On the morning of May 20th, a visit was paid to Gervais Game Bird Farm (6565
St Louis Rd NE, Gervais, Oregon). This farm breeds 'game birds' both for
slaughter and to be sold to canned hunting operations. A flight pen located
at the edge of the property had its gate pried open, giving dozens of captive
ringneck pheasants a chance to fly off into the countryside. Do to logistical
concerns the remaining pens and enclosures on the farm which imprisoned quail
and partridge were unable to be breached. Tonight, direct action was able to
give a few animals a chance at freedom, but there is no solace in the
knowledge that some were left behind.
Ringneck pheasants are a naturalized species to the Willamette Valley and
those bred on farms retain the natural instincts necessary for survival in
In solidarity with animal liberation prisoner Kevin Olliff and the silent
ones on the run.
For anarchy and animal liberation.
