GRAND MEADOW, Minn. (AP) - A Mower County farm is among mink ranches apparently raided by animal rights activists in a number of states, including Wisconsin.
Owner Einar Myhre says hundreds of mink were released at his farm near Grand Meadow in the middle of the night early Monday or late Sunday. Employees, fellow farmers and friends helped Myhre round up the majority of the animals. Myhre tells the Star Tribune he was able to retrieve all but about 75 mink.
About 2,000 mink were released from the Bonlander Furs farm in New Holstein, Wisconsin. As of Tuesday morning, the farm has 1,800 of its mink back.
The FBI and Calumet County Sheriff's Department both said on Tuesday morning that they have no new leads and the investigation is ongoing.
The Animal Liberation Frontline, a website that tracks the releases, claimed other raids have recently been carried out in 8 states.
