On the night of March 16th, 2015, a gate on an aviary was opened at the Estacada Game Farm (25395 South Beavercreek Road, Beavercreek, OR) liberating a flock of ring-necked pheasants into the wild. These birds were bred, among other reasons, to suffer and die in pre-orchestrated canned hunts; a practice which represents the height of human arrogance and disregard towards animal life.

This liberation is dedicated to the individuals who are currently being prosecuted and/or imprisoned under the "Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act". This liberation was also done as a reminder that when we don't allow fear to prevent us from taking action to directly free animals, we render the AETA obsolete.
