Last Friday morning, around 50 animal rights activists stormed Gippy Goat Café in eastern Victoria, Australia, in order to free animals from slavery.

The activists carefully but quickly took 3 goats and a lamb from the café and put them in the back of their jeep and then drove away with a mission of freeing the animals.

“We are not asking for bigger cages or better conditions,” Joanne Lee, one of the animal rights activists in the scene, said in a statement.

“We are demanding the end of commodification of animals. They do not exist for human use.”

The café’s security footage and the video that the activists uploaded on social media showed the vegan activists climbing the café’s wooden fence to get a lamb while the scared goats ran inside for cover.

After carrying the lamb to the jeep, the activists then took 3 goats from the pen.

Gippy Goat Café uploaded the security footage on their Facebook page and apparently blocked the vegan activists sharing images and videos of the true conditions of the animals before being rescued from the café.

Some of the goats seem unhealthy and can’t walk properly due to leg problems.

The activists will face theft and animal cruelty charges but a police spokeswoman told Daily Mail that as of today, no charges have been filed.

Meanwhile, Paul Cornelissen, the café’s manager, said that the activists’ action deprived 2 kids of breast milk and was lost for words.
