Mayor Rudolph Beggley "can we get a comment.. it has been suggested by some that this might be the work of the Butchers or some "downtown redevelopment" scheme of yours. Perhaps dealing with an outside organization.... Mayor..... Mayor!!"
The Shankhill Butchers Cattle Company Ltd categorically denies any and all responsibility for the attacks on Cowford. No doubt that reprobate Rudolph Beggley has been up to his usual tricks and has brought down the wrath of unknown agents against that fair metropolis. We all remember how his terrible challenge to all villains in the world at large once drew down a devastating attack by the Airship Abhorrent on Spectre Steamwerks. The Shankhill Butchers pledge that the regular supply of beef drawn from their mutant yellow hammer herds will continue to the support of the town with only a slight increase in cost necessitated by the obstruction of the Highway 17 corridor by debris from the attacks.
