Foxes freed in Finland
ALF Date: Mon, 19 Feb 2001 17:23:24 EST
The Animal Liberation Front (ALF) in Finland received the following communique from animal liberation freedom fighters:
Karri Konsti's fur farm, which is located in Taipalsaari (in south-east of Finland), was visited for the fourth time. The raid happened on February 10th.
All of the foxes (40 of them) were dyed with harmless 100% natural henna. All cages were cut open, so the foxes could come out.
There were six sheds. The cages in them were damaged in a way that the farmer could no longer keep animals in them. Destroying the cages was done to cause economic damage to the farmer, and to help him in his decision to stop fur farming.
Holes were cut to the bottom and the sides of the cages, and the hatches were cut off. Cages were made shapeless by twisting them, and some were pushed out of the sheds. Nearly all of the cages were destroyed.
The animals did not have breeding cards. There were slogans painted already on the walls (from the previous raids), so there was no need to paint more. The conditions for the animals were horrible. Most of the animals did not have water, or it was frozen in the metal drinking cups.
Hopefully Konsti would now realise, that he will not be left alone before he stops fur farming. The location of the farm is well known, and this raid will definitely not be the last one.
