NY Yacht Club of New HLS Market Maker Executives Targeted by ALF; Carr Securities Stops Taking Orders for Stock Immediately
Port Washington, NY: In a communiqué received today, the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) took credit for an attack at the Manhasset Bay Yacht Club, where executives of the newest market maker for Huntingdon Life Sciences(HLS) are members. Carr Securities, scheduled to begin trading the stock (LSR) on Tuesday, quit taking orders almost immediately.
Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) has been exposed in five separate undercover investigations to openly abuse animals, killing 500 per day testing such products as oven cleaners and pesticides. HLS is a contract testing company with facilities in the United Kingdom and New Jersey. Its suppliers and customers have been under unrelenting attack by animal advocates for the last 3 years, driving them to near-bankruptcy.
The communiqué reads, in part:
“On Tuesday the 23rd, the Manhasset Bay Yacht Club was paid a visit from the ALF. Their nicely kept club area was completely covered with red paint and painted slogans. There was not a foot of the club that was left untouched. Let this be a message to any other company who chooses to court HLS in their 9/7/05 entrance into the NYSE . If you trade LSR*, make a market for LSR* process orders for LSR*, or purchase LSR* shares you can expect far worse treatment. The message is simple, DON’T TOUCH HLS!”
A spokesperson for Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) stated “HLS is currently making a bid to get its worthless stock back on the NY Stock Exchange, but they need at least four market makers to do so. When made aware of the atrocities committed by this company, most securities firms will have nothing to do with them. The ALF seems to be pursuading the others”.
