Extremists Claim Responsibility For Attack On Gifford Mink Ranch
SPOKANE, Wash. -- A group of Animal Rights Extremists has claimed responsibility for an attack on a Gifford ranch early Wednesday, destroying some ranch property and freeing more than 1,000 mink from their cages.
The attack happened early Wednesday morning at Miller's Mink Ranch, located on Addy Gifford Road, according to the "North American Animal Liberation Press Office."
The persons involved, identifying themselves only as "Unnamed Activists," claimed to have opened three-quarters of the cages to set the mink free and destroyed breeding information cards.
