The wind is making them crazy.
The owner of a Danish mink farm at the centre of a controversy over nearby wind turbines has reported more casualties among his animals.
Breitbart London reported on Tuesday that the turbines have been linked to a series of miscarriages and deformities among the mink, as well as increasingly aggressive behaviour, but the farmer now says that things have got worse, with healthy pups having to be put down.
The farmer reports having to separate the mothers from their young after they became aggressive and started attacking them. This happened at the same time that the wind changed to the south, bringing the noise from the turbines directly over the farm.
He says: “The wind turned south yesterday, and the noise from the turbines came just over the farm, the females began to bite their puppies, just as I had expected.”
