Members of the House Agricultural Affairs Committee listen as dairy owner Terry Jones of Emmett, Idaho, speaks out in favor of the industry’s bill seeking to punish animal rights activists who secretly film abuse during a hearing on Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014 in Boise. The bill is a response to activists who in 2012 captured video of workers at a southern Idaho dairy beating and stomping on cows.
