LCA'S UNDERCOVER INVESTIGATION OF MILLBANK FUR FARM

LEADS TO 14 COUNTS OF ANIMAL CRUELTY

 

May 11, 2018LCA released video and photo evidence from an undercover investigation, documenting disturbing accounts of animal neglect at Millbank Fur Farm Ltd. in Ontario, Canada. The investigation, which began in 2017 and spanned the course of a year,  is the first in-depth undercover probe of a fur farm that produces pelts for the Canadian fur industry.  

In Canada, more than three million animals are killed annually for their fur.

With the evidence collected, LCA submitted a complaint to the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (OSPCA) requesting further investigation. In a public statement released 5/11/18, the OSPCA announced an Ontario mink farm was charged with 14 counts of animal cruelty. In their statement about the charges, the OSPCA spokesperson said, “no one is exempt from the law.”

Warning: Video contains graphic footage taken at Millbank Fur Farm. 

The footage captured in LCA’s investigation reveals numerous incidents of animal suffering and neglect among the 40,000 mink that live, and die, at Millbank Fur Farm annually.

In addition to clear incidents of animal suffering, the evidence collected in the investigation shows animals with open, untreated wounds and infections, and documents a lack of adequate and sanitary mink shelters, and food. During the course of the investigation, LCA’s investigator never saw a veterinarian on site

As is the case with many industries that exploit animals, there is little oversight and few laws that protect animals on fur farms.
