In response to the Seattle Fur Exchange:
At this moment in Seattle people are gathering in a grotesque celebration of the barbaric fur trade. They are selling untold numbers of skins from innocent animals in the name of their meaningless god, money. In response to these killers we returned to Vancouver to visit another house of horrors, the Glass House at 1425 Clyde Avenue in West Vancouver. The Glass House is owned by notorious animal abuser Jody Claman. Jody Claman supports and promotes the abuse, torture and murder of tens of thousands of innocent furry animals on her stupid tv show real housewives of vancouver. She has a reputation for wearing dozens of dead animals in the form of her grotesque full fur coats. She prances around through her useless, meaningless life looking like a psychotic bastard child of cruella deville and barbie. Her store sells both fur and feathers. No doubt she is unaware that these feathers are ripped from the birds as they are still alive, or boiled off of them in scalding tanks.
Jody, you lied to the media saying your vile fur is second hand, but we know that you are lying to hide your embarrassment for your violent habits. You are also lying on your website saying you sell raccoon fur that you are either too stupid to know is dog fur or you just like lying about it.
During the night of March 21 we descended upon Vancouver to visit her horrid store. We squirted foul liquid in the door to destroy anything it touched. We also reminded the Glass House that they are under surveillance by signing our name ALF in large painted letters. We splashed the remaining paint on the front of the store to warn your community about what you do to innocent animals every single day in the name of your obscene ‘fashion sense.’
If we ever find fur in your store again or on your stupid show we’ll see you at home next time.
It’s time to realize that you are not the only person on Earth. Every single day millions and millions of mink, foxes, dogs, rabbits, and other animals are trapped in cages, pacing back and forth from boredom and terror. They see their family members dumped unceremoniously into gas chambers and gassed to death. The chambers’ walls gouged with the claw marks of the condemned desperate to escape, though no escape is possible. The foxes have rods put in their genitals and are electrocuted, causing their tiny eyes to bulge out as the life drains from them. The thousands of dogs whose carcasses are in Jody’s store had their skulls bashed in so that she could feel special, wearing their bodies around like a scarf.
Get it through your head, if you continue killing them, you will continue hearing from us.
For the animals, who are unable to save themselves,
Animal Liberation Front
[Press Office note: Imprisoned in cages for life, or mercilessly trapped with painful leghold traps in the wild, fur-bearing animals killed to make unnecessary fashion statements are forced to endure intensive confinement, compared to the miles of territory these still-wild animals would enjoy in their natural state. The natural instincts of these captive animals are completely frustrated; self-mutilation, sickness, infection, poor sanitation and the sheer stress of confinement lead animals in captivity to premature death. When they survive, animals of sufficient size are killed by anal electrocution or gassing, then skinned. In addition to liberating the wild animals destined for a certain, painful and agonizing death, another goal of liberationists is to cause economic damage to fur retailers and farms; dozens of stores and fur farming operations have seen economic ruin since “Operation Bite Back” began by the Animal Liberation Front in the 1990s.
The Animal Liberation Front 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.]
