We simply unleash wave after wave of Chinese needle snakes.

They'll wipe out the minks.

But aren't the snakes even worse?

Yes, but we're prepared for that.

We've lined up a fabulous type of gorilla that thrives on snake meat.

Then we're stuck with gorillas!

No, that's the beautiful part.

When wintertime rolls around, the gorillas simply freeze to death.

Haha, As an Australian this gives me a strong sense of deja vu.

For those who may not know, European settlers introduced rabbits for hunting, but they spread quicker than they could hunt so they introduced foxes now over 150 years later both rabbits and foxes are wreaking havok to our environment.

And they didn't learn their lesson so similar thing when they introduced sugar cane, they brought cane beetles with them so later introduced cane toads to eat the beetles so now we have plague proportions of cane toads because all the native animals die when they eat them.

Homo sapiens are an invasive species, worse than any parasite. Parasites don't usually try to kill their host, because that would be self detrimental. We have powerful brains with self awareness, yet we choose destruction over sustainability.

Many parasites do. It depends on the parasite and the host


drengr84 t1_iwlkt97 wrote

Parasites that are able to move to another host may kill their host. Parasites that rely 100% on one host for survival tend to avoid killing it.

In my bad analogy, humans don't have a secondary host to jump to.

Bart accidentally kills a mother bird with Nelson's BB gun, and tries his best to raise the mother's eggs on his own. But when the hatchlings turn out to be a pair of destructive lizards that harvest nests for their own survival, the town's bird population is placed at great risk.

I the uk 6,000 mink were released in 1998, with a further 2,000 a few months later. Two thousand were immediately round up but another two thousand were either run over by cars, shot or starved. The remainder killed people’s pets and chickens, birds in sanctuaries. They also killed many wild birds and animals.

This type of animal rights activism is highly irresponsible and does not do their cause any good.



Nathund t1_iwlbzkn wrote

I mean... no not at all.

Sure it's disastrous for the animal being farmed (because they die and then get skinned), but it doesn't really affect the surrounding area.

If, by any chance, the person that did it thought they were standing up for animal rights, they actually just committed something akin to an act of terrorism against the local environment that will have consequences for decades. Wildlife in that region will be devastated.

Edit: To be clear, I believe that mink farms are abhorrent and should banned. But unleashing tens of thousands of predators into the local ecosystem is quite terrible.


hesh582 t1_iwmlxfh wrote

This probably isn't that true, as much as the news is pushing this hysteria.

They're domesticated animals. Weasels learn to hunt by watching their parents. These animals have never seen anything but a cage. They might cause some damage, but I don't think it's going to be that much. Fur mink are not wild animals and are not going to be effective hunters. Especially since we're going straight into winter, and they won't have time to learn.

Most of them will be dead in a couple weeks :-/


Chrisboy265 t1_iwk527o wrote

I think the people who did this are idiots, but terrorism? Unless they did this with the sole intent to destroy the ecosystem, I think calling it terrorism is a stretch. Idiocy is more fitting.


a_phantom_limb t1_iwk63x6 wrote

Is it loaded language? Sure. Is it hyperbolic? In terms of impact, I honestly don't think so. If one is advocating on behalf of an ecosystem, as is sometimes the case both rhetorically and legally, some human terms are going to be applied. No one literally wages war against the environment and no one can literally terrorize a habitat, but the end result is equivalent: human-caused carnage endured by organisms that can't defend themselves from people's actions.

Still, your objection is valid and I'll try to rephrase it.


CleverNomDePlume t1_iwhzh9e wrote

Say goodbye to songbirds and any bird that nests in the area.

There are bans to weasels as pets, in many areas, because they are so destructive to non native environments. Even one getting loose can reign havoc. This is definitely enough to maintain a breeding popatuon. I hope that they are at least a native type to the area.

You'd think that a facility that had so many of them would need some security to make sure things like this wouldn't happen, since the consequences can be so severe environmentally.

Swarbie8D t1_iwki3ij wrote

I mean, essentially yeah. I guess kangaroos and emus are too intimidating compared to the usual small game they hunted. Our troubles on the mainland (Tasmania had a rabbit problem first) stems from just 24 rabbits that were released. For a while they were kept under control by native predators but natural selection meant that they got hardier, until we had a population explosion. In the 1950s we deliberately spread a rabbit-killing virus, which worked for a bit, but they’ve adapted partial immunity to that now.

I agree with you. The risk of them getting loose and the issues that will follow are so large that whatever tax dollars they brought in from the business are wiped out. And that's keeping the issue of animal welfare to the side and just looking at a cold cost breakdown.


Pygmyponymontana t1_iwhv0tf wrote

So some PETA nit wit wit decided to save the minks by releasing them. Good job, minks are carnivores who will eat whatever animal, bird, or fish that they can catch, including pets. So instead of saving animal lives, they effectively have unleashed little killing machines in that area.

Oh, did I mention that they are also cannibals. Great job dumbass.

Edit to say I have no information saying that PETA is involved in this. This has happened multiple times in multiple countries, always with the same result.

An older, grizzled mink farmer draped in even more mink fur apparel stands some way back looks into the distance, sure not to look at the hypnotic sheet of tangled, squiggling minks.

hesh582 t1_iwmnwiu wrote

I think it's going to be a lot less interesting than people think.

They're domesticated animals, bred for docility for a couple centuries. They never learned to hunt as pups. They've never seen anything but a cage. They've never eaten live prey. They're small animals with no experience dealing with predators. They're all starting in a small area that can't support even a fraction of them. It's almost winter. They're incredibly high metabolism animals that must eat constantly to survive.

Also... one thing to note. Mink farms are continually leaking mink into the surrounding ecosystem. Always and forever. It probably actually hurts the local mink population (these are native to the area) in the long run by introducing subpar domesticate traits into the wild population.

There will be a brief and localized surge in predation, then the overwhelming majority will starve to death and the mink population will rapidly return to where it was before, with worse genetics. In a couple years there may actually be fewer mink than there were before.


333H_E t1_iwn6aex wrote

I'd argue the docility part. They're hardwired little killing machines, unlike ferrets for example. I do enjoy multiple perspectives on the outcome though. It's all guesswork at this point so it'll be interesting to see how it all pans out. Of course whatever the humans do will be a variable in the equation too.

Then they just leave them with open head wounds since taking care of them would cut from profits. We had one not far from us and an employee snuck out videos. So horrible.
