According to Western Canadian Timber Products, Ltd, one of their 290 Hitachi Log Loaders was sabotaged near Mission, British Columbia, outside of Vancouver.
The alleged sabotage took place some time during the evening or early hours of April 11-12th. During the night, the timber company states, “Someone proceeded to cut a gate lock at our Logging location on the Patterson Creek [Road]… The person then placed a rock on the travel controls and proceeded to direct the Log Loader over the bank.
The company went on to remark that “The destruction of this machine has cost our Company greatly[.]”
To our knowledge nobody has taken credit for the action.
