the Animal Liberation Investigation Unit recently sent a communique and
loads of pictures proving 2 Italian mink farms have closed down for good.
one is De Nardi farm in Vittorio Veneto. This had never been raided and
looks quite small, and seems closed from a few years (now a few
sheep are inside the compound). What makes this discovery important is that
de Nardi was president of AIAV (Italian Mink Farmers Association) a few
say they inspected also the storage room at night and found cages of singing
birds that were smashed with the animals released... even if their aim was
just an inspection they couldn't leave those animals in such a tiny cage.
and most important, discovery, is Anipel mink farm in San Martino Buon Albergo
(Verona). This farm has been subject to a lot of actions and has finally
are empty and some sheds are being dismantled, with a lot of cages outside
the farm near the truck of the company that is "On sale". The
first liberation at Anipel was back in 1995. After years of peace their
life became impossible in 2006, when an arson and a liberation struck them
in a few months. In 2008 the Alf went back at the farm to free all animals
twice in a week and the owners lost almost all of them, forcing them to
pics you can still see some ALF graffiti on the sheds and walls of the farm.
