[Iowa State Daily]
Campus security notified the faculty and staff of the department of animal science via email that several locations on campus have been named as potential threat targets. The locations are the: meat lab, rodeo, Office of Responsible Research and Veterinary College.
According to the email, Capt. Carrie Jacobs of ISU Threat Assessment and Management has rated the threat as a five on a scale of one to 10. The email said the threat should not be ignored.
In a phone interview, Jacobs said there have been no direct threats toward Iowa State, but faculty and staff should still be on guard. She explained that Saturday is the 10th anniversary of animal rights activist Barry Horne's death.
