 Hollywood mogul and co-creator of The Simpsons, Sam Simon, has bought a chinchilla farm in Southern California as part of a drive by animal rights activists to close the breeding facility.

In what all parties described as a “win-win” deal, 90-year-old owner Lurlie Adams was able to offload the farm she did not want any more to Simon for $50,000. And the 425 chinchillas were moved to much larger cages while awaiting adoption.

The San Diego Humane Society also received a $100,000 donation from Simon to care for the furry animals, which will be offered to new homes at a cost of $25 each.

Activist group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which helped broker Tuesday’s sale behind the scenes, hailed the closure of one of California’s largest breeders of chinchillas.
