Feds Target Bay Area Activists
Mon Apr 25 2005
Arrest, House Searches, and New Alert Turn Up Heat
4/24/2005: Federal agents have recently been targeting Animal Rights activists in the Bay Area — arresting one, following and detaining others, raiding two homes, and posting a new bulletin for a "wanted" suspect. Peter Young was arrested on March 21st in San Jose. Federal officials have accused him of freeing some 8,000 mink from fur farms in Wisconsin, South Dakota and Iowa. He had been sought since 1998 after being indicted, along with Justin Samuel, on charges of violating the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act. Justin Samuel was caught by authorities in 1999. After agreeing to implicate Peter Young in a plea agreement, Samuel served two years in prison and now resides in San Diego. Animal rights activists have shunned Samuel as untrustworthy and a snitch. Young faces up to 82 years in prison. Since the arrest of Peter Young, there have been increasing levels of activity by the Feds in the counties of San Francisco, Alameda, Santa Clara, and Santa Cruz. The scope of the warrants issued suggests that their primary emphasis is on targeting people who are doing support work for Peter.

Meanwhile, the FBI is still looking for Daniel Andreas San Diego, their prime suspect in the 2003 bombings of two East Bay companies targeted by Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC). Last week, an updated bulletin seeking his arrest was posted and distributed widely across the mainstream media regarding new information the FBI has apparently gathered regarding distinctive tattoos.
