COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) -- Authorities and residents in western Denmark on Monday were chasing hundreds of minks that escaped from a farm in what police suspected was an overnight raid by animal rights activists.

About 5,000 animals were freed from the farm near Asp, 200 miles northwest of Copenhagen, police said.

Investigators said animal rights activists were likely to blame, but no suspects had been identified.
