The animal rights crowd is a bunch of lunatics, and what happened on a Minnesota farm is proof of it.
These people claim to be interested in the welfare of animals, but the truth of the matter is that they’re only interested in their own virtue signaling and punishing those who they deem offenders of animal rights. Such is the case with a mink farm in Minnesota, where the “activists” (read: domestic terrorists) “set free” 38,000 of the animals, only to have them die by the thousands because they weren’t raised in the wilderness and they starved to death.
The Washington Times reported that the owner of the farm became so distraught that they couldn’t even bear to go near their barns. Apparently, even after being corralled back into their pens, the mink became aggressive and started ripping one another to shreds.
From the Times:
“If they actually cared about animals they wouldn’t release thousands of mink to die out in the heat,” Stearns County Sheriff Don Gudmundson said Tuesday, the Associated Press reported.
“They are not interested in animal rights, they are interested in chaos,” he said.
The farm’s owner said the terrorists ended up killing over half of his stock.
Dan Lang, owner of Lang Fur Farms, estimated that more than half of his animals are dead, he told the St. Cloud Times. He and a group of neighbors have spent hours rounding up the dead mink, and the live ones, he said, are now fighting among each other because they’ve been thrust into different groupings.
“We just threw mink in pens to try to get as many back as we could. And now they are killing each other,” he told the St. Cloud Times. “And they’re still dying. They are still dying from heat stress.”
While the animals can’t be easily replaced, Lang can take comfort in knowing the FBI is investigating the case as an act of domestic terrorism, and they should be. Not only are these lunatics trying to scare the farm’s owner, but they cost him over $750,000 plus a tremendous loss of life from their stupid stunt.
Sadly, the incident is taking a serious toll on Lang.
“I’m so sick of crying. It’s unbelievable,” Mr. Lang said. “For the first time in my life this morning, I didn’t want to be [in the barns]. … I want to be by my animals but I can’t bear to see what’s going on anymore.”
“I wish these people that did this would come here every day for two weeks, and they could help pick up the dead ones,” he said.
So much for animal “rights.” I hope the FBI finds each and every one of these people and throws them in federal prison for a decade.
