Vandals have devastated a mink operation near St. Mary’s, causing losses estimated at $200.000.
Ontario Provincial Police describe it as a break, enter and mischief occurrence on the weekend.
The vandals released about 1,600 caged mink females, in many cases leaving nursing kits behind.
They are not likely to survive.
About 1,000 of the mink have been located, but others remain missing.
