Agents investigates attack on fur store

Posted on by Marc Kaufman Furs NYC

These animal rights activists have gone too far in making a point about their feelings about furs. I find it so ironic that they are fighting for animal abuse (which isn’t even necessarily true) by abusing humans. I wouldn’t be surprised if these close-minded animal activists eat animal meat. This is how close-minded, ironic and hypocritical these people are. In Fox5 San Diego, you can find this article about this latest human rights abuse: 

Agents investigates attack on fur store

SAN DIEGO—Radical animal rights activists were taking responsibility for an attack on San Diego’s only furrier and now the FBI’s terrorism joint task force is investigating.

Furs by Graf owner Kimberley Graf said they have been targeted by animal rights activists several times over the past 30 years, but the most recent attack was the worst.

“Really I couldn’t believe it, it was unimaginable,” Graf said.

Last week, Graf received a call telling her the store had been vandalized. When she ran out to see the damage for herself, she realized her home had been targeted, too.

The attackers wrote “murder”  and “killer” in spray-paint, they glued the locks and threw acid.

“It’s horrible. You feel threatened. You feel intimidated,” Graf said. “It’s just terrifying that you can be violated in a personal way.”

Graf’s elderly parents were also victims.

The Animal Liberation Front later claimed responsibility for the attack and now the FBI, San Diego police and the San Diego Sheriff’s Department are investigating.

“This isn’t free speech we’re talking about. We’re talking about criminal acts that have been conducted,” FBI Special Agent Darrell Foxworth said.

Foxworth said these types of investigations aren’t easy.

Even if a group like the Animal Liberation Front claims responsibility, they don’t have a formal membership, which makes it hard to figure out who did it.

“There’s nothing wrong with individuals or groups peacefully using means to promote their social objectives or get their cause out,” Foxworth said.  “But you cross the line when you use threats of violence, actual violence or commit crimes against an individual or their property in furtherance of doing so.”

FOX 5 reached out to a representative for the Animal Liberation Front, but did not get a response.
