Communiqué from unknown activists<br><br>
Date: September 19, 2006<br><br>
Institution targeted: Capralogics<br><br>
Communique:<br><br><br><br>
In honor of the SHAC-7, 23 rabbits have been liberated from Capralogics, a vivisection lab in rural Massachusettes. Jake, Lauren, Kevin, Andy, Josh, and Darius, as well as their 17 other lop-eared friends who have yet to be named, are all safe from the hands of those who had imprisoned and tortured them in the name of profit.<br><br><br><br>
Capralogics is a small company that does contract testing on rabbits and goats in both the U.S. and the U.K. Some of the photos submitted with this communique, taken by a Capralogics employee in the U.S., show the way rabbits are treated by this terrible company - their bodies restrained in headlocks, their skin shaved off so they could be injected with various compounds. When their experiment concludes they are terminally bled, meaning they are cut and left to bleed until their life has drained away.<br><br><br><br>
Of course, once we found about this we could not let it continue without trying to rescue some of the animals. So in the middle of a warm, foggy night, we hopped the cheap fencing around Capralogics' property and entered one of their four rabbit housing sheds. There were no locks to pick, no windows to pry open, no doors to bust down - the sheds are open structures and we simply had to step over a gate to enter them. One by one we went down the rows of small cages, each containing a rabbit which had most likely never felt the sun on its fur or the grass beneath its paws. Every cage in the shed was opened and we took as many rabbits as we could, 23 total.Several other rabbits were let loose into the surrounding field. With luck they will live their last days in freedom, but even if they get caught or killed as least they have had one decent night in their otherwise tortured lives.<br><br><br><br>
Quickly our 23 new friends were hurried to our waiting vehicle and off we went into the night, laughing thinking about the faces on those bastards when they walked into their rabbit shed the next morning. Finally free, the rabbits quickly made friends with one another and quickly made themselves at home. The endless anger we feel towards those who torture these creatures was replaced with the immediate joy of seeing them free, happy, and on their way to a new life. We would like to point out how easy this action was - it didn't take any particular skill, just a little planning and a little committment.There are thousands of labs and farms across this country, many in isolated rural areas like this one, and most can be found online or in public directories - what's stopping you?<br><br><br><br>
This liberation is dedicated to the SHAC-7 and was done in direct response to the government's assault on them. Not a single member of the judge, jury and prosecution have the compassion, the conviction, or the courage of any of those six individuals, and they never will. In this sick culture, we know that every day the sick, the stupid, and the evil bully and destroy those who are far their better. Every lab, farm and fur animal, every poisoned wild bird, every beaten child, every raped woman knows this. The case of the SHAC-7 is no different.<br><br><br><br>
But we will fight back for them. Animal liberation is an idea whose time has come and a reality that any of us can create. The government and the industries it represents hate us so much because no matter who they surveil, raid, defame or imprison, they cannot kill the idea and so they cannot stop us. And while the SHAC-7 will soon go to jail for simply speaking out on behalf of animals, those of us who have done all the nasty stuff talked about in the courts and in the media will still be free. So to those who still work with HLS and to all who abuse animals: we're coming for you, mother****ers.<br><br><br><br>
Until all are free, the night belongs to us...<br><br><br><br>

Look, it sounds like fun, liberating a bunch of rabbits. But Capralogics will probably now want to buy 23 rabbits to replace those that they lost. So instead of 23 rabbits being mutliated, 46 rabbits will be mutilated.<br><br><br><br>
This is not going to hurt them financial. Rabbits are a dime a dozen. They probably will spend more on company pens to replace those that were pilfered by their employees, than they will spend on replacing the rabbits.

THREE CHEERS FOR THE UNNAMED ACTIVISTS!!!!!!!<br><br><br><br>
They are heros.<br><br><br><br>
Soilman: I don't think you understand the purpose behind freeing these animals. It is not only an act of compassion, love and bravery, but it is also a tremendous statement that has been made.<br><br><br><br>
I don't think one can call their action "fun". Jesus!!!<br><br><br><br>
Till all the cages are free...

Sorry, I kind of agree with Soilman, The company will just increase security and buy more rabbits. It hurts them some moneywise and it is great that the rabbits aren't suffering anymore but it doesn't really impact the company much. The people who freed the rabbits will, if caught most likely get prison. I don't see how this really helps.

THEN, they get new rabbits. You see once they were done with the rabbits they had, didn't mean it was the end. If nothing had happen as soon as those rabbits died they would have got more.. anyway! <span style="text-decoration:underline;">thats what they do.</span><br><br><br><br>
So at least <i>those</i> rabbits have a chance. Don't you see, Like I said they would have got more rabbits for testing..... <span style="text-decoration:underline;">regardless</span> of this happening. at least it cost them time & money. Put a little fear into them.... and save a few rabbits lives

<i>Yay</i> for animal liberation! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rockon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rockon:"> It always makes my day to hear stories like this.<br><br>
Despite what others might think of them or their work, these people are my own personal heroes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

You are quite right.<br><br><br><br>
I suppose it's a bit like quantum physics. Either you understand it or you don't.

Those idiots, people who try and free animals like that and release them into the wild should be jailed for life, the impact on local wifelife is insane and not to mention some lab animals are given diseases that could wipe out massive populations if they ever got out.<br><br><br><br>
So much for animal activist, the idiots are really as much of animal killers as any lab.

Heros indeed.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
perspective for the non understanding:<br><br>
BillyBob Jones rescued 7 slaves today from a farm in Georgia, but the plantation owner will just buy more replacements from Africa or breed some more, and they're only like a dime a dozen, so it wasn't really worth it.

Comparing African-Americans to animals again? Nice.<br><br>
BTW, no white folk ever came down and "rescued" anyone. They did help slaves whpo escaped on their own, but I would appreciate it if the infantilization of my ancestors wasn't continued. Thanks.

eh, she has a point john and it should be considered in the future. Animals are definately given various diseases/conditions etc in the lab. That's one of the main reasons laboratories kill all animals involved in any study rather than adopting them out or something.<br><br><br><br>
While we're at it. I just realized today (and don't know why I didn't put two and two together in the past) that many standard laboratory tests that you would receive at a hospital uses animals. For example, antibody immunoassays (often the antibodies come from animals). Something to keep in mind for your next visit to the doctor or hospital. Read up on what ever test they want to give and try and find alternatives.

actually, if the rabbits are infected with a disease it can be spread to other wildlife- if the rabbits live long enough.<br><br><br><br>
liberation is great, but allowing animals that lived their entire life in a cage to die in the wild probably scared out of their wits is just as cruel as the labs.<br><br><br><br>
the rabbits should have been rehabbed and then rehomed.

yea, just think...hep c, aids, bird flu, genetic testing etc. There's a slew of potential issues there.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Agreed. Perhaps some of the funding various AR orgs receive could go towards a rehab type sanctuary.
