Animal rights groups step up attacks against Novartis

Animal lovers range in intensity from those who wouldn't needlessly harm animals but definitely put human life ahead of animal life, to those who see them as equal, to those who put animal life ahead of human life. The public at large, I'd venture to guess, belongs to the first group for the most part, and is unable to fathom the acts that extremist animal rights groups make.

Recently, an animal rights group has been harassing and intimidating Novartis (NVS) employees and CEO Daniel Vasella in particular, as well as disfiguring company properties and setting several fires.
