Yikes ... I Hope He Was Fully Insured ...


Recommended Posts

Interesting, why were they runiing electric heaters for mink pelts. Does any body know if a frozen pelt gets destroyed because of the frezzing. I would think it would preserve it.

Just guessing:


Extreme temperature changes for prolonged periods cause furs to absorb or lose moisture.


When pelts go through several freeze-thaw cycles they probably become brittle and lose their fur. Thus the electric heaters may have been used, not to keep the fur warm but to prevent freezing and thawing.


Even if the temperature is maintained at a few degrees above freezing, the heaters are doing their job.
