"---For Immediate Release - August 26th, 2009---

The Fur Farm Intelligence Unit is taking responsibility for the confiscation of the list of 2009 Canada Mink Breeder's Association Annual Meeting attendees from fur industry files at an unnamed location.

Approximately 270 mink farms remain in the United States, many more in Canada. Towards the goal of exposing this industry in full, from farm addresses to feed supplier locations, the Fur Farm Intelligence Unit is making the following list public. Herein is the list of registered guests of the 2009 Canada Mink Breeders Association Annual Meeting, held this year in Madison, WI (U.S.A.), on August 30th, 31st, and September 1st. All individuals listed are staying at the Hilton Madison Monona Terrace (9 East Wilson Street, Madison, WI. (608) 255-5100). This is the first CMBA annual meeting held outside of Canada. This conference brings together not just Canadian farmers, but many from the U.S.

Most importantly, we bring the exact nights these individuals, many of them mink farmers, will not be home.
