Turin, Italy - Dozens of birds were killed Wednesday at a private zoo
in Italy in an arson attack claimed by radical animal rights
activists, news reports said.
Several bottles filled with petrol were used to start the fire which
killed some 40 hawks, buzzards and owls in an aviary at the Zoom Zoo
near the northern city of Turin.
'This is for the imprisoned animals - Animal Liberation Front' was
found spray-painted in red near the scene of the early morning attack.
Firefighters prevented flames from spreading to a warden's shed and
other buildings, one of them housing several tigers, the reports said.
The recently built zoo was scheduled to open to the public in April,
its owner said.
The Animal Liberation Front name has been used by radical groups in
several countries. Some, such as at Oxford University in England, have
targeted centres where scientific experiments are carried out on
In 2002 hundreds of beagle dogs were stolen from a breeding kennel in
Italy by Animal Liberation Front members claiming they were saving the
dogs from being sent to laboratories situated abroad.
