Animal Rights Terrorists Strike Again

Just heard the news at Neurotopia: Animal Rights Extremists firebomb researcher’s car. The Animal Liberation Front (ALF) claimed responsibility.

Listen folks, domestic terrorists belong in jail. For a long time. And given the support that PETA has shown such terrorists over the years and the role of PETA in the animal rights movement, I can’t help but say that the vast majority of animal rights activists appear to support domestic terrorism. But hey, here’s to hoping that some of these activists will have a conscience and speak out against such tactics.

In the meantime, some other blogs talking about this story:
Neurotopia, Adventures in Ethics and Science I and II
The Problem with Primate Research

And for my own previous postings on Animal Rights extremism, please see these at Bitesize Bio (most recent to oldest):
