Generally animal rights activists are people who have anthropomorphized animals to the point where they act as though they are or might as well be human beings. It's an extremely illogical, emotional position and generally wrong.
Animals are not people. The great apes can come the closest, but behaving as though they are liberating these mink basically just signed their death warrants because the mink are not people and are not habitutated to the wild they now find themselves in and even if they were, that many released all at once drastically overloaded the local ecosystem so they'd starve.

Ughh animal rights activists.....
Why doesn't somebody release THEM into the wild with no food and supplies. Say the Brazilian rainforest or Antarctica.

Idiots this happened near me around ten years back it destroyed the local eco system and cost hundreds of thousands to put right.
I don't agree with fur farming but they have to realise what they do can destroy the local eco system.
