The State

November 27, 1987

Animal rights activists protesting animals "living lives of misery to appease the flesh eating tendencies in America" claimed to have started a fire in a San Jose meat packing plant barn, the second blaze in a Santa Clara County meat company in three months. A two-alarm fire swept through a hay and grain barn at Ferrara Meat Co., and a woman who telephoned the Associated Press bureau in San Francisco read a statement saying the Animal Rights Militia had set the fire. A similar call was made to the bureau after a Sept. 1 fire at the San Jose Valley Veal Co.
