Activist attacks threaten research

This is an excerpt from the news story below. Please read the story to get the gist.
"An animal has as much of a right to life as we do. To take a life without provocation is immoral, it's violent, there's no excuse for it," said Jacob Black, 23, an organizer of demonstrations at the homes of UC Berkeley researchers. "To name and shame these people as morally bankrupt individuals in our society is key."

Animal rights activists, who declined to give their names, demonstrate outside the home of a University of California professor, on Saturday, May 31, 2008, in Berkeley, Calif. Borrowing the kind of tactics used by anti-abortion demonstrators, animal rights activists are increasingly taking their rage straight to scientists' front doors, harassing and terrorizing researchers and their families in their homes.  Over the past couple of years, more and more researchers who experiment on animals have been harassed and terrorized in their own homes, with weapons that include firebombs, flooding and acid.
