Biologist speaks out: Can farm-raised mink survive in the wild?

Biologist speaks out: Can farm-raised mink survive in the wild?

Several credible studies have been published over the years showing that ranch-raised mink both survive and thrive in the wild.

To add to this discussion, here are several quotes taken from the rare book The Mink (Dunstone), further supporting this.

On domestication claims:

“The fact that escapee animals so readily adapt to alien countryside, and to differing species of pray and climatic conditions, indicates that man’s…

New bobcat farm approved to open in Montana

New bobcat farm approved to open in Montana

The North Dakota fur farm owned by Larry Shultz has been approved to relocate to Roy, Montana. Background: After taking comments over the summer, the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks has approved a license for a commercial bobcat fur farm. The application for the fur farm drew international attention, and over 20,000 comments. The state of Montana finally announced yesterday the farm application has been approved, citing “no substantive opposition to the laws or regulations in Montana that reflect opposition to the permit.” Media reports the farm will be one of only two “large scale” bobcat farms in the US. This information is, however, unconfirmed. When opened, the address for the Larry Shultz bobcat farm will be: 5700 Romunstad Rd Roy, Montana 59471 Sign up to receive three fur industry reports published by Coalition Against Fur...

Media: Only two large bobcat fur farms remain

Media: Only two large bobcat fur farms remain

In a recent article covering the relocation of a bobcat farm from North Dakota to Montana, an interesting fact was reported: According to one reporter, only two “large scale” bobcat farmers remain in the United Status. One of them, according to the article, is the aforementioned farm owned by Larry Shultz, applying to relocate to Roy, Montana. The other is presumed to be the Fraser Fur Farm in Ronan, Montana. Several other farms are known to breed small numbers of bobcats for fur. And several more are known to breed bobcats for an unknown purpose – possibly for fur, possibly for pets. If this information is accurate, it places both of the remaining “large scale” bobcat farms in Montana. Sign up to receive three fur industry reports published by Coalition Against Fur...

United Vaccines sourcing primate blood for mink experiments

Coalition Against Fur Farms has received information indicating that United Vaccines, the last remaining vaccine supplier for US fur farms, is purchasing primate blood from leading vivisection supplier Lampire Biological Laboratories. The precise purpose of the primate blood was not explained in the tip received by CAFF. However, this bit of information further establishes the interconnectedness of animal exploitation industries, and the endless links between vivisection, fur, “animal agriculture”, and more. Coalition Against Fur Farms considers the fur industry to be no worse (or better) than vivisection. With that said, it’s worth noting that even those involved in primate vivisection consider the fur industry to be so abhorrent that it is worth (anonymously) leaking information on. United Vaccines currently operates a research facility in Fitchburg, Wisconsin; and a “naive mink” facility in Blue Mounds, Wisconsin.   Sign up to receive three fur industry reports published by Coalition Against Fur...

1,000 pounds of mink carcasses spill off boat in Oregon

Update: A local crab fisherman has been charged with illegally dumping the mink carcasses. He faces a maximum of 10 years in prison. While the fur industry feebly attempts to maintain a pretense of being “green,” claiming all of the animal is used by being spun off into various byproducts, an incident this week in Oregon shows otherwise. Over 1,000 pounds of skinned mink were found floating off the coast of Brookings, Oregon this week. The culprit was identified as a fisherman who was taking the carcasses out to sea to “dump” them, but the carcasses accidentally fell off the boat close to the shore.

Fraser Fur Farm confirmed open as of March 2014

Fraser Fur Farm, believed to be the largest wildcat farm in the U.S., has been confirmed open as of March 2014. This confirmation comes after an anonymous visit by activists, who confirm the farm remains in business. Fur farms close (and occasionally, open) frequently, and status updates can be so hard to come by, that Coalition Against Fur Farms exists in part to provide these status updates as they come in. Fraser Fur Farm is best documented in this anonymous report, and the book Operation BiteĀ  Back by Dean Kuipers. The farm is believed to imprison coyotes, fox, and bobcats, according to records obtained by CAFF. Sign up to receive three fur industry reports published by Coalition Against Fur...
