Why should minks from mink farms not be let out?

Do minks bite?
Any animal with teeth has the capability of biting. Wild mink need their teeth for chewing through small food prey items and have a tremendous amount of jaw strength. This is true of both wild mink and farm raised mink. There is however a tremendous amount of difference between the two. Farm raised mink have been domesticated through many generations of farming them for their fur. In areas where they are legal, they are popular as pets. Mink love to bite. They use biting as a means of communicating with each other and their people. Raised as pets, it is very important to obtain them at a young age between 5 and 6 weeks so they can be trained to not bite as hard as they are ABLE to. They do not always bite with the intention of inflicting harm on its human, they just don't understand how fragile we are compared to other mink that are very thick skinned with thick fur coats. The most important factor in bite training is to treat the mink as you want him to treat you. NEVER ever hit your mink. As babies they will test everything with their mouths and biting. No matter how hard they bite you must be gentle in your actions and your tone of voice. Never grab or scruff the mink as they will feel cornered. Rule of thumb is that whatever you give, prepare for the mink to give it back 10 fold. anyone planning on having a mink as a pet must be prepared to take some very strong bites and respond with gentleness and love. If you "get it right", you will be rewarded with a loving, entertaining and gentle animal. I highly recommend using a stuffed toy if you wish to rough play with your mink and never let them think they can bite human skin as hard as they can bite a toy. Their jaws are capable of breaking bone, again, not that they mean to, but because they just don't understand how fragile we are. Mink are highly intelligent and inquisitive animals. They move swiftly naturally and most people interpret this as aggression, that their swift movements mean they are intent on attacking.

Are puppy farms legal?
They should not be legal and if found the people should be put in prison and the dogs spayed or neutered and given to good homes. If the female is pregnant then they should let the puppies come into the world and spay or neuter them when they are old enough to have it done and find them good and loving homes. The people who did this should never be allowed to own any pet again in their lifetime.

How are chickens taken care of on farms?
It depends on the farm. Some farms keep the animals in very small cages and feed them tonnes of food every day. This makes them big and fat so that they fetch a better price in the supermarkets. Other, free range farms let the chickens have loads of space outside in fields, but these chickens tend to be a lot smaller.
