It takes as many as 60 minks to make one full-length fur coat. They are bred and imprisoned in tiny cramped cages in large, dank warehouses. Although they can hear each other, they are each isolated in their tiny cage so as not to taint their fur. They never get love or touch or company. Just maddening isolation.
