Minnesota, MCR factory: Breaks necks to earn money

An undercover PETA investigation into Moulton Chinchilla Ranch (MCR), a huge chinchilla breeding factory in Chatfield, Minnesota that had approximately 1,000 chinchillas confined in wire-mesh floor cages in a shed that stank of ammonia, found that these exotic animals were denied not only everything that is natural and important to them but also the most basic needs, such as effective veterinary care for chronic infections and severe, life-threatening injuries that caused suffering and even death…

Based on PETA’s evidence, law enforcement agents conducted a raid on MCR and launched a criminal investigation.

Without escape

Chinchillas are active and curious animals, who love to run, jump and climb (activities that are extremely important to their physical and psychological health), but at MCR, they remained confined in small desolate, rusty cages with a wire mesh floor.

They had nowhere to take refuge or hide, something extremely stressful and terrifying for these nocturnal prey animals.

Charlene was not treated for this excruciatingly painful foot injury, which resulted in a bloody stump with exposed bones. The PETA investigator rescued her. He took her to emergencies, she underwent surgery and she continues to heal.

The dirty shed was crammed with cages, the walls and ceiling covered with insect debris.

There were feces piled up just outside the shed, and some even entered the shed through a door.

Many of these social animals, who in the wild live in herds of up to 100 individuals in the Andes Mountains, were locked up alone in cages. Others were so tightly packed into cages that they could barely move.

Some only had a piece of wood to sit on or chew on. No toys, no place to lie down, no environmental enrichment.

Deprived of everything that is meaningful to them, chinchillas in these stressful and inhumane conditions mutilated themselves and their cage mates, a sign of severe stress.

One young animal had its ears practically bitten off.

In October 2020, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) sent MCR a subpoena (as it has done more than 100 times since 2013) for inadequate veterinary care for two chinchillas with eye discharge, but this warning was not enough to force the breeder to help the animals (!!!)

And I mean...The USDA has been warning the operators of this concentration camp since 2013.
And that is still active?
Obviously, they know that they have nothing to fear.

If such crimes are demonstrably taking place on a farm, that farm should be closed.
Without ifs and buts!

If I ignore a red light while driving, I will be banned from driving and my driver’s license will be suspended for a certain period of time, depending on the judgment. Although I haven’t broken anyone’s neck!

But the judiciary is criminal-friendly when it comes to breeders, laboratory researchers, and other animal torturers.
That is the principle of this system: stick together

My best regards to all, Venus
