ALF Report

For Immediate Release:

Sabotage Done In Protest of Primates Being Sold to Notorious Animal Testing
Lab HLS.

(Philadelphia) The Animal Liberation Front (ALF) has claimed responsibility
for hacking into the web site of the company that supplies the primates used
in the product testing research at the notorious animal testing laboratory
Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS). Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC), an
international pressure group campaigning to close done the scandalous
laboratory HLS, received an anonymous communiqué announcing the Ohactitivst¹

The communiqué states the ALF penetrated the server of the Primate Products
and completely changed the content of the web page allowing the viewer to
read about the horrific suffering that the primates sold to HLS endure. The
³improved² website contains several graphic photos of primates butchered in
research laboratories and even contains photos of actual primates from
inside HLS that were taken during undercover investigations.

According to the communiqué and website ³This is the first of what will
hopefully be a long series of electronic attacks on networked computers
owned by HLS or their customers/investorsS Break all contact with HLS or you
will be financially destroyed. There is no room for compromise while 500
animals are tortured to death every day.²

HLS, based in the UK with two labs and an additional lab located in East
Millstone NJ, is one of the world¹s biggest animal testing labs. HLS tests
agrochemical and pharmaceutical products on puppies, cats, monkeys, rabbits,
and a number of other animals killing roughly 180,000 a year. Activists
internationally have committed themselves to shutting down HLS after 5
undercover investigations have shown workers punching beagle puppies in the
face, dissecting a live monkey, transplanting a frozen pig¹s heart into a
baboon, falsifying scientific data, and violating procedures for animal

According to the SHAC spokesperson, ³SHAC is a legal campaign and the ALF¹s
internet contribution was unsolicited, but enthusiastically welcomed. HLS
has been warned for the 500 animals they murder everyday there is 500
different strategies the animal rights movement will use to shut them down.
I expect to see more creative and hard-hitting tactics like this in the

Communiqué Received:
³I thought you might all be interested to know that I have just penetrated
the web server of Primate Products Inc who
as you probably know supply HLS with equipment such as restraining devices.
I have made a few improvements to their web site. This is the first of what
will hopefully be a long series of electronic attacks on networked computers
owned by HLS or their customers/investors. This is an element of the
campaign, which is long overdue.²
