I wonder what the average difference in quality of life is for the mink in this situation.

A mink runs past dead animals on a road in Hiliodendro, near the northern Greek city of Kastoria, on Monday, Aug. 30. 2010. More than 50,000 mink were set loose in the area on Friday and Saturday, after raids by suspected animal rights activists on two fur farms. Greece's The National Fur Breeders' Association said most of the released animals are likely to die, adding that the cost to the farm owners could pass 1 million Euros ($1.27 million) despite an effort to recover the animals.
