The FBI Wants Animal Activist...



By David L. Howard

With the death of Osama Bin Laden, The FBI’s “Ten Most wanted Terrorists” added Daniel Andreas San Diego, a U.S. citizen and animal rights activist to their list.  The others on the list are wanted for aiding al Qaeda, attacking federal facilities or committing air piracy.

Mr. San Diego has been indicted for helping bomb Chiron Corporation and Shaklee.  Chiron is a pharmaceutical company and Shaklee makes vitamins and shampoos.  He targeted these companies because of their ties to British-based Research Company that performs laboratory testing on animals.  He also placed a second bomb timed to kill or injure police and firefighters arriving on the scene.

He is the first animal rights activist to make the list believing the so-called rights of animals take precedence over the health and well being of humans. 

A recent article in the Wall Street Journal stated “Unlike al Qaeda, however, animal rights extremists enjoy worrisome public support for their cause.  Polls by the Foundation for Biomedical Research  show that only half of Americans support the use of animals in health-related research, down from near-universal 40 years ago.  This decrease has followed massive campaigns by organizations such as PETA and the Humane Society of the United States (which spends only a tiny fraction of its huge budget on animal shelters, with most going to ‘educational endeavors’ according to IRS forms reviewed by the Watchdog Group Humane Watch).”

The article goes on to say “Opponents of animal research distribute images that are altered or outdated, even 50 years old in some cases.  And they never mention that animal research is regulated and inspected by the federal government.  We researchers are a soft target for misinformation because we don’t speak well to the public, prefer to work in our laboratories, and tend to assume, incorrectly, that the truth will win out.”

Editor’s Note:  Please read the last two paragraphs above from the Wall Street Journal and see if is not exactly the same way humane groups have treated the Walking Horse industry.
