"06.01.2008, Highgate Rabbit Farm, Highgate, Normanby-by-Spital, Lincolnshire, UK.
During the midnight hours of 6th January 2008, A.L.F volunteers gained entry to a rabbit breeder who provides animals to suffer and die in the miserable vivisection industry. Customers of this breeder include HLS and several UK Universities.
A ventilation fan was forcibly removed to evade the alarm systems on the doors. Inside rabbits were lined in barren cages breathing in the stench of shit and urea, waiting to be tortured to death in animal testing labs. But tonight, the activists had a more compassionate fate for them. A total of 129 rabbits were loaded in friendship groups into bags and taken immediately to safety. Never will they have to know or experience an experimental facility or university lab. Some of the rabbits were visibly excited when they reached their new lives, playing in the straw and eating carrots happily.
We couldn't leave without saying a proper good bye! On site we found a quad bike with trailer plus a lawnmower. All tyres were popped, locks glued, expanding foam in the exhaust, and were paintstripped. Next, we found a large white van obviously used as part of the sickening business. We redecorated it with nice new paint work, paintstripper, glued locks, popped tyres, and expanding foam up the exhaust. We also found a rather posh sports car parked outside the house which also had a little makeover just like the van.

ALF VISIT HLS SUPPLIER & CUSTOMER EXECS
"Ian Howells, BMS [Bristol Myers Squibb] director had 'PUPPY KILLER', 'ALF' and 'SCUM' written in red paint on his three white garage doors.
Ian John Howells
Give Ian a ring on [removed] , apparently his wife Penelope likes dirty phone calls. If not maybe Jonathan and Richard can convince Ian to make the right choice.
Phenoenex Company Secretary Mary Leech also got a visit. 'LEECH KILLS PUPPIES' and 'ALF' was painted in black on the end of her house, on clear view to all of her neighbours. This house was easy to find, as it was the only one with a huge CCTV camera. You might want to start watching that Leech.[Removed] is Leech's number.
Mary Theresa Leech
For the animals - always. ALF"
