Mink eat each other after animal rights break-in

A month ago, I posted about the Animal Liberation Front liberating 10,000 minks from a fur farm in Washington state. About 9,000 of them were eventually recaptured, but there’s been a slight problem. They are eating each other.

Normally, only siblings are caged together, but workers cannot readily determine which of the recaptured mink are related, said Kate Roesler.

“The mink are fine when they’re litter mates together, but when they’re not they’re quite vicious and they’re cannibals,” Roesler said. “They do eat each other, and that’s what we’re battling.”

Hmm. That sure was helpful.

The world is full of people who mean well.
