ALF Gives Xmas Present to Brooklyn Fur Shop

Received Anonymously
December 25, 2007

Today, on Christmas Eve, a fur selling Brooklyn boutique was
visited by the ALF at their peak shopping hours. One activist
distributed liberal amounts of Liquid Ass, a product that, when
sprayed, is the noxious and overpowering stench of rotting shit.

Fur stinks and your entire store, the carpets, the clothing, and
especially the fur and fur trimmed items, were sprayed with the
Liquid Ass and all smelled like the inside of an asshole in

Victory was already beginning as leaving the disgusting fur-filled
store, a pair of potential customers walked in, visibly gagged on
the rotting, putrid stench and promptly left. It's sure that
they're not the only customers who went elsewhere to do their last
minute shopping.

A message to anyone who sells fur in Brooklyn: This was only a
calling card. STOP SELLING FUR!

Next time you might find your locks glued, your windows broken, or

Happy Holidays,

this act has some value, in the sense that someone is actually acting, but it's effectiveness is utterly minimal.

yes, the probable goal of gaining visibility and awareness [sic] were arguably achieved, but the ultimate goal of ending the torture of the fur industry is really left untouched.

"Next time you might find your locks glued, your windows broken, or worse..."

OH, COME ON! do you think they really care? do you think this is going to stop anything!?

please, move beyond purely symbolic actions. take aim at the economic crutches of the industry - knock them out from under them and send them toppling! and if you have ideas for how to go about this, DO NOT SHARE THEM HERE, despite what Clyde wants above. keep them secret. take action, and never tell a soul.
