Mink ‘slaughter’ dozens of baby ducks after extremists set free 500 animals from B.C. fur farm
A plan by animal rights extremists to illegally release 500 mink from a B.C. fur farm may have backfired after local farmers began reporting that escaped mink were feasting on their baby ducks.
“I came down one morning to let them out and they were just slaughtered,” Aldergrove, B.C., farmer Jae Woodlock told Postmedia this week, describing the sight of a coop piled with dozens of dead ducks.
The mink’s preferred method of killing is particularly gruesome. While coyotes will simply snag their prey and carry it away, mink will wipe out entire pens in a bloody orgy of vampiric neck biting.
“They bite their necks, they suck the blood and then they’re on to the next — they don’t eat them, they just go from duck to duck,” said Mr. Woodlock’s sister Sandra, who lives on the property.
The attacks began right around the same time that, 14 kilometres away from the Woodlocks’ farm, extremists from the Animal Liberation Front broke into an Abbotsford, B.C., fur farm and set loose 500 mink. (Photo: Fotolia)
