Members of an animal activist group have claimed responsibility for recent vandalism to a North Vancouver resident's truck.
The Animal Liberation Front, a radical animal rights group, damaged the interior of a truck that belonged to Eugen Klein, owner of Capilano Furs and Taxidermy Studios on either the evening of August 13th or the early morning hours of August 14th.
"It was more to his personal property, it wasn't to any furs or to his house," said Cpl. Richard De Jong, spokesman for the North Vancouver RCMP. "They did mischief to his truck and left under the cover of darkness. We're still looking for potential suspects."
The group posted about the incident on their website and threatened Klein and his wife. "We approached the residence of Eugene [sic] Klein and shot syringes filled with a foul smelling liquid through the rubber sealing and into his truck."
Klein did not want to comment on the attack when contacted by North Shore News.
This is the second time Klein's personal property has been the target of vandalism. In late May 2012, a truck and car parked in Klein's driveway were spray-painted with red paint. One of the vehicles was not owned by Klein. ALF claimed responsibility for the attack at the time, as well as attacks on four other Lower Mainland fur companies.
