"Media has reported an ALF action at a mink farm at Villa del Conte (Padova) on the night of November the 12th. The farmer was alarmed by the dogs' barking, when he ran to the sheds he discovered mink running all over the place. The liberators had left graffiti: 'from the cages to freedom-ALF'.

Four people were stopped by the carabinieri close to the village, and in their car was found cutting tools. After being in custody for the night they are now free.

In the farm are imprisoned 8000 mink and this action gave freedom to 2500 of them."
