Kells, County Meath, Ireland - Frog farmer Denis McCarthy decided to begin an early retirement after a recent visit from members of the Animal Liberation Front (ALF), who damaged his car with acid and spray-painted his farm with animal liberation slogans. McCarthy's farm raised frogs for vivisection for more than 50 years. He said that he didn't mind ceding to the group's demands, which were to stop trading and to turn over all equipment to animal welfare organizations, because there was no business left anyway.
