The Barron County Sheriff's Department said it's investigating several cases of hunting stands and trail cameras being torn down, damaged or vandalized.

According to the department, one instance in the Prairie Farm area appears similar to other cases in Dunn County, and they may be connected to a group called Animal Liberation Front (ALF). The sheriff's department said the group is an international, leaderless resistance that engages in direct action in the pursuit of animal rights.
