Righteous guardians of animal welfare have struck again:
Police say break-ins at two fur farms have set more than 50,000 minks on the loose in northern Greece.
Now the 50,000 minks can live happily ever after. Or maybe not:
The National Fur Breeders’ Association says most of the released animals are likely to die in the late-August heat. It says the cost to the farm owners could pass euro1 million ($1.27 million).
No group has claimed responsibility for the incident. But an animal rights group, calling itself the “Hawks of Reprisal,” said it was responsible for a similar break-in last year.
The cost doesn’t matter. The havoc wrecked by a massive army of desperate, disoriented animals doesn’t matter. The fact that the animals will die senselessly and miserably doesn’t matter. Moonbats giving themselves an excuse to wallow in sanctimony: that’s what matters.
