- Authorities in Stearns County are searching for the person or persons responsible for releasing more than 30,000 mink from a mink farm in Eden Lake Township overnight Sunday. Between 30,000 and 40,000 mink were released with an estimated value of $750,000.

Gudmonson says once the vandals were on the property they took apart sections of the exterior fence that surrounds the barns and released all the mink from their cages.

Those who see mink in the area are not encouraged to approach the animals but to call Lang Farms at 320-453-4750.

Because the mink were domesticated they are not expected to survive in the wild, though some mink may survive initially and may be loose in the area, said the sheriff's report. Lang Farms, which raises mink for pelts, asked that residents call the farm so the animals can be recaptured by experienced mink handlers.

The vandalism was not discovered until Monday morning.

Anyone with information about the burglary is asked to contact the Stearns County Sheriff's Office at 320-251-4240 or Tri-County Crimestoppers at 1-800-255-1301 for a possible reward.
