Boy, Some Heads Will Roll!

Someone in ALF got a bad stain on her resume in Scotland recently.

A deer farm in north-east Fife was targeted by the extremist Animal Liberation Front. Fences were cut in four fields and graffiti including “Scum” was spray-painted on the ground.

However, none of the 50 to 60 red deer tried to escape.

The farm is free-range and Nichola Fletcher, who owns it with her husband John, said the wrong people were targeted. “These people have made up their minds without coming to find out about us. I would love to invite them for a cup of tea and explain to them what we are trying to do here, " she said.

The owners’ daughter Stella described the sleuthing which lead to the suspicion of the ALF. “We think it’s the Animal Liberation Front because they scrawled ALF over everything. They wrote ‘Scum’ on the roadways and ‘This is a wildlife prison.’ They’ve cut the fencing and written all over our sign.”

The ALF did not phone in to take credit for this action. ALF is preparing a statement about how hard it is to get good help these days.

The Animal Liberation Front is said to operate in small cells which take direct action—including damage to property—where activists perceive animals are abused. It targeted Oxford University because of a research laboratory being built to house animals to be used in testing.

Presumably, testing other than midterms.
