Homie has a slave cat though.
If he was really ALF, he'd be eating the damn cat.
Hah! I kill me!

i don't condone this at all, but for the discussion i thought i'd mention no person or animal has ever been injured during a 'liberation'. they just attack property.
Goethe and ernie
How does that fit in with putting bombs in scientists' cars?

Are you shitting me? "They just attack property"?
"Firebombs that struck the home and car of two UC Santa Cruz scientists this weekend were part of an increasingly aggressive campaign by animal rights activists against animal researchers at University of California campuses, officials said Monday.
"Santa Cruz police officials said the blasts, which occurred three minutes apart, caused one of the scientists, his wife and two young children to flee their home through a second-story window."
"Vlasak, of the North American Animal Liberation Press Office website, said his organization had received no communique from any group claiming responsibility for the Santa Cruz fire bombings. Although he said he had no direct knowledge of the attacks, he also said that 'the use of force' is 'not unpredictable or untenable.'
"'The inconvenience and the suffering of any children or any family members pales in comparison to the suffering and oppression that goes on in these animal laboratories,' Vlasak said in an interview Monday. Feldheim is 'putting himself and his family in harm's way by continuing to abuse animals.'"
"ALF activist Donald Currie, for example, was jailed for 12 years and placed on probation for life in December 2006 after being found guilty of planting homemade bombs on the doorsteps of businessmen with links to HLS. HLS director Brian Cass was attacked by men wielding pick-axe handles in February 2001, an attack so serious that Detective Chief Inspector Tom Hobbs of Cambridgeshire police said it was only by sheer luck that they were not starting a murder inquiry. [...]
"In June 2006, the ALF claimed responsibility for a firebomb attack on UCLA researcher Lynn Fairbanks. The Animal Liberation Press Office issued a statement saying that Fairbanks was conducting "painful addiction experiments" on monkeys. Fairbanks stated that she studies primate behavior and does not do invasive research. A firebomb was placed on the doorstep of a house occupied by Fairbanks' 70 year-old neighbor and a tenant; according to the FBI, the device was lit, and was powerful enough to have killed the occupants, but it failed to ignite. The attack was credited by the acting chancellor of UCLA as helping to shape the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, a bill before the U.S. Congress to give law enforcement officials more power when dealing with animal rights activism. ALF spokesman Jerry Vlasak said of the attack on Fairbanks: 'force is a poor second choice, but if that's the only thing that will work ... there's certainly moral justification for that.' In July 2008 Vlasak said that he said he is not encouraging anyone to commit murder, but 'if you had to hurt somebody or intimidate them or kill them, it would be morally justifiable.'
"As of 2008 the organization was increasingly taking protests to the homes of researchers. Tactics used have been hurling insults and writing slogans on the researchers property. One of the organizations websites lists personal information and graphic descriptions of alleged work of University of California, Berkeley researchers while saying 'we do not participate in or encourage illegal activity. ' Jerry Vlasak stated that the attacks were 'necessary' and that it is unreasonable not to expect such consequences.'"
I can post more. For example, there's the bomb threats and bombings, the researchers getting assaulted at their homes, and the time some SHAC loonies dug up a corpse to intimidate a family.
