The Animal Cruelty Investigation Group
(ACIG) was set up in June 1989 with the aim of
acquiring the hard evidence of the cruel abuse of our fellow
creatures in order to curtail such abuse. The ACIG exists to raise funds for investigation work and then to
promote the results of that work. ACIG investigators strive to expose all
forms of cruelty to animals. They aim to gather, by any lawful means,
the still images, video film, and documentary records that will
expose the truth to the public.

Tragically, some people working for animals have suffered appallingly at the hands of the abusers. Several have paid the ultimate price. They will never be forgotten. The memory of their sacrifice should inspire us all to do much more for the cause that we know to be just. ALL who give their lives for animals are remembered but we do particularly recall the following whose lives were taken by our opponents:-
James Piper, RSPCA Inspector : Died in 1838 after sustaining
severe injuries tackling cockfighters at Hanworth, Middlesex.
William Sweet, LACS member : Murdered 6/1/1976 after altercation
with man shooting birds. Assailant was jailed for life but has long
Michael Hill, Hunt Saboteur : Killed 9/2/1991 protesting against hare hunting at the Cheshire Beagles.
Thomas Worby, Hunt Saboteur : Killed 3/4/1993 protesting against fox hunting at the Cambridgeshire Foxhounds.
Jill Phipps, Animal Rights Activist : Killed 1/2/1995 protesting against live exports of farm animals, Coventry Airport.
Paola Quartini, animal activist for LIPU (Italian League for Bird Protection - UK) from Genoa, Italy and Elvio Fichera, a volunteer for the Association of Abandoned Animals : Both were murdered 12/5/2010 whilst trying, with police, to serve a warrant on Renzo Castagnola for cruelty to animals. Renzo Castagnola shot them dead, then injured his wife, then killed himself.
