Vandals release 500 mink

Vandals cut holes in walls, enabling about 500 mink to escape from a fur farm in Brant County.

The name of the farm and the owner have not been released, but the owner asked Nancy Daigneault, vice-president of the International Fur Federation to speak for him.

She said the situation is similar to vandalism a year ago when several mink farms in the St. Marys area were hit by animal-rights activists.

Both this year and last, the vandals have hit when new litters are nursing and they will not likely survive.
