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.
