Animal-Rights Activists Torch Wrong Cars

Vehicles in the neighbor of a UCLA researcher are set afire.


Animal-rights extremists have claimed responsibility for last week torching the cars of a person who lived near a UCLA animal researcher, the Chronicle of Higher Education reports. School officials say the victim was mistakenly identified as a university affiliate and that they condemn all such attacks. "Words cannot express the contempt we hold for these acts of cowardice," the UCLA chancellor wrote.
