2 car bombs meant as attacks on UCLA research *
Here we go again. There's word this afternoon of another attack by animal activists involving UCLA researchers. Details from the Associated Press:
Anti-animal research activists are claiming responsibility for torching two vehicles they thought belonged to a researcher at the University of California, Los Angeles.
Activists connected to the Animal Liberation Front say they destroyed the vehicles on Nov. 20 to protest the work of Goran Lacan, a researcher who used animals while investigating treatments for morbid obesity and eating disorders.
The group accidentally targeted the wrong address, according to a UCLA press release. University police with the help of Los Angeles police, fire officials and the FBI are investigating the incident.
