Animal rights terrorists have claimed responsibility for breaking into a pheasant-breeding farm in rural Oregon.
In an email distributed to area media outlets including the Statesman Journal, the publication “Bite Back magazine”, a terrorist front publication, said it received “an anonymous claim of responsibility” for the incident from the group Animal Liberation Front (ALF), an FBI-designated domestic terrorist organization.
It is unclear from the email, which was sent March 16, whether the incident happened on March 14 or Thursday.
“Last night, the night of March 14, we infiltrated the property Queener Ridge Pheasant Company at 40485 Queener Drive, Scio, which breeds ringneck pheasants primarily to be murdered in commercial canned hunts,” according to the email.
In the statement, activists claimed they jumped a barbed-wire fence and dismantled a section of an aviary that held between 75-150 pheasants, “liberating them into the night sky.”
