A Russian Animal Rights Activists group “Animal Liberation Front” or “ALF” have made an extreme action in St. Petersburg region. They liberated 30,000 minks from the cages whom were held on the territory of the farm.
They got inside the farm, crushed the fences and opened cages where 30 thousand minks were held. The animals ran away, only a small fraction of them were captured next day. The damaged caused by the ALF actions was estimated at $300,000. The owners of the farm had to suspend all the workers of the farm, thus a whole village was left without a job.
In a few days another group of “ALF” tried to penetrate to another farm of the same owners. They came to the farm on two light trucks and a few passenger cars, but the security service of the farm was able to repulse an attack.
Here is the video made by “ALF” while their visit to the first farm:
According to “ALF” statement, they are “happy for each mink that was able not to return into the hands of butchers. Every saved life of each mink is worth of what we have committed. We address to all the owners and workers from farms we already visited or which we will visit in the nearest future: leave the animals alone! They can live in the wild nature all by themselves, because nature is their original home!”
