today i learned that the netherlands is one of the world’s largest producers of mink. i drive around a lot, or have done, and i’ve never noticed any mink farms… what does a mink farm look like?
i have just been reading about the european mink, and learned that it’s endangered. it’s also been threatened by farmed (american?) minks being released by animal rights activists in europe. they try to help, but they’re releasing the wrong animal into the wrong environment. or the right animal into the wrong environment. oops. you’ve got to feel pretty stupid about worsening the problem like that.
anyway. i go back to work now. i’m sure it’s obvious, but i haven’t fully researched. my readings today have consisted of a brief article in the dutch news, followed by a quick reading on wikipedia. i’m busy… time to finish up the first project of the morning, so i can get on to the much more interesting but lower priority 2nd project.
