Saw one years ago, and now here’s another (I wasn’t fast enough to take a picture of my own), and it makes perfect sense that we have minks (I suspect there’s a family living under our deck). We have endless rabbits, and minks like to eat rabbits. We have everything minks like: snakes, birds, mice.

    they are killing machines those little weasels, found a wounded fisher one overcast and snowy night in the unplowed road was really a remarkable even magic critter its coat glowed in the streetlights

    dmf: Spent some time trying to figure out whether it’s a weasel. But weasels are smaller than the animal I saw.

  3. dmf Says:

    they are all in the same family, minks generally like waterfront property but they are widespread

  4. Margaret Soltan Says:

    I’ve always figured we’ve got minks because Rock Creek is very close by.

  5. dmf Says:

    makes sense, might be a tween kit or so around too if they have nested.
