Deer ‘set free’ to die                                           
|By Jill Crooks       

THE Animal Liberation Front (ALF) has claimed responsibility for
|the release of more than 20 red deer from a sanctuary in         
|Potterne.                                                       
|                                                                 
|                                                                 
|The deer escaped from the sanctuary, in Devizes Road, a month   
|ago and at first it was thought to be the work of vandals.       
|                                                                 
|                                                                 
|But an anonymous message was placed on an animal activist       
|website and Special Branch are now investigating.               
|                                                                 
|                                                                 
|The ALF message on the Bite Back website says: "During the       
|morning of Thursday May 25, we took out our tools, and began to 
|destroy fencing.                                                 
                                           
|                                                     
|"We cut down the fencing of one field containing three breeding 
|deer, and then opened up gates, allowing a larger herd of deer   
|to escape from a second field.                                   
|                                                                 
|                                                                 
|"Unfortunately we had to leave a group of baby deer imprisoned   
|at the farm because they were too young to fend for themselves."
|                                                                 
|                                                                 
|Ominously the message ends with the words: "We will return, and 
|these deer will be saved from certain death.                     
|                                                                 
|                                                                 
|"We will not let these innocent animals end up on the dinner     
|table. This is just the beginning. ALF."                         
|                                                                 
|                                                                 
|Michael Petley, owner of the sanctuary, has condemned the action
|and highlighted how little research must have been done by those
|responsible as the sanctuary has been there for eight years.     
|                                                                 
|                                                                 
|Mr Petley, who has recently bought the property in Potterne and 
|moves in with his wife Natalie and their six children next       
|month, said: "What has escaped the perpetrator's attention is   
|that this is a sanctuary for deer.                               
|                                                                 
|                                                                 
|"It's not a breeding house for meat in the traditional sense of 
|farming or animal testing.                                       
|                                                                 
|                                                                 
|"It saddens me enormously to see our deer sanctuary subject to   
|such extensive and malicious damage.                             
|                                                                 
|                                                                 
|"I sympathise with anybody whose motives are legitimately to     
|protect any animals they consider as being exploited or         
|suffering from or subject to intolerable cruelty but with us it 
|is purely a case of mistaken identity. The sanctuary has been   
|there for the past eight years and before that was a deer farm. 
|                                                                 
|                                                                 
|"I intend it to carry on as a sanctuary to allow these gracious 
|animals to live in peace.                                       
|                                                                 
|                                                                 
|"These deer are not and never were destined for the dinner       
|table.' "                                                       
|                                                                 
|                                                                 
|Mr Petley, a fund manager who works in London, revealed that six
|deer had returned to the sanctuary but one had since died, he   
|thought due to the ordeal of being released.                     
|                                                                 
|                                                                 
|Mr Petley is also concerned that from August 1, the start of the
|deer season, more deer will die.                                 
|                                                                 
|                                                                 
|He said: "I don't want revenge. I just hope common sense will   
|prevail once the people responsible realise that it's not an     
|intense breeding farm for the freezer."                         
|                                                                 
|                                                                 
|The ALF is thought to have covert cells of activists working in 
|20 countries. A cell can consist of one person.                 
|                                                                 
|                                                                 
|Anyone with information about the release of the deer at         
|Potterne should ring PC Adam Mulliss at Devizes police on 0845   
|408 7000 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
