The Richwine family declines comment on impact of raid, tells activists God
is on their side.
Montana newspaper article this week, Kathy Richwine of Fraser Fur Farm told
activists that Jesus loves them.
activists took credit for entering the fur farm overnight on March 7th, and
destroying breeding records. Fraser Fur Farm is believed to be the largest
bobcat farm in the country.
Destroying breeding records works: A tacit admission
More usefully, she refused to confirm (or deny) that the raid had a significant
impact on the farm.
Owner Kathy Richwine was able to confirm the attack, but would not confirm the
significance of the destroyed records for fear of giving possible future
attackers fuel for the cause.
Quite obviously, the only response that would “fuel” future actions would be one
that confirmed what is already known: Lost of breeding records can be
devastating to fur farms.
Farmer cites biblical basis for animal abuse
When asked to justify to their captive bobcat operation, Kathy Richwine said:
…her family and the ecoterrorists have completely different ideas about the
natural order of the world. Her world view is Biblically established, with
humans having dominion over the earth and its creatures.
Oddly, she seems to believe God is on the saboteur’s side, and offered them this
“I’d tell them that Jesus loves you.”
