Default "animal rights" activist sentenced to prison for criminal vandalism

Animal-rights activist gets two years in prison for campaign against fur

SAN DIEGO An animal-rights activist accused in a cross-country
fur-industry vandalism and mink-liberation campaign has been sentenced
to two years in prison.

Joseph Buddenberg pleaded guilty in February to a charge of conspiracy
to violate the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, a federal law passed in
2006 that criminalizes "damaging or interfering with the operations of
an animal enterprise."

A codefendant, Nicole Kissane, pleaded guilty to the same charge.

The two were arrested in July 2014, charged with participating in a
concerted campaign against the fur industry in the summer and fall of
2013 that totaled some 40,000 miles in covert travel before it was over.

One of the early targets: Furs by Graf in San Diego's Kearny Mesa

The store was spray-painted with the words "killer" and "murder," its
windows etched and acid sprayed into the shop, according to court
records. The vandalism caused an estimated $30,000 in damage, court
records say.

The homes of the store's owners also were vandalized.

This is very good news.
