Another Dead Fur Farmer (Oregon, USA)

Marlene and Max Ruef raised 7 children on their mink farm in Mt. Angel, Oregon.

The Ruef family have been in the mink killing business since the 1960’s. As the operators of the largest fur farms in Oregon, they have killed tens of thousands of mink throughout their blood-soaked careers.

Her son Joe Ruef testified against an Oregon state bill to ban mink farming. He called coronavirus a non-event.

Marlene lived to see a four-alarm fire destroy a shed at her mink prison. The fire in October 2022 caused hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages.

May this industry die a simultaneous death with these savages.
