Real mink fake eyelashes

Nova Scotia helps meet demand for mink eyelashes.

Mink eyelashes get attention because they’re unusual, said Mr. McGraw.

“But in reality very few people actually wear such overtly extravagant products of cruelty. Fur is continuing to fall out of favour.”

But new mink ranches are being built in Nova Scotia.

“I don’t understand . . . why the (Nova Scotia) Department of Agriculture is suddenly so hot on mink ranching . . . or fur ranching in general. They’re really pushing this,” Lee Keating, who lives near a mink ranch under construction in Shelburne County, said Friday.

A new mink ranch is also planned for Carleton, Yarmouth County, while a new mink operation was built in the Ashmore area of Digby County not long ago.

PETA admits it has little information on the Canadian fur farming industry.
