The sad thing about these thieves (apart from their mental state) is that their criminal activities probably turn some people off legitimate animal welfare organisations.
Late last night (12/01/07) the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) broke into a battery farm in South Auckland and liberated 25 battery hens from a life of cruelty and suffering.
In the communique received by Auckland Animal Action (AAA) from the ALF, the activists referred to a similar action which occurred at the Logan Road farm in 2004.
Spokesperson for AAA Rochelle Rees says;
“We are extremely pleased about this liberation as 25 hens will now lead happy, healthy lives outdoors in natural conditions. They will be able to walk, enjoy the sun and socialize with each other instead of being cramped together in tiny cages in a dark shed.”
“We especially applaud and encourage such courageous actions as this one, as the government have proven they are incapable of acting to end the suffering. By failing to abolish battery farming, the government has recklessly neglected these animals and condemned them to a lifetime of distress and suffering”
These people are not hard to track down. When are the police going to act against their blatant criminal activity?
Just off down to KFC for lunch.
