PETA has also given $2,000 to David Wilson, then a national spokesperson for ALF, who has told the press: "We started with animal rights, but we've expanded to wildlife actions like the one in Vail."
"The one in Vail" was the 1998 ELF firebombing of a Vail, Colorado ski resort, which destroyed $12 million in property and endangering dozens of firefighters.
PETA's ties with terrorists are nothing new. PETA served as the de facto spokesgroup for ALF in the late 1980's, holding press conferences to praise ALF criminals and field media questions just hours after laboratories were destroyed or buildings burned down.
And in 1995, PETA gave $45,200 to the "support committee" of Rodney Coronado, a convicted arsonist who firebombed a research facility at Michigan State University, and also "loaned" $25,000 to Coronado's father. (He never paid it back, and PETA never complained.)
The same year that PETA lined terrorist Coronado's pockets, the animal rights group spent less than $3,955 on animal shelters.
