With Huntingdon Life Science’s sales and stock price on the rise, animal rights activist had appeared to stop making predictions of its imminent demise. Not to fear, though, as Greg Avery has once again said that Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty has HLS on the verge of insolvency.
In a Washington Post story on SHAC and HLS reporter Glenn Frankel writes,
Brian Cass, Huntingdon’s managing director, said his company has survived the onslaught and is back on its feet. But Avery, who insists that he and his supporters operation within the law, contends that the campaign is well on its way toward driving Huntingdon out of business within the next two years.
I guess we’ll have to check back in on January 1, 2007, but I suspect by then the date of the apocalypse will have again been conveniently moved back.
The whole bit of acting within the law is also a sham, as Frankel notes that,
In the early days of the campaign, Avery was arrested and jailed for threatening the life of a Huntingdon official.
Avery also served several months in jail in 2001 for his role in coordinating a campaign of harassment against HLS employees. He has been convicted a total of four times related to his actions against HLS according to the Post.
