Shop targeted by saboteurs


Flash in the pan or start of a co-ordinated campaign? Shooting and fi shing businesses asked to be extra vigilant...


A


n ‘anarcho-vegan collective’ (really?) is claiming to be


responsible for a senseless attack on a Sheffi eld-based fi shing tackle shop. Woodseats Angling had its windows smashed and items taken from the shop window at 1.15am on 15th August. The attack came with no warning. ‘Unoffensive Animal’ posted a statement (see pic) on both Facebook and Instagram claiming responsibility. The posts on social media were removed shortly after. Mark Holmes, owner of Woodseats Angling in Sheffi eld, told T&G: “There was no warning or anything - and we still don’t know if this

is a targeted attack or a bungled robbery – as some gear was stolen. “Luckily we’re insured and


it’s business as usual. “Woodseats Angling has been in business for over 50 years and I have owned it for the past 15 years. “We’ve never had any trouble and


it’s a very busy street. Even at 1am there’s people and cars about. “To do the damage they’ve obviously had some serious tools. It’s 8mm thick glass – it really does take some breaking.” T&G understands that fi nger-prints and other forensic evidence may have been recovered by the police from some of the items strewn across


the pavement after the attack. Whether this was an isolated incident or the start of something else remains to be seen, but the group has form, having already targeted butchers, fi shmongers, McDonald’s and farms.
