This is the second such raid in Utah since August, when animal liberationists took credit for the release of over 650 mink and removal of breeding records from a South Jordan Fur Farm.

The Fur industry has come under renewed attack in recent months with mink being released from farms across the Western United States and Canada. In August Liberationists released 6000 mink from a fur farm in Aldergrove, British Columbia, making this the second raid against this facility since 1995 when the ALF released 5000 mink from their cages. Oregon has seen hundreds of mink released in two separate raids this year, In September the ALF took credit for the release of 215 mink from S&N fur farm in Scio and in April released 53 mink and destroyed records at a fur farm in Jefferson. In late April a communique was also released claiming responsibility for the November 2007 liberation of 200 mink from a fur farm in Deming, Washington. These actions are just a small sample of the recent escalation in militant direct action targeted at the fur, vivisection, and meat industries throughout North America.
