FBI probing San Diego fur shop vandalism

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A terrorism task force that includes the FBI is investigating vandalism at San Diego's only fur shop and the homes of the store owners.

U-T San Diego says animal rights activists claimed credit for attacks last week on the Furs by Graf store and the homes.

Authorities say attackers painted the words "killer" and "murderer" on the store and used paint, acid and other materials on it and the homes.

The Animal Liberation Front claimed responsibility last week on a website. Group spokesman Jerry Vlasak says he understands the attacks were committed on behalf of the group, although it has no formal membership.

The local Joint Terrorism Task Force, which includes the FBI, San Diego police and the county Sheriff's Department, are investigating.
