Oregon mink farm may also imprison foxes

The photo below was obtained from an owner of the Black & Blue Farms mink farm in Stayton, Oregon. It is not 100% confirmed that this photos was taken inside the farm, and the possibility exists that it was taken at another Oregon fur farm.

Please send any corroborating info to whistleblower [at] coalitionagainstfurfarms [dot] com. Note: Co-owner Lyndia Basl also owns/operates a local convenience store called Detroit Market (100 Detroit Ave. N., Detroit, Oregon 97342).     Sign up to receive three fur industry reports published by Coalition Against Fur...
