ALF Activists Burn Company That Sells Animals for Research

Activists from ALF are claiming responsibility for a fire that caused an estimated $300,000 damage to Scientific Resources International. From the site:
In the early morning hours of May 18th, four incendiary devices were planted at Scientific Resources International, a supplier of non-humyn primates for use in vivisection labs all over northern Nevada. The concept of animals existing as "resources" is utterly despicable, and we vow to do all in our power to run businesses like these into the ground. "For only a fool would cling to this world as it is" --ALF
Scientific Resources International keeps a lower profile on the internet then ALF. Here is one little blurb I found out about them from the University of Wisconsin:
Scientific Resources International, Ltd.

Scientific Resources International (SRI) specializes in naive purpose bred non human primates for research. We offer top quality Chinese origin Rhesus (Macaca mulatta) and Chinese and Indonesian Cynomolgus (Macaca fascicularis) primates.

SRI can also offer direct international shipment, if your organization is an authorized and licensed quarantine and use facility. Please contact us for a written price quotation.....we look forward to supplying your primate needs.
Other then that, they seem to make a real point to fly under the radar.
