Firebombing of KFC in Reno May Be Linked to Extreme Environmental Group

The FBI is investigating the apparent firebombing of a KFC in Reno after authorities found the initials of an animal rights group scrawled on a drive-thru sign, The Associated Press reports. 

Investigators believe a window was broken at the restaurant, and flammable liquid was found inside, in what may be a domestic act of terrorism.

The initials – ALF – stand for Animal Liberation Front, a group of environmental advocates who have firebombed laboratories and other places linked to animal cruelty. Another KFC was firebombed in February 2014 in New Zealand, and ALF took credit.

The FBI confirmed the investigation but declined to say why the bureau is involved.

“We don’t have any additional details at this time,” Pappas told AP. “And because it is an ongoing investigation, we won’t be commenting.”
