BERKELEY, Calif. (Map, News) - In the hills above the University of California's Berkeley campus, nine protesters gathered in front of the home of a toxicology professor, their faces covered with scarves and hoods despite the warm spring weather.
One scrawled "killer" in chalk on the scientist's doorstep, while another hurled insults through a bullhorn and announced, "Your neighbor kills animals!" Someone shattered a window.
Borrowing the kind of tactics used by anti-abortion demonstrators, animal rights activists are increasingly taking their rage straight to scientists' front doors.

I'm not quite sure what an appropriate method of protest would be. If it's simply writing to the offenders or circulating petitions, that probably would do no good. I might suggest staging protests but not violent ones. On the other hand, that might not scare the offenders enough.
I'm open to suggestions.
Over the past couple of years, more and more researchers who experiment on animals have been harassed and terrorized in their own homes, with weapons that include firebombs, flooding and acid.
