Vandals strike at another Tulsa business early Tuesday. The Sangirardi Fur Shop at 41st and Yale has been the target of vandals several times since the first of the year.

Officials believe a group known as ALF, or Animal Liberation Front has shot out windows at the store. Early Tuesday morning, they pried the plywood away from the frame and splashed red paint and a clear substance on clothing and other items. Owner, Nancy Sangirardi, “evidently they don't feel like they've worked hard enough to try to run me out of business so they just keep continuing until they think I'm going to give up. I guess they don't know me very well because I don't give up easy.”

The furs were locked in a vault, so they weren't damaged. However, the vandals ruined items Sangirardi was selling to raise money for the diabetes association.

No one has been arrested.
