Released FBI Photos Show the Aftermath of an ALF Raid

Never-before-seen FBI images of the morning after a Utah Animal Liberation Front mink release

Never-before-seen FBI images of the morning after a Utah Animal Liberation Front mink release

Voice of the Voiceless has received an anonymous set of files containing hundreds of documents from the William Viehl / Alex Hall Animal Liberation Front case. The files contained hundreds of pages of interview transcripts, affidavits, and more, giving a rare glimpse inside an FBI Animal Liberation Front investigation.

Viehl and Hall were convicted last year for liberating 650 mink from the McMullin fur farm in South Jordan, Utah.

The files received contained dozens of photos taken in the aftermath of two A.L.F. mink releases. These photos, never seen before, show liberated mink, torn-open cages, A.L.F. graffiti, sabotaged vehicles, and more.

The photos obtained show the aftermath of two A.L.F. raids:

Lindsey McMullin fur farm - South Jordan, Utah (650 mink released)

Chuck Lodder fur farm - Kaysville, Utah (7,000 mink released)

This post showcases photos from the Lindsey McMullin farm. In an article later this week, I will be posting photos from the raided Kaysville farm.

The best of the photos have not been included here, and can only be seen in the upcoming issue of Bite Back magazine. To get a copy of this issue, subscribe here.

These photos offer an extremely rare look inside a fur farm after a visit by the Animal Liberation Front.
