Shut down ALF, not mink farms

MINK from farms are undoubtedly endangering our wildlife -- but are they in the wild because they escaped (as a recent article stated), or because idiots like those who belong to the Irish Animal Liberation Front (ALF) deliberately released them into the wild?

For example, the ALF claimed responsibility for releasing 500 mink into the wild during a raid on a mink farm in Vicarstown, Laois, in March 2008.

Perhaps, in the interests of protecting wildlife, it would be better to close down the militant animal-rights groups, rather than the mink farms.
