Yea, I also heard them on Animal Voices! I think that approach is much better than the whole ALF thing, but it's still illegal, right?
It is still illegal. It forces the industry to confront the issue though if they want to lay charges. The idea is that by being overt and showing that we have nothing to hide, the tactic is much more powerful. On the flipside, a lot of people think it is just blindly walking into arrest. It's nothing a tactic that has gotten much play in North America though.
