TOWN OF NEW HOLSTEIN - A $5,000 reward is being offered in the wake of the release of mink from a farm in Calumet County.
Fur Commission USA, a mink farmers’ trade organization, announced the reward Tuesday. The reward is offered for information leading to the arrest of the person or people responsible.
Authorities say early Sunday morning, someone broke in to Bonlander Furs in the town of New Holstein and released 2,000 of the animals. As of Tuesday morning, the farm had recovered 1,800 mink. The FBI is treating the crime as an act of domestic terrorism.
A similar incident happened either Sunday or Monday at a farm in Grand Meadow, Minn.
The Animal Liberation Frontline, a website that tracks the releases, claimed other raids have recently been carried out in 8 states.
Anyone with information is asked to call (717) 983-8477.
