An organization calling themselves the "San Francisco Animal Liberationists" took responsibility for vandalizing a San Francisco meat processing facility owned by Marin Sun Farms. According to an online post, the group copped to gluing locks on the building, slashing 16 tires on four vehicles, and etching the glass door of Marin Farms' Oakland butcher shop. The reason: "We took action on behalf of the thousands of pigs, cows, lambs, chickens, and goats killed for profit by Marin Sun Farms... Animals are not biological machines designed to serve those with class and species privilege."
As Inside Scoop SF notes, Marin owner Dave Evans is "widely known as being one of the good guys" in the meat industry, pioneering the local sustainable movement and emphasizing the importance of pasture-raised livestock. Ultimately, Evans tells ISSF that "the vandalism was minimal and did not detour us in feeding our community who supports our efforts."
