There are mink farms in my neck of the woods.I'm glad we don't live near one.As soon as I drive by a mink farm some country road blocks away,the air stinks like skunk.
Animal activists have released over 60 000 minks some years ago and less numbers,only 20 000 numerous times.The mink farmers could catch most of the minks.(What were the animal activists thinking,just releasing them into the wild and not caring for them.I can't understand their dumb,impulsive actions,without thinking of the welfare of the animals.They would starve in the wild,that seems to be a more humane way to those unthinking activists,I don't think so.).On a mink farm,minks are born in safety,raised cared for and fed in safety,they die quick and painlessly with gas. Personally I think of the skunk stink when I see someone wearing a mink coat or jacket.
