I hope the link works.

Thanks Lugnut, I couldn't get it to work for me.

I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

6,000 to 8,000 escaped after some misguided anti-fur dumb-arse cut holes in the fence.

Authorities are asking for trappers to help catch them.

Time and money. There is only so much capital to spend. So you pick and choose what seems the best use of funds. But seeing how profitable the fur market is...

Probably not a great choice of occupations if you cant afford good security in this day and age. Of course, maybe insurance policy is so good that it is a welcomed event every few years?

If the fur farmers have insurance for such things they might make more of a profit this way. lol

My buddy had a ranched fox set up. He had a really nasty dog running free In the pen.

That was my thought. Maybe intentional by the farmer?

Unless the ranches are design far different then those near us, just cutting holes in the fence would not release thousands of mink. Someone needs to go in and open the doors on thousands of cages too.,
As to higher tech alerts etc. The larger remaining ranches near us have sophisticated monitoring systems on the newer facilities and ways to send warnings to staff.

Maybe most of them will come back home after they polish off every thing in that vicinity that walks, crawls or swims.

How far is that from Minktoberfest location ?
The attendees this year can go out and wipe them out for pre-season practice.
