During the early hours of August 5th, we visited Allison Blackwell, Senior Vice President of Beckman Coulter, at her lovely home in Yorba Linda (5715 Via Del Potrero, Yorba Linda, CA). Her and Beckman Coulter have been supplying HLS with the lab equipment used to test on animals for years. For this reason, her driveway, front door, porch and garage door were redecorated in red spray paint. The slogans “DROP HLS” and “PUPPY KILLER” was painted across her garage door. Red stain was thrown into her pool in the backyard turning the water and walls of the pool blood red, to remind her of the blood on her hands.

Allison, you know what to do to bring this to an end. Cut your losses and drop HLS. Until then expect to spend thousands more on damages because this is not a one time event.

As it reads across your drive way in red spray paint “THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING”   –ALF

[Press Office note: Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) has been exposed in seven consecutive undercover investigations demonstrating lab technicians simulating sex with animals, punching beagle puppies and violating numerous animal welfare regulations. The company kills 500 dogs and other animals every day testing such products as oven cleaners, pesticides and pharmaceuticals. Before losing their NYSE listing several years ago, HLS lost their listing on the London Stock Exchange after UK campaigners exposed atrocities occurring inside HLS facilities; the company currently teeters on the brink of bankruptcy. More information on the campaign to stop the atrocities at HLS, including additional targets worldwide, is available at www.shac.net

The Animal Liberation Front(ALF) utilizes economic sabotage in addition to the direct liberation of animals from conditions of abuse and imprisonment to halt needless animal suffering. By making it more expensive to trade in the lives of innocent, sentient beings, the ALF maintain the atrocities against our brothers and sisters are likely to occur in smaller numbers; their goal is to abolish the exploitation, imprisonment, torture and killing of innocent, non-human animals.]
