New Mink Farm Under Construction in Ohio?May 09
Coalition Against Fur Farms has received word that a new mink farm is being constructed near the Indiana border in Ohio. Our tipster stated the address for this upcoming farm is:
2707 Hoaglin Rd
Van wert, Ohio. 45891
The farm is said to be owned by a mink farmer from Holland, who owns several other farms. The word is he is paying a local farmer to set up and operate this farm.
A quick Google search for the address shows that it belongs to “Lion Farms”, also the owner of this nearby mink farm in Nottingham, Indiana. A corresponding satellite image search does not reveal any obvious mink sheds at the Ohio address. This raises two possibilities:
- The operations are one and the same, with the Ohio address being a business address, and the animals held at the Indiana address (9555 S 250 E, Nottingham, Indiana).
- These are two separate farms owned by Lion Farms LLC, with the Ohio address still being under construction (as indicated by our tipster).
