A synopsis of this alert
The Fur Commission commits more fear mongering by "alerting" farmers to a benign
protest occurring at a slaughterhouse outside of Salt Lake City, scheduled after
ag-gag charges were dropped against an activists arrested for filming there.
This slaughterhouse is very close to (and on the same street as) the Dixon mink
farm, also in Draper / Bluffdale.

May 16, 2013
Recently, criminal charges were dropped against a well-known Utah animal rights
activist, Amy Meyer, for violating Utah’s Farm Protection Act (making illicit
video of farm practices). In support of her there is a protest, "200 Cameras,
200 Activists", scheduled for Saturday, May 18th at 2:00 PM. Reports indicate
that the protest will be held at the Smith & Sons Meatpacking plant (12450 S.
Pony Express Road in Draper, Utah). The participants are meeting to carpool from
the South Jordan Walmart parking lot at 1:30 PM.
Fur Commission urges all mink ranchers in the area to be on alert this weekend
for any suspicious activity near their facility, and to alert local law
enforcement agents of the potential for actions targeting your property.
Any additional information discovered will be broadcast as it becomes available.
