From the Associated Press:

A jury in Winchester, southern England, convicted Gerrah Selby, Daniel Wadham, Gavin Medd-Hall and Heather Nicholson of orchestrating a campaign against suppliers of Huntingdon Life Sciences between 2001 and 2007. They will be sentenced on Jan. 19 along with three people who earlier pleaded guilty to conspiracy to blackmail. Huntingdon Life Sciences has been a long-standing target of animal rights extremists.

The members of Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty, used threats such as claiming that company managers were pedophiles, sending hoax bombs, dumping paint stripper on an executive's car and making threatening telephone calls. Campaigners also mailed used sanitary towels to a company, claiming they were infected with the AIDS virus, and homes of company managers were daubed with slogans including "puppy killer" and "Bill the murderer."

The harassment would stop only when a company put out a "capitulation statement" to SHAC promising not to supply Huntingdon Life Sciences, which conducts animal testing for the pharmaceutical industry. Targeted companies included GlaxoSmithKline, Astellas, F2 Chemicals and Biocair, prosecutors said.

And you thought that they were just sweet little own ladies.


  1. PETA is the #2 domestic terrorist in the USA. The lemmings (aka movie and music celebrities) that support their cause are IGNORANT. "They know not of what they do" - JC.

    Watch Penn and Tell's Showtime series Bullsh*t on the evil and hypocracy that is PETA.

    When I first started showing dogs in 1990, PETA's slogan was "Better dead than enslaved." It was reported that they were poisoning or letting loose dogs at shows.

    If you are a member or supporter of PETA, do not identify yourself to me as such. I may not be able to keep my emotions and feelings in check.
