Mink on the run again.

STOCKHOLM: About 2,000 mink were set free by saboteurs from a fur farm in northern Sweden overnight.

No arrests were made, but suspicion fell on animal-rights activists. About 1,000 minks were set free earlier this month from the farm in Sundsvall, 210 miles north of Stockholm, by vandals who scrawled "DBF" - the Swedish acronym for Animal Liberation Front.

Animal-rights groups also this month set free some 8,000 minks from a farm in Britain and another 4,000 were released from their cages in Finland.
