This was an act of domestic terrorism plain and simple. It's shameful that in 2013 we still have law enforcement officers that would view this as a prank. The financial impact to the farmer and the death of these animals due to the release should be investigated in the light of the felonies that this is.
Animal Rights extremists trespassing on private land, releasing animals from the protection of their cages causing their death should receive the full attention of law enforcement.
Time to start taking this seriously. A prank? NO! Federal agents are not treating like a prank and I pray ALF you are all arrested and sent to prison for your crimes against the farmers.

I agree that this should not be tolerated but I don't see the upside to putting people in prison for this. I think the offending party(ies) should have to pay restitution and perform community service but putting people is a bad answer to a problem. There has to be a better way.
