 $35,000 AWARD STILL AVAILABLE FOR ARSON INFORMATION
 ST. PAUL, Minn., May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- A national fur farming


organization is still offering up to $35,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of militant animal rights activist who burned two farm and research facilities in the Pacific Northwest last summer.
 The National Board of Fur Farm Organizations created the award fund in response to arson attacks at the Oregon State University mink nutrition center in Corvallis, Ore. and on the Northwest Farm Food Cooperative in Edmonds, Wash. last June.
 The Animal Liberation Front (ALF), a secret international organization with a long history of attacks on farm and research facilities claimed credit for the blazes. The first caused nearly $1 million in damages.
 "We continue to encourage anyone with information concerning these attacks to contact the investigating law enforcement authorities immediately, " said National Board President Skip Lea. "In addition to being eligible for this award, callers will help bring fugitives to justice and help protect farm property and farm families from further violence."
 Lea said knowledgeable parties should contact law enforcement authorities toll free at the following numbers: 1-800-452-7888, with information concerning the OSU fire, or 1-800-55-ARSON, with information concerning the Edmonds fire. To provide further information, parties should contact: Lt. Richard Hein of the Oregon State Police, Public Service Building No. 107, Salem, Ore., 97310, or 503-378-3720, ext. 335; or Gary McComas, Fire Marshall, 250 Fifth Avenue North, Edmonds, Wash., 98020, or 206-775-2525.
 The award fund was created by the National Board of Fur Farm Organizations together with contributions from several other groups. No one who particpated in either arson fire will be eligible to receive award funds.
