A common role in fiction is to break into the lab of a MadScientist and release his genetic aberration or terrible virus or upset his delicate experiments, with catastrophic results. In some cases, this will be accidental or the activists well-meaning but misinformed, but in some they will know they're releasing a monster, and do it anyway. Expect particularly clueless members of these organizations to react to these beasties (or, indeed, standard dangerous animals such as tigers) with fawning coos and an apparent [[AllAnimalsAreDomesticated belief that the animal will somehow recognize them as an Animal Rights activist and not harm them]]. [[TooDumbToLive This belief]] will inevitably be rewarded with [[RealityEnsues a very painful death moments later]].

* Subverted in Episode 3 of Series 2 (Episode 2.3) of ''{{Series/Primeval}}'', as it isn't really an Animal Wrongs '''Group''', ''per se'', but rather, a solitary individual fighting against a group to protect what she views as the rights of her pet (prehistoric) animal. A woman named Valerie Irwin finds a ''Smilodon'' cub in her garage several years before the episode is set and raises it to adulthood. Later, the ARC team are alerted to the existence of the ''Smilodon'' after the occurrence of several incidents involving it at an amusement park called Blue Sky Park. They investigate, and suspect that someone is harboring the cat. After several false leads, this person is revealed to be Valerie. When Nick Cutter confronts Valerie and asks her to hand over the cat to the ARC (after she had previously [[spoiler:sicced the cat on Nick to get it to kill him]]), she accuses him and the ARC of "creating him in some kind of horrible genetic experiment" and wanting to take him away and make him suffer. When Cutter points out that, if the cat kills him, it will kill her as well, she retorts by saying that "He would never hurt me", convinced that the ''Smilodon'' views her as a mother figure since she cared for it for so long and would never attack her (Valerie apparently either forgetting or being completely unfazed by the fact that the ''Smilodon'' had [[spoiler:slaughtered her boyfriend several years beforehand]]). Cue [[spoiler:KarmicDeath, as the ''Smilodon'' pounces on Valerie and savages her with its elongated canines, ending her life.]]
