ALF Liberates Entire Deer Population from GNK Deer Farm

San Miguel, CA- In the early morning hours of January 18, members of the Animal Liberation Front liberated the entire imprisoned deer population of GNK Deer Farm in Monterey County, California.

A commenter writes: A few questions that I hope were / or will be considered in the future:

1) What deer species was this? Was it a local native species and subspecies or was it a non-native deer released with many harmful potential long-term impacts on local native flora and fauna. Alien species introduced into new habitats by humans is a leading cause of extinction. If this was not considered it should be considered in the future.

2) How many deer were released? Will local deer starve as a result of the increased population? What will be the impact on some of the very endangered local plant species in Monterey County?
