Los Angeles Paying for Security for Animal Control Workers

The threats from animal rights activists against animal control workers have grown so extreme that Los Angeles is paying for special security for them. For example, a smoke bomb was set off in the apartment complex where the head of LA’s animal control department lives–a crime acknowledge by the Animal Liberation Front (ALF).

A spokesman for the liberationists state that the better course for LA would just be give in and adopt a “no kill” policy for strays, and then all would be better. Of course, that would be giving into Brown Shirtism, resulting not in peace but increased demands made by terrorists emboldened by their success. Moreover, it is very interesting that these thugs seem to have no trouble with PETA, which has admitted to killing tens of thousands of dogs and cats, with two employees currently up on felony charges in South Carolina for killing animals and throwing them away in dumpsters. Apparently, it isn’t the killing that is wrong. It is who is doing the killing.
