It took a flashlight and some careful tiptoeing
along a dark trail behind an Orinda home to reach
Lady Dee, a seven-month-old turkey hiding in a
makeshift coop. Lady Dee was only visiting on a
layover last week. In July
, a group of
“animal rescuers” snuck onto a Central Valley turkey
and plucked her from the barn. She was one of
seven turkeys smuggled off the land that night,
saved from her sure destiny with slaughter. In a few
days, she would be moved to her new home in the

12 Ducklings Liberated
from Factory Farm
Each year, approximately 24 million ducks are
killed for food. Most are warehoused in large sheds with nothing but sawdust
reeking of ammonia, a bit of food, and 'nipple drinkers' as their only source of
water. They live in these conditions until 7 weeks of age when they are
In the early morning hours of February 27, 2005, we liberated
12 ducklings from 29755 W. Jefferson Avenue, Tranquillity, CA 93668, a farm
owned by Woodland Farms, a subsidiary of Maple Leaf Farms. Maple Leaf Farms, the
largest producer of duck meat in North America, murders over 14 million ducks
Over 120 dead, decomposing bodies were found

Animal Liberation Victoria's (ALV)
June 24, 2000 Beaumont CA. With
the June 24th premier of Hollywood's new film "Chicken Run", the Animal
Liberation Front (A.L.F.) exposed the truth behind egg farms. The A.L.F. is
claiming responsibility for the liberation of 613 chickens from Sunny-Cal Eggs
in Beaumont, CA (east of L.A.).
As audiences watched "Chicken Run"
for the first time, the A.L.F. took action by breaking into sheds at this modern
day concentration camp. We obtained video documentation of the horrendous and
inhumane conditions inside this factory farm.
Billions of real live chickens
suffer immensely on real battery egg farms every day. Just like those in the
movie, each and every one of these chickens has her own personality, the
capacity to suffer and a desire to live. And just like the characters in the
movie, the owners of such animal concentration camps care about nothing more
than profits. To maximize production and profits, 4-6 birds are crammed into
cages barely larger than half a sheet of newspaper.
All 613 chickens were placed in
homes and will never spend another day in a cage. These birds will never have to
live and endure the endless torture and misery placed upon them by this cruel
industry. They will never have their beaks cut from their bodies with a hot
blade. They will never be killed simply because they can no longer produce eggs
for human consumption.
With vegan dog treats and
manipulation of gates, we fenced off guard dogs, cut through 5 perimeter fences
and entered massive compound where we carefully loaded the chickens into
carriers and delivered them to safety. Until human beings learn to take
responsibility for this earth and all her creatures, it will remain necessary
for compassionate individuals to act outside the law on behalf of the innocent.
On Friday 16 April, 2003 the Animal Liberation Front raided a factory farm
operated by John Parkers Farms Ltd (Wallops Wood Farm, Droxford, Southampton,
SO32 3QY) and liberated over 1,000 battery hens. Through the night of Good
Friday 16 Animal Liberation Front volunteers executed a highly organised plan
and raided a factory farm operated by John Parkers Farms Ltd (Wallops Wood Farm,
Droxford, Southampton, SO32 3QY) and liberating over 1,000 battery hens using
two large horse boxes, vehicles which were donated to us by an ex-animal farmer
who is wracked with guilt for the way he has behaved towards other animals for
much of his life.
During the raid we also caused extensive damage to much of the caging system by
cutting up many of the cages and their doors. We smashed thousands of eggs,
trashed conveyor belts, feeding apparatus and electrical equipment and left our
feelings in paint all around the place. We wrecked food stores, staff toilets,
canteen, we trased rearing sheds and a delivery truck and took from the office
all the information we need to further our campaign. We were undisturbed
throughout and had an awkwardly pleasurable time amidst the tangible torment
Following a tip off we first took a look at this breathtaking example of how to
do a bad thing badly, at Upper Grenville Copse Wood near Droxford on the B2150
in Hampshire, some weeks ago and found ourselves in what can only be described
as hell for the tens of thousands of young birds held captive there. A huge egg
production factory imprisoning many, many thousands of hens in three vast
factory units, hidden from view in remote woodland and
lost in time. This is the real face of British animal farming, promoted as `food
you can trust' and `fresh farm eggs' but in reality produced in secret in filthy
conditions and cruel beyond description.
Every day during this period of surveillance reinforced what is at first glance
inside the doors of any of these windowless buildings blindingly obvious. There
are no adequate checks and balances, no rules, regulations or criteria to keep
animal farms such as this in line with what decent, compassionate civilized
human beings could call acceptable practice. This place has NEVER been inspected
by those who defend such cruelty.
Every day we have had to break the law and risk imprisonment and our health to
prevent the most unbelievable suffering from being deliberately inflicted on
fragile creatures whose enforced contribution to the greed of human beings isn't
even rewarded with basic levels of compassion and care. No government body or
industry apologist will dare defend this vile practice. It will probably be
excused as exceptional but we have a catalogue of similar examples of deliberate
cruelty and neglect, some connected to the same farmer, which neither the RSPCA,
the NFU or DEFRA - all profiteers from animal farming - is interested in.
Here is the turning point. We have done their work for them once again. This
time we have acted before the official `tidy up' or security lock down can begin
and have made things right the only way that is acceptable, by removing victims
of this barbaric business to safety. If our efforts prove fruitless for the many
thousands of birds that remain and others replace them in the cages our response
will be more extreme than the situation itself, and final.
We have walked away from this farm over recent weeks with dozens of hens who
have already spent their brief, young, fertile lives crammed into tiny wire
cages before escaping the violent efforts of farm workers to load them for the
final solution to their failing productivity that long awful journey to the
The `lucky' birds that have avoided the cage round up have ended up in the deep
shit pit below the five tiered cages of this great British farm and have had to
survive amongst years of festering waste, rotten eggs, dead and dying birds and
hundreds and hundreds of rats. Where they fight to survive until they themselves
slowly rot away from lack of water or food, and the rats move in. So encased in
weeks of accumulated waste, it has taken carers hours of gentle persuasion with
hammers, drills and saws to remove the leg irons from these little birds and
free them to walk again.
None of these birds are ever recovered by the owners of this farm, as was
obvious from our observations and the countless corpses in various stages of
decomposition that fill this pit. Even in the cramped cages birds are tormented
further by rats and mice seeking food, down below there is no water and
survivors must compete with these opportunistic rodents for what food can be
found in and amongst the fallen waste.
As can be seen from video footage, birds that become immobilised with the waste
that sticks to their legs aren't then even able to forage for scraps of food.
These slowly sink into the sodden waste and die horribly where they lay, only
able to resist hungry rats and other hens as long as they are able to stay
alive. The most terrible choice imaginable.
Having rescued the weakest and most badly injured birds and accumulated all the
evidence we need to prove the cruelty, but still painfully aware the authorities
would wash over the horrors here as has happened all too often in the profitable
world of animal abuse, we set in motion the second phase of our intention to
close in the violent world of the bullies and butchers running Britain's animal
farms and those aligned with them in search of profits from animals and their
We will force the end of this great British farm if the authorities fail to do
so. And it won't be pretty.
