Animal activist to speak at WSU
OGDEN -- Peter Young spent two years in prison for turning thousands of mink loose from fur farms in the Midwest. Now he's spending time at Weber State University.
Young presents a lecture at noon Monday in the Wildcat Theater, on campus at 3848 Harrison Blvd.
According to the Facebook page of the university's Animal Unanimity Club, a group that helped organize the visit, the Salt Lake City man pleaded guilty to "animal enterprise terrorism" and conspiracy in 2005.
Young's own website, www.voiceofthevoiceless.org, says he is an "unapologetic supporter of those who work outside the law to achieve human, earth, and animal liberation."
The film "Earthlings" (2005) will be shown in conjunction with the lecture, at 7 p.m. Monday in the Wildcat Theater. Narrated by Joaquin Phoenix, the movie contains graphic video of the treatment of animals by industry. Young will introduce the film, then answer questions afterward.
Both presentations are open to the public, and admission is free. For information, call 801-626-7334.
