Reported by activists in Italy:

"The italian ALF sent to the anti fur group AIP some documents stolen during a raid in the mink farm of Dario Vernier in Villa Santina (Udine). Together with informations about the farmer's contacts, feed suppliers, vets, tool suppliers, and other local farmers who helped him with his job, these papers provide a vivid draw the of life in a fur farm.

As they come from the personal diary of the farmer, there has recorded with the most sincerity, without being interested to show a better face, the crude reality of "old cages and drinking pipes causing the death of many animals", "mothers bitten to death", "insufficient feed supply" and other amenities....

The documents can be seen at www.campagnaaip.net."
