On Sunday, over 30,000 animals who were destined to become nothing more than fur pelts were set free from a farm in Minnesota. According to the New York Daily News, the authorities believe that animal-rights “radicals” may be to blame for the release of the minks.
The animals were being held at Lang Farms near Eden Valley – whoever released the mink did so under cover of darkness. Stearns County Sheriff Don Gudmundson, who is quoted in the Star Tribune, commented on the situation, “These nitwits think they are doing something good.” He explained why he is disgusted, “A large number will starve to death. They weren’t taught to hunt by their mother. Others will get run over on the road.”
There is concern that the animals, which can travel for “miles and miles,” may wreak havoc on the surrounding native wilderness area.
Lang Farms wants anyone who spots a mink to call them at 1-320-453-4750.
