On January 17, approximately 1,500 mink were freed from cages at the Antoniazzi mink farm in San Cataldo di Borgoforte. According to media reports, one hundred meters of wire fencing was cut and all the cages inside seven sheds at the farm were opened.

This is the 4th liberation at this farm, most recently in November 2010.

The Antoniazzi mink farm is just one of 15 remaining in Italy.
