UCLA Vivisector Lynn Fairbanks Targeted by ALF

July 12, 2006

Los Angeles: In a communiqué received today by NAALPO, the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) took credit for an attack at the home of UCLA primate vivisector Lynn Fairbanks. An incendiary device was reportedly left on her porch, although it was not confirmed that the device was activated.

Fairbanks is notorious at UCLA for keeping hundreds of Vervet monkeys in cages, purportedly to study psychological, psychiatric and social problems such as Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, substance abuse, criminality and violence. Translating her study results into human terms has, of course, remained problematic over the years, as she has killed thousands of her subjects.

The communiqué reads:
"On the night of June 30, we paid a visit to Lynn Fairbanks home at 2438 Roscomare Road in Belaire. Since she is rumored to have a cocktail every evening after a hard days work of breeding monkeys for painful addiction experiments at UCLA we thought we would give her a cocktail of our own a Molotov cocktail. We left it on her doorstep but didn't hang around to see if it went off.

Lynn Fairbanks and those like her who make money off of addicting primates to drugs like ecstasy and cocaine or who keep primates locked up in cages and taken out of their cages only to be experimented on by sadistic monkey killers need to stop.

If the primates could escape from there cages they would do this to Lynn Fairbanks and worse. Since they cant we did. ALF."

A spokesperson for The Primate Freedom Project, Rick Bogle, stated, "Even without considering the highly artificial caged environment and the stress of being handled and undergoing multiple operations to implant medical devices, non-human primates' neurochemistry is simply not a homologue of human neurochemistry. Neurochemistry and mental function are incredibly complex. Fairbanks is never going to discover anything applicable to human health, mental or otherwise. She is riding a gravy train to personal gain, nothing else, and I hope the ALF stops her in her tracks."
