By Peter on Dec 02, 2013 09:00 pm
The 8th in a series of leaked Fur Commission "security alerts" Animal Liberation
Frontline will be posting this month.
Background: Animal Liberation Frontline has obtained dozens of internal fur
industry "security alerts." These bulletins are sent to fur farmers via email
and fax every time there is a "security" related issue affecting US fur farms.
The subject matter can range from trespassers being chased from farms, to
unpublicized details of ALF raids, to farmers sharing license plate numbers of
These are intended to be read by fur farmers only, and were not intended to be
read by the general public. I will be posting approximately 30 bulletins over
the next month.

A synopsis of this alert
Fur farmers are put on alert after “animal rights extremists” are expected to
attend a public hearing in Astoria, Oregon.
"FCUSA Security Alert
November 29, 2011
Public Hearing on Mink Farm Permit this Thursday
The Portland Animal Defense League solicited enough comments to the Oregon
Department of Agriculture (ODA) to trigger a public hearing on the proposal to
issue a Confined Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) permit to the Stunkard Fur Farm
The hearing will be in the meeting room of the Judge Guy Boyington Building
located at 857 Commercial Street, Astoria, OR, 97103 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM on
December 1, 2011.
Though we have been assured that the ODA will only be considering comments on
the management of manure, litter, and process waste water, the event will surely
attract a substantial number of animal rights extremists, so farmers in NW
Oregon should be alert to any suspicious activity in their area.
Please record license numbers of unknown vehicles and descriptions of persons
near your farm, and report them to Fur Commission USA and the Clatsop County
Sheriffs Dept. Check your security precautions and inform your neighbors
to be aware of any unusual activity.
