Sheepskin Factory Burned to the Ground in Colorado
Over 42 firefighters responded to a blaze at Sheepskin Factory April 30th in Denver, Colorado. The fire reportedly broke out at 3:15am and gutted the building. It has been ruled arson.
Sheepskin Factory sells sheep carcasses.
Agents from the the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are investigating the fire.
To date, neither the Animal Liberation Front nor other clandestine animal liberation group has claimed responsibility. Reporting on this action is not to be taken as a speculation of an animal liberation motive. Rather, I wish to offer what may be a broader and more accurate view of the scope of underground animal liberation activity.
Numerous unclaimed but “suspicious” actions are reported at animal abuse sites every year. For example the 2009 explosion at the only Slim Jim production facility in the U.S., for which a cause was not determined.
Similar unclaimed actions have been reported in Colorado. On January 13th, 2002, another sheepskin business went up in flames north of Denver in Greeley. The building was burned to the ground. No claim of responsibility was made in that fire either, but the fire was deemed suspicious due to A.L.F. graffiti threatening arson being found at a similar plant in Denver the previous month. This latest arson marks the second burned down sheep skin business in Colorado.
