When Extreme Animal Rights Activists Attack Lawmakers, researchers, and peaceful activists all say they deplore violence committed in the name of animal rights. But laws that may label some protesters as “domestic terrorists” are upsetting activists.

Researchers Decry Animal-Rights ‘Terrorism’ CSI: Wildlife — Solving Mysterious Animal Deaths Reducing the Use of Animals in Experiments Science Comes to the Rescue of Lab Rats ‘Orcas as Slaves’ Argument Sinks

This is the third of several stories exploring the contentious relationship between the scientific community, which insists animal research is essential to medical progresss, and the animal rights activists working to abolish animal experimentation. Earlier pieces included the effort to shift the debate from sidewalks to courtrooms, and efforts to establish the “personhood” of species like apes and whales.

Daniel Andreas San Diego joined Osama bin Laden on the FBI’s “Most Wanted Terrorists” watch list in 2009. Bin Laden is gone, but San Diego remains. Listed as “armed and dangerous,” with a $250,000 price on his head, the Berkeley, California, native is only the second U.S. citizen to make this particular FBI list. He is 34, a vegan, and a skilled sailor. His tattoos depict burning, collapsing buildings. On his chest is a burning hillside coupled with the words, “It only takes a spark.”

San Diego is an animal rights zealot. He is under federal indictment for allegedly igniting explosive devices outside two Northern California firms – biotechnology giant Chiron and homecare-product manufacturer Shaklee — in 2003. The FBI says a potentially deadly second explosive at Shaklee, strapped with nails and likely targeted at first responders, was defused.

Frankie Trull, founder and president of the Foundation for Biomedical Research, calls these “inexplicable, unforgiveable kinds of actions.”

Is that the sound you hear when you hit an animal rights nut over the head with an aluminum baseball bat?

No one ever complains about the horse abuse at racetracks.
Often horses barely 3 years old who aren’t fast enough are sent right from the track to the slaughterhouse. These young animals have soft bones broken all the time and since it’s considered impossible to repair a horse’s broken leg, they’re put down and put in a dog food can.

But that’s fine. No one objects.

Dustin Hoffman was PO’d that his show Luck was cancelled just because 3 horses died on the set. What a stinking load of manure he is.

But we have to cry over a snail darter.
