Animal Liberation Front releases hundreds of mink from a fur farm in Cambria Township

The Animal Liberation Front (ALF) is claiming responsibility for releasing more than 600 mink at a Cambria Township farm on September 24th.  The farm raised mink are fully domestic animals that can’t survive in the wild and usually die of dehydration or stress within 24 hours.   90-95% of the mink were recovered within a few hours of their release.  The owner of the farm, a 93 year old gentleman, is devastated by what he describes is an act of terrorism.  The group’s actions are part of a larger “bite back” initiative that is outlined in its “Final Nail” publications.
