Take Action Today! Shut Down Animal Exhibiting at Dakota County Fur Farm
For years, Fur-Ever Wild in Eureka Township, Minnesota has operated as a petting zoo and fur farm, with the owners breeding animals, exhibiting them for a fee, and then slaughtering them for their fur (according to previous statements by the business).
A court ruling last year found that Fur-Ever Wild’s petting zoo operation violated local ordinances, and the animal exhibition part of the business was shut down. So we were surprised to learn that Fur-Ever Wild is now advertising “volunteer” positions, which require a fee, to hold and feed animals. It seems the new “volunteer” program is an attempt to sidestep the law and continue profiting by selling contact with the animals in addition to their fur.
Minnesota residents, we need your help to urge the Dakota County Sheriff, Dakota County Attorney, and Eureka Township Board to uphold the law and shut down this activity. Fill out the Animal Legal Defense Fund form to tell officials to shut it down!
