The Animal Liberation Front extremist who thought it was so heroic to release minks recently from the Kaysville farm apparently didn't think through the consequences.

While many minks were recovered shortly after being released, many of them are still loose. I know, because I found one of them in my window well this evening. Many of my neighbors have spotted minks in their yards.

Did this person ever stop to think that a mink raised on a farm isn't very well-equipped to survive on its own? Who knows what fate other minks have suffered or will suffer.

I may or may not agree with the ethics of raising minks for furs, but to condemn an animal to death by thirst and starvation does not speak well to the ALF's supposed superior regard for animal life.
