On the night of September 12, fire destroyed an office and warehouse at a mink farm in Rio San Martino (Scorzé). No animals were harmed. The farmer estimated damages at 300,000 Euros.
A van at the farm was set on fire in July 2017, and thousands of mink were freed from cages at the farm in February 2016.
[Note: The mink farm in Rio San Martino, Italy has suffered an arson attack and animal releases in recent years. Not surprisingly, the farmer did not like to leave the farm unattended. Last Wednesday, one hour after he left for dinner he received a phone call that his farm was on fire. (No animals were harmed.)]
