Animal Liberation Front in Canadian arson

The Animal Liberation Front has claimed responsibility for setting fire to two trucks in West Mississauga on June 7th 2015. The trucks were owned by the animal research facility supplier, Harlan Laboratories. The fire is being treated as suspicious by local police.

In a communique delivered through the North American Animal Liberation Front Press Office (NAALPO)

"Mississauga, Ontario, Canada - Early in the morning of June 7, 2015, the Animal Liberation Front planted incendiary devices under trucks belonging to Harlan Laboratories. Harlan is a company owned by Huntingdon Life Sciences. They are responsible for supplying research animals and animal feed to vivisectionists. This action was undertaken in order to eliminate this evil company's means of transportation, to disrupt the systematic torture and murder of innocent animals, and to cause as much monetary damage as possible. Fortunately, news reports have said that the devices ignited successfully, damaging one truck and completely destroying the other. Our only regret is that the flames were extinguished before they had a chance to spread to Harlan's offices. In solidarity with those fighting the oppression of mink on fur farms in St. Mary's - A.L.F."

Earlier that week, 1,600 mink had been released from a mink farm in St. Mary’s, Ontatio.
