VAN WERT, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC and ONN) – That mink farm in western Ohio where activists allegedly freed thousands of the fur-bearing animals has closed.

The FBI and others continue investigating the incident near Van Wert from just over a month ago.

The mink had been terrorizing nearby poultry farms.

The industry group Fur Commission USA says the closure is a great loss for the local economy.
