Colorado mink farm discovered, reported closed within days

The only known mink farm in Colorado was “discovered” this week in a newspaper article headlined “Moffat County mink farm relocation proposal causing a stink.” The article covered the plight of a previously unknown mink farm operating without a permit, and attempting to relocate to a property 15 miles away.

As usually happens, neighbors at the farm’s present location had complained, and neighbors and its proposed location were also complaining. The uproar led to controversy over whether the county commissioner should approve the farm’s permit to relocate.

The same week the article ran, the farm was raided by activists and the farm announced it would be forced to close.

The owner of the property where the farm was to relocate told the media he would continue to apply for a fur farm permit, presumably to either open his own mink farm, or host another fur farm that might relocate there.

Whatever the case, the county commissioner denied to property owner a permit, and no farm can legally operate on the property now.
