Bulgaria: Bulgaria's Stara Zagora Citizens Protest Against Minks Farm Construction Photo: www.furcommission.com

Citizens of the Bulgarian city of Stara Zagora have started a protest against the planned construction of a farm for raising minks for their fur.

Close to 17,000 people have already signed the online petition opposing the project to be built in the nearby village of Madzherito, as reported by bTV.

The Danish investors have stated that they will be raising 400,000 small carnivorous mammals. The proper ones will be selected for reproduction purposes and the rest will be killed in gas chambers and their skins will be transported to Poland to be used in the fashion industry. The dead bodies of the animals will be burned out.

Animal rights activists, however, have stated that they will not be tolerating this ''barbarian act''. They also refused to accept the reasoning that the dead bodies of the animals will not be polluting the environment as they will be disposed of in an incineration furnace facility.

Typical for the western countries to export their dirty work to the East, they will be headlining in the western press of how barbaric the east is, how they in the east are continuing things outlawed by western morals! Similiar to fracking operations that can be carried out in their home nations they export to degrade the territories of Poland, Romania and soon to be Ukraine no doubt, when there is plenty of territory in the US that can be fracked. However on the doorsteps of the fracking companies executives, there is strong protest, protests that aren't ignored as in countries open for exploitation in the east
