Mystery terrorists release 300 mink
“Clatsop County Sheriff’s deputies are on high alert for suspected “unknown animal rights terrorists,” … .
A criminal mischief investigation is under way.”
Lesseeeee criminal mischief in Oregon:
(1) A person commits the crime of criminal mischief in the first degree who, with intent to damage property, and having no right to do so nor reasonable ground to believe that the person has such right:
(a) Damages or destroys property of another:
(A) In an amount exceeding $1,000;
hmmm letting loose some mink…I doubt that’s an excess of $1K to the property…and nobody actually STOLE the mink AND mink are NOT a livestock animal according to the great state of Oregon
(D) Which is a livestock animal as defined in ORS 164.055 (Theft in the first degree);
(d) “Livestock animal” means a ratite, psittacine, horse, gelding, mare, filly, stallion, colt, mule, ass, jenny, bull, steer, cow, calf, goat, sheep, lamb, llama, pig or hog.
But, surprisingly, an ASS is a livestock animal. I’ll bet Special Agent Mikey wasn’t aware of that. See ya at the sale barn, Mikey. I’ll bet someone would offer $16.00 for him at least.
