before Thanksgiving, the Animal Rights Militia liberates 20 turkeys in Vermont
a year that saw few liberations of domesticated animals, the Animal Rights
Militia liberated 20 turkeys from a roadside pen in Vermont. The liberation
came just hours before the turkeys were to be killed.
on a mobile slaughter vehicle were also slashed.
full communique received by the Animal Liberation Press Office reads:
the early morning hours of November 14th, members of VT ARM liberated 20
turkeys that had been cruelly forced into a small pen without shelter. The
pen had been set up along side a road as a marketing ploy. The decision
to liberate the turkeys was made after it was learned that they were to
be murdered that morning. It took the extraction team less than 5 minutes
to breach the fence and liberate the turkeys. As a parting gift members
of ARM slashed the tires of the mobile slaughter house, which had been parked
less then 20 meters away, while the drive sat in the front seat smoking.
Uncle Sam spent thousands training us to be the best and now those who think
they can profit off the suffering of animals will learn that we are. We
will use whatever means necessary to liberate animals, prevent cruelty and
punish those who commit acts of cruelty. To the Bushway criminals, Happy
