Or animal terrorists as I like to call them, have done it again.
4000 mink were set free the 26th of this month.
Actually it was 8000 but "only" 4000 got out into the wild...
What the heck is wrong with people who do this sort of thing?
Okay, so they don't like the furfarmers, but they only hurt one furfarmer, and they kill thousands of animals in the process - how can this help in any way?
It makes me SO mad when people do this, and then they have the nerve to say they do it for the animals...
The mink is not native to Denmark, this means that a lot of our native animals are in trouble when they set them loose. It's mostly birds, lizards and amfibians (sp?) the mink will prey on, but other carnivors related to the mink are at risk too. They simply can't compete with the mink.
Other that this, most of the mink will die. They will get killed by trafic, the lucky ones will get caught again (by either hunters or furfarmers), some will die of starwation, and a small persent will survive and kill of our native animals.
What the heck gives these people the right to do this to us?
Don't they think at all?
We have SO many problems with invasive species, and it's all over the media, so you need to be living in a cage if you don't know this is a VERY bad thing...
I don't want the native animals to die out
I wan't my kids to be able to see the animals I can go out and find now... I don't want a lot of south and nort american animals
You would think they would learn at some point. Just look at Australia and the rabbit problem, or the whole killerbee problem... But noooo - lets set some animals free, and don't care what it's going to do to the nature...
