#Anonymous leaks Japanese Zoo’s Data to Expose Animal Rights Abuses

March 24, 2016

(ANONHQ) An Anonymous group called KarmaSec has leaked a data trove in protest of animal abuse in Japan. In a tweet, they claimed to have hacked into the server of Japan’s Yamaguchi Prefecture Tourism Promotion Division’s website.

The group targeted the Japanese zoo Akiyoshidai Safari Land Natural Zoo located in Yamaguchi, and threatened to release even more data if the zoo did not release all of its animals. They appear to have even more incriminating data.

Release ALL of the animals! Warning you is too late. Your shit has been leaked to the public. If you do not release the animals we will continue. PS: Smile mother fuckers you have been exposed!

Anonymous had previously brought down Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s official website in protest of Japan’s cruel whaling practices, via #OpKillingBay. They had also hacked several Japanese finance firm’s, the Japanese Ministry of Finance’s, the Financial Services Agency’s and Nissan Motor’s websites.

Last year, Anonymous also took down the world’s largest animal abuse and bestiality forum with #OpBeast.

Since you’re here…

…We have a small favor to ask. Fewer and fewer people are seeing Anti-Media articles as social media sites crack down on us, and advertising revenues across the board are quickly declining. However, unlike many news organizations, we haven’t put up a paywall because we value open and accessible journalism over profit — but at this point, we’re barely even breaking even. Hopefully, you can see why we need to ask for your help. Anti-Media’s independent journalism and analysis takes substantial time, resources, and effort to produce, but we do it because we believe in our message and hope you do, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting and finds value in it helps fund it, our future can be much more secure. For as little as $1 and a minute of your time, you can support Anti-Media. Thank you. Click here to support us
