"On the night of May 21st four Vancouver fur stores were visited by the ALF. Capilano Furs, Speiser Furs, Snowflake Furs and Pappas Furs were covered in red paint to remind the public of the innocent blood spilled every day in the vicious fur trade. Eugene Klein, owner of Capilano Furs is dumb enough to run his fur business out of his home in North Vancouver so we also painted his $50,000 dodge truck and the brand new VW sitting in his driveway.

This action is dedicated to the hundreds of thousands of mink suffering and dying on the many filthy, polluted fur farms in the lower mainland.

To Megan Halprin of Snowflake Furs:

The sign outside of your house says 'The right to free speach does not include: harrassment, tresspassing and vandalism.' Well, the right to earn a fair living does not include torturing, abusing, and murdering others.

We didn't bother visiting your house because there is still evidence of a previous visit splattered all over your front door. It still looks great.

Right now the Seattle Fur Exchange/American Legend auction is taking place just across the border and tens of thousands of skins from Canadian wild and fur farmed individuals are being auctioned off to the highest bidding asshole. This sick event is one of the largest of its kind. We want the participants to know that every time you take a step forward, profiting off of violence, abuse and destruction of the natural world we will be right behind you, ripping and tearing at your heels. We WILL bring you down.

The new Fur Wars have just begun.

We will never stop UNTIL EVERY CAGE IS EMPTY.

ALF"
