HOYTSVILLE -- Authorities in Utah are trying to determine who broke into a farm and let 20 mink run free.
Summit County Sheriff's Sgt. Ronald Bridge says the incident occurred in the early morning of Sept. 13 in the small town of Hoytsville, Utah.
Bridge says 15 of the mink were found soon after and the owner tells investigators he'll likely be able to find the five others too.
No one was hurt and no property damaged, but it is considered a burglary. Bridge says they have no suspects, but acknowledged that they are looking into groups such as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and Animal Liberation Front.
Representatives from those two groups were not immediately available for comment.
Fur Commission USA says Utah is one of the top-producing fur farming states.
