Moffat County mink farm raided, future unclear

A controversial mink farm in Moffat County may be out of business because an unidentified person or group released the animals from their cages Thursday. The Moffat County Sheriff's Department currently is investigating the issue, so it couldn’t release many details, but it was certain that this was an intentional act, Cpl. Alec Brown said. “We know that some mink were purposefully released,” Brown said.
