noticing that the undertakers of this abhorrent operation were still awake in their bedroom watching television, we quietly loaded as many rabbits as we could.

These gentle animals will be placed in loving homes and will never have to live their lives in agony and then murdered under the guise of "science." While these modern-day torture chambers continue to exist, our actions will only become more bold. We will not rest until these innocent creatures are no longer the victims of human viciousness, and while the vivisection industry continues to mutilate and torture millions of animals annually, when night falls, the laws supporting these death-camps mean nothing.
