"We've been busy, sorry for not sending a report earlier!!

British Columbia, Canada: These actions were done over the past year:

Activists rescued 25 battery hens from 3 different farms on 3 different occasions. One farm where 17 hens were rescued, eggs were smashed and doors were ripped off the hinges, this farm is now closed down for undisclosed reasons.

Eight turkeys were also rescued from 2 different farms, on two separate locations.

None of these farms were locked and we encourage others to walk through their unlocked doors as well...

The Fraser Valley of British Columbia is a factory farm HELLHOLE and we will be back to save more lives from these animal terrorists!!

You'll here from us again, ALF"
