Vegan streaker jailed for freeing mink
Wednesday 09 June 2010
An animal rights activist known as the vegan streaker has been jailed
for 265 days (180 suspended) and given 240 hours of community service for
releasing 2,500 mink from a fur farm in Zeeland in 2009.
Janssen, 24, admitted releasing the animals. Most were caught soon
afterwards but 50 died and around 100 were never caught.
21-year-old woman was found not guilty of the same charges.
farm owner has submitted a €450,00 damages claim against Jansen for lost
income because of stress caused to the animals and the damage to their pelts
while they were free, the Telegraaf said.
Janssen got his nickname
after streaking through a television show where a Paul de Leeuw programme
was being recorded.
