Animal Rights Hall of Shame: Kevin Kjonaas aka Kevin Chase

Criminals, Sex Predators and Drug Addicts. Welcome to the World of Animal Rights.

Meet Kevin Kjonaas aka Kevin Chase aka Kevin Jonas aka Steve Shore aka Jim Fareer (Kevin gets around). 

A convicted felon. Buddies with Lara Trump, President Trump’s daughter-in-law. A former member of the Animal Liberation Front (ALF). The animal rights movement has made it their goal to subvert the Trump White House and sadly they have made huge inroads in their goal.

“She really wants to be the first First Family member that champions an animal issue,” said Kevin Chase, the Beagle Freedom Project’s head of operations. “Usually it’s military stuff, veterans, children, eating healthy. She’s like, ‘I want to finally be the voice of some animal stuff.’”

The problem is, all of the ‘animal stuff’ that Lara Trump promotes comes straight out of the mouths of criminals, perverts and sex predators. People who know nothing about animals.

People like Kevin Chase.

Chase likes to downplay and/or cover up his extensive criminal background. Like it’s no big deal. You tell me if it’s no big deal that Chase’s Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) campaign was exaggerating the harassment he subjected his victims too. The Huntingdon Life Sciences medical research laboratory with locations in both England and America was targeted for destruction by extremists from the dog killers of PETA because the animal rights movement is ideologically opposed to medical research. Chase was the leader of the American branch of SHAC. In 2006, Kjonaas (aka Chase) with six others was charged with conspiracy to violate the Animal Enterprise Protection Act (AEPA) in the first case testing the 1992 law.

Victims of the SHAC campaign, several of whom testified at trial, often endured vandalism of their homes in the dark of night, including rocks being thrown through windows, cars being overturned, messages in red paint plastered on their homes and property, unrelenting bullhorn protests in front of their homes and harassment of neighbors.

Chase and his cohorts targeted the employees of companies that he disagreed with. In order to shut down medical research and send us all back to the stone age, Chase and his pals targeted individual employees one by one to harass using his declared “top 20 terror tactics.” Chase and his criminal circle took their terror one step further by targeting the employees of insurers, financial services and investment firms that provided benefits to the employees of the company that Chase was trying to put out of business.

The “top 20 terror tactics” implicitly encouraged the invading of offices, vandalizing property and stealing documents; physical assault, including spraying cleaning fluid into someone’s eyes; smashing windows of a target’s home or flooding the home while the individual was away; vandalizing or firebombing cars and bomb hoaxes; and threatening telephone calls or letters, including threats to kill or injure someone’s partner or children.

SHAC wasn’t his first criminal campaign. Chase started his career back in the 90’s as a spokesman for the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) a group that the FBI named the #1 domestic terrorist threat in America. ALF was originally founded in England in 1976 by a convicted criminal. Bomber Ronnie Lee. Here in America, the FBI estimated that ALF and their associates were behind over 1,100 criminal acts causing over $100 million dollars in damages.

After serving six years in prison for his terror campaigns as part of the “SHAC 7,” Chase has reinvented his past by launching a new animal rights group called the Beagle Freedom Project to try and white wash his history. Nothing says cover-up like posing for pictures with cute puppies. Puppies he claims to have saved from horrific medical research labs that are torturing and killing dogs and cats. Except they aren’t. 

In 2014, one of Chase’s blinded followers who called herself “Katie Johnson” in the paperwork she filed adopted a beagle named Jerry from University of California Davis School of Veterinary Medicine. Less than 24 hours later, Jerry the beagle was being paraded around as a poster child for being ‘liberated’ from cruel and sadistic medical researchers who were going to kill him. Except they weren’t.

Jerry spent the entirety of his short life as a test subject, never getting the chance to play or even smell fresh air. “ Beagle Freedom Project.

All lies. Jerry the beagle was not a medical research subject. Jerry was at UC Davis for just a few weeks for students to observe him being examined and neutered. He was one of exactly TWO DOGS used each year for this demonstration, dogs who are always adopted out afterwards and not killed.

According to his 2015 IRS filings, Chase is pulling in $1.6 million a year from gullible donors who either don’t know his criminal history or don’t care. Donors such as Microsoft’s Bill Gates who gave Kevin Chase $500,000.

On behalf of the National Association for Biomedical Research (NABR) and our more than 360 university and corporate members nationwide, I write to express our concern with your selection of the Beagle Freedom Project (BFP) to receive $500,000 from Microsoft’s Upgrade Your World contest. While it may appear your contribution will go toward improving the lives of animals, the facts tell a different story.

It’s a sad day in America when criminals and sex predators make more money than their victims do. What is worse is that Kevin Chase has been a featured speaker on Fox News and at Washington DC’s George Washington University Law School Animal Law Program in 2018. Teaching his twisted criminal views to the next generation of America's lawyers.  Views that terrorize human beings and don't save the lives of a single animal.
