Leaked security alert #29: Unclaimed mink release in Minnesota

The 29th in a series of leaked Fur Commission “security alerts” Animal Liberation Frontline is posting this month.

Background: Animal Liberation Frontline has obtained dozens of internal fur industry “security alerts.” These bulletins are sent to fur farmers via email and fax every time there is a “security” related issue affecting US fur farms. The subject matter can range from trespassers being chased from farms, to unpublicized details of ALF raids, to farmers sharing license plate numbers of “suspicious vehicles.”

These are intended to be read by fur farmers only, and were not intended to be read by the general public. I will be posting approximately 30 bulletins over the next month.

Read a full background on this series here.

Synopsis of this alert

This offers new details on an unclaimed mink release from 2009. This incident had been previously reported, but very few details were available until now.

According to this report, mink were released within the fence, and presumably all were recaptured.

Attempted Attack on Mink Farm

Sunday, 9:30 pm, September 6, 2009, Richmond Minnesota – The Lang Farm reported spotting trespassers on the farm, police chased them and heard them jump the fence, moving through the brush around the farm (wearing night vision goggles?). No holes cut in fence but mink lose in and out of the mink yard (less than 50).

Farmers urged to remain alert as this was obviously an attempt  to release the mink and often such events happen to several farms wthin a week, all within driving distance of each other.”
