NCBA President Calls Terrorist Attack on Harris Ranch "Bad People Doing Bad Things"

Thu, 12 Jan 2012 13:04:33 CST

NCBA President Calls Terrorist Attack on Harris Ranch National Cattlemen's Beef Association President Bill Donald issued the following statement regarding alleged animal rights extremist attacks on Harris Ranch, located in Coalinga, Calif. While law enforcement has not confirmed who was responsible for the attacks, the North American Animal Liberation Press Office, on Jan. 9, 2012, that included correspondence from the group reportedly claiming responsibility.

"This is not only an attack on a family-owned and operated business; this is a domestic terrorist attack on our nation's providers of food and fiber. This extremist behavior goes above mere activism and the freedom of speech. These criminals are threatening lives and causing substantial economic harm.


"Anyone concerned about the welfare of animals would not orchestrate attacks on individuals who are experts at caring for these creatures. Ranchers are undoubtedly the very best caretakers of livestock. Cattlemen and women implement the highest animal handling and food safety standards designed by veterinarians, animal behavioral experts and researchers.


"These extreme attacks are nothing more than bad people doing bad things and they must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, just as any other criminal would be in this country.

"The National Cattlemen's Beef Association strongly condemns any and all attacks against farming and ranching operations. As a rancher, a father and a proud grandfather, I feel for the families impacted by this senseless attack. As president of the leading national cattle organization, I applaud my fellow cattlemen for their efforts to provide the safest and highest quality beef to consumers in the United States and beyond."
