Two Minnesota mink farms reported to be closed

A tipster reports that two mink farms were visited and found closed. The farms reported closed are: 37110 800th Street/County Road 12 Okabena, MN (mink farm) 7009 110th Avenue NW Byron, MN (mink farm) This is the anonymous report: “Last month, an activist visited the (former) mink farm at 37110 800th Street/County Road 12 in Okabena, Minnesota to assess the operational status. All former mink sheds were found dilapidated, and only filled with buckets and buckets of aluminum cans and glass bottles. It appears the Schmidt’s have traded in their profession killing mink, and are now professional recyclers/hoarders. Another farm was visited in Byron, Minnesota (7009 110th Avenue NW).  Though not as unkempt and dilapidated, this farm was visited and both sheds were inspected. No cages and no animals present. One now serves as a carport for the Hovey family car. However, both sheds are standing and unlike the farm in Okabena, not filled with trash.  This farm should be monitored in the future to ensure the Hovey’s never again imprison mink.” Sign up to receive three fur industry reports published by Coalition Against Fur...
