Animal release shouldn't count. It's cheaper to let animals be free than to keep them in cages and torture them.

someone should compare this map to the clinton/obama map that was posted earlier.

these are the fucking idiots that set fire to a professor's office when i was a student at michigan state. cuz you know, nothing drums up support for your cause like arson!

Are these proven?

Cause the FBI says the recent arsons here weren't ELF.

These are from a Myspace page somehow maybe kinda sorta related to the ELF. Or it could just be some goofy hippie kid.

Didja hear that Animal Liberation Front and al-Qaeda are joining forces, corporate-merger style? It's true! They'll now be called ALF-Qaeda.

Yuk yuk yuk!

They're usually good about leaving their calling cards when they pour sugar into the tanks of farmers' equipment down here. I'm not anymore sympathetic to their, er, "cause" than those farmers are.

Besides, if they keep burning down affluent exurbs, they are going to completely destroy the native habitat of the next generation of E.L.F.'ers. They might be the first group to terrorize themselves out of existence.

What @7 said,
Also, what is the source of this graphic?

Posted by Bald Face Lie | March 5, 2008 4:44 PM

Actually, did you hear that Scotland now has a cow art piece that "farts" on the hour?

On the plus side, if these new arsons turn out to be ELF arsons and not insurance fraud, that will put us over the top! Woo hoo! Go WA!!! If you value those houses at a couple mill each, that will put us in second place behind CA, blowing right past that chicken shit Colorado!

Something to be proud of!

Posted by Reverse Polarity | March 5, 2008 5:00 PM

They blew up chicken shit in Colorado?


Posted by Will in Seattle | March 5, 2008 5:52 PM

Not bigness.

i didn't think ELF did animal release, i thought that was ALF...wasn't it? are they forming a merger sometime soon?

Posted by cook | March 5, 2008 8:12 PM

This same map is on the ELF wikipedia page. On that site it is noted as being from 2004.

Everybody Loves Fire.

Can you put up a graphic of damage caused by "home" developers? How much is the nature worth that those 5 oversized "homes" destroyed forever?

Posted by not an eco-terrorist | March 6, 2008 8:57 AM


see #9 above. it's true! and yes, be afraid, be very, very afraid--and vote for Hillary or ALF-Qaeda will let the scary, scary dogs out!

In each case of arson the houses, condos, ski resorts and etc. were rebuilt. How does doubling the materials usage and dumping tons of particulates into the atmosphere help the environment? There is no indication that anyone has not bought an SUV or a large house because of these people. In fact, I have a friend who went out and bought a mink coat because a PETA protester berated her for wearing a nice fake fur. She decided that if she was going to attacked for not hurting animals she might as well go the whole hog.

While protesting helped change industry attitudes towards using animals for product testing the decrease in such testing is largely economic because newer technologies were developed since animal testing is very expensive. Cell cultures can be used to test for reactions for a fraction of the cost of keeping cages full of animals. Released animals are always replaced so how does that help?

Although the goal of preserving the environment is laudable these ELFers are ineffectual and intellectually lazy.
