Animal Liberation Front “Liberates” Hundreds Of Minks From Farm!

The eco-terrorist organization known as the “Animal Liberation Front” claimed credit for releasing hundreds of domesticated minks from a Pennsylvania mink farm…

For the unacquainted, domesticated minks are ferret-like animals that have been selectively bred from wild American mink for many generations to produce individuals sporting specific coat colors for the fur trade. Wild minks are predators that generally hunt alongside waterways, and they stalk a variety of prey including frogs, mice, voles and bird eggs. Mink coats have certainly lost their popularity in North America, but the demand in China and Greece fuels the demand for the shrinking number of surviving American mink farms.

On September 25th, one or more vandals entered the Ebensburg based mink farm and managed to release just under 500 minks, while damaging cages and personal records. These domesticated minks don’t have the survival instincts of their wild forefathers, so it’s a good thing that the majority of the released animals were recovered before they died of predation, dehydration or starvation.
The Animal Liberation Front, or “ALF” claimed responsibility for the vandalism of the sixty-year-old mink farm in an anonymous statement sent to an animal rights publication. It is estimated that ALF attacked this past week in anticipation for the upcoming winter pelting season in an attempt to drive the farm out of business.

 

Whether or not anyone agrees with the practices of fur farming, the theft, vandalism and intimidation of the farmers and their hard-earned property is flat-out wrong. If you have an issue with the domestically raised fur market, write your representatives in Congress, start a petition to raise awareness or some other peaceful way of communicating your feelings on the matter, but actions like this will only make people stand against your cause.

The above is unadultrated

The above is unadultrated (potty mouth language), brought to you by those who profit from the torture, killing and skinning of animals for pure fashion sentiment. Scientific studies have proven that captive mink are not "domesticated" and have the ability to survive when released into the wild. Captive mink have been banded and released, found to distribute themselves over hundreds of square miles, and are fully capable of hunting and foraging for food.

Whenever in doubt about the truth, follow the money. Those who exploit animals for their own monetary gain will say anything to maintain their income. Luckily, the ALF are coming for them, one by one, until all are free. Long live the ALF!

ALF and the rest of the

ALF and the rest of the criminal element are sentencing these mink to death when they open their cages and allow domesticated animals to run loose in traffic and starve to death. Domesticated mink are like pets and die when released from their cages. Farmers take extremely good care of their mink because they want a great fur product. The propaganda that these animals is mistreated is folly. These attacks on family farms are a publicity stunt committed by scammers looking to increase donations to their "cause". So many dumb people giving hard earned money to criminals who open cages and kill innocent farm animals in the name of compassion....

I don't like the slaughter

I don't like the slaughter of other sentient beings as well but there are strides made without having to go with illegal practices ALF. Take West Hollywood for instance that just banned the sale of fur. Why don't you jump on that bandwagon and try to outlaw slaughter in the U.S. or get other cities to also pass anti-fur laws. Otherwise, you are just breaking the law yourselves for breaking property or trespassing on others property which I'm sure you wouldn't want either. I get the cause but its a matter of how that cause interferes with the legal rights of others.
