40,000 Animals Are Neglected, Then Slaughtered for Fur at This Farm

Millbank Fur Farm — the Ontario, Canada firm that is responsible for supplying pelts to the notoriously cruel fur industry — has just been charged with 14 counts of animal cruelty. The charges, ranging from medical neglect to causing undue distress to the animals in their care come after a recent exposé shined a light on the horrible conditions their minks endure.
Animal rights activists also found several cases of animals with “open, untreated wounds and infections, and documents a lack of adequate and sanitary mink shelters and food.”
What’s even more shocking is the fact that while undercover, activists didn’t see a single veterinarian. Not one single vet at a farm that houses around 40,000 minks.
After the findings came to light, the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals took action by filing the charges.
It seems like the farm, which clearly has no issue with murdering animals just for their fur, also has no qualms about letting their animals suffer during their short lives.
Ontario officials should have the proof they need to realize this farm is not only raising, but abusing animals. Millbank Fur Farm needs to be shut down.
Please sign the petition and ask the government of Ontario to close Millbank Fur Farm.
