Two animal rights activists have been arrested under the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA) in connection to the release of mink from Utah fur farms. The crimes are attributed to the Animal Liberation Front, which the FBI labels the number one domestic terrorism threat.
William Viehl, 22, and Alex Hall, 20, were arrested in connection with the August, 2008 release of 300 minks from a South Jordan fur farm. It caused about $10,000 in damages. Spray painted slogans were found on the scene, including "No More Mink", "No More Murder" and "ALF: We Are Watching". The two are also accused of attempting to damage another mink farm a few months later.
