Earth Liberation Claims Responsibility For SUV Firebombing
Friday, January 03, 2003
On Friday, the environmental terrorist group Earth Liberation Army claimed responsibility for setting several SUVs on fire at Bob Ferrando Ford in Girard.
The claim was released on the ELFs website. The statement says the group targeted the SUVs to continue the fight to remove the profit motive from the killing of the natural enviornment."
The FBI says it is taking the fires very seriously. Four SUVs were completely destroyed when jugs of gas were placed under three of them and then lit.
The vandalism occurred just before 6:00 a.m. New Years Day. Police estimate the damage at $100,000. Owner Bob Ferrando says his insurance will cover the damage.
Back in November, the ELF claimed that it teamed with the Animal Liberation Front in setting fire to an Erie mink farm. The ELF also claimed responsibility for the August 11 fire of a Forest Service lab in Warren County, and claimed responsibility for spiking trees and setting a crane on fire in Winter Green Gorge last March.
