Pro-hunting website targeted by Anonymous?
First Published Feb 15 2012 07:42 am • Last Updated Feb 15 2012 04:25 pm

A Utah-County based pro-hunting website and its creator may have been targeted by a hacker claiming to be associated with the cyber-activist group Anonymous.

KUTV News reported Wednesday that Jason Fackrell claims his site huntersagainstpeta.com, as well as himself and his family, are being harassed by the person or persons who have posted his name, address, phone number and other personal information on the Internet, along with the phone number and address of his parents.

He estimates there have been about 100 threatening text messages or phone calls left for his wife alone, related to his site and its pro-hunting stance.

Fackrell says he has no intentions on shutting down the website, but so far has been unsuccessful trying to get the personal information off the Internet.

He told KUTV he is taking the matter to police.

It was unknown, given the secretive nature of Anonymous, if the hacker actually is associated with the group. Anonymous, or someone claiming to be part of the loose-knit association, also claimed to have recently crashed the Salt Lake City Police Department website.
