    Animal Rights Activists Claim Responsibility On SoMa Provider of High-End Meat

    Marin Sun Farms's SoMa meat processing headquarters has been vandalized -- by animal rights' activists, according to reports.

    The provider of upscale meats moved into a new processing facility in SoMa this summer, according to InsideScoop SF. And two weeks ago, workers arriving for their morning shifts found tires on vans slashed and doors glued shut, the Chronicle's food blog reported.

    It was not immediately clear who -- or what -- would do such a thing. Until, of course, the Internet showed the truth.

    A Google alert from a "group of animal rights extremists" said that "Around midnight on August 12, we held local animal abuser Dave Evans and Marin Sun Farms accountable for the lives... of pigs, cows, lambs, chickens and goats killed," the post read in part.

    Evans, the food blog reported, is in fact "one of the good guys" raising pasture-bred livestock in a "sustainable" fashion.
