AN animal rights extremist has been jailed for 21 months for launching a “campaign of terror” which caused $100,000 of damage to mink farms in California.
Nicole Kissane caused massive damage to fur farms when she broke in and freed the animals, causing huge financial losses.
She pleaded guilty to conspiracy to violate the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act after she admitted to damaging the businesses by freeing minks from fur farms in San Diego.
The case was heard on December 27, 2016 and she was sentenced today to 21 months jail with 36 months probation to follow.
She was also ordered to pay $423,000 in restitution.
Kissane 30, has a long history of using vandalism and terror to further her agenda.
She has been involved in animal rights extremism since 2012, when she and her colleague Joseph Buddenberg attacked several American cities, using paint, acid and glass to destroy properties and businesses.
