I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Pretty sizable group probably needed to open up fences and then usher those released animals toward the opened areas leta alone open the cages for that many mink. With roughly a max of two per cage that is 10-20K of hatches that need to be opened and all in a short period of time and to be unoticed. Typically when excited the mink can get really noisy themselves.

vast majority will be dead by Saturday road kill/starvation/dehydration...I don't believe a mink farmer would set his own mink free......they just "pelt out" also ranch mink fur in the wild goes bad really fast

Yeah, I thought about that. You'd think they'd have good security.

Just in time for trapping season-good timing.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

Ok, I see that, just wondering what they should have done, if it wasn't some anti group that let them loose.

I suppose the question is, what SHOULD a company do in that situation ?

Pelt them out and go bankrupt, I guess.

They cut a 3x5 foot hole in the wall. A lot of the white mink were painted red. This morning they said about 10000 were unaccounted for. I talked with the county sheriff and the neighboring sheriff today. They even had some law enforcement skinning.
