Could the world’s most dangerous animal liberator be relaxing in the friendly confines of crunchy
western Massachusetts?

A Bay Area activist whom the FBI considers to be one of the world’s most dangerous terrorists might be holed up there, the agency said Wednesday.

Daniel Andreas San Diego, 33, is wanted for the 2003 bombings at Chiron in Emeryville and Shaklee in Pleasanton. Two bombs exploded about an hour apart at Chiron on Aug. 28, and a nail-studded bomb blew up at Shaklee on Sept. 26. No one was injured.

FBI agents in Boston said Wednesday they had received a credible tip from the “America’s Most Wanted” TV show that San Diego might be in the area of Northampton, Mass.

An animal rights group claimed responsibility for both bombings, saying the targets had business ties to a firm that tested products on animals.

The FBI said San Diego, a Berkeley-born computer network specialist and vegan, has ties to animal rights extremists.
