Italian Fur Raid

18/8/10

According to local media a mink farm in Conco, Vicenza, Italy) was raided on the afternoon of Wednesday 18 August at around 2.30! The farm had apparently been monitored before the raid and was known to be unattended. The farmer was alerted by an alarm and arrived to find fences cut open and between one and two thousand mink running every which way.

The same farm was visited by an arson attack in 2005 and raided again two years ago.
