Undercover Images of Germany's Worst Mink Farm

At this link you see recent undercover footage and images of Germany's most notorious mink farm at Bielefeld. The owner, one Alfons Grosser (President of the German Fur animal breeder's society), has repeatedly flouted the new regulations -- for one, requiring more space for each animal (up to 10 times more than provided at this facility). Authorities had also issued a ban on stabling animals in this way to this owner, which he also flouted. The animals are caged much like plants in a hothouse, with rows upon rows in a closed storage building, with minimal temperature control/air conditioning -- causing many animals to die of heat exhaustion. Authorities are investigating.
