FBI Offers $20,000 Reward in Louisiana State University Case

The FBI announced in January that it is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for the September 2003 attack by the Animal Liberation Front on a Louisiana State University lab.

The ALF claimed responsibility for the vandalism at the university’s Inhalation Toxicology Research Facility. Activists destroyed computers and other lab equipment used to study smoke and other toxins that can contribute to cardiovascular and respiratory disease. The attack caused an estimated $250,000 in damage.

Anyone with information should contact their local FBI office.
