Yesterday I came home to a big surprise in my back porch. I had a little baby Mink visit me and I have to say he was damn cute. I believe he is living under my porch and I hope his parents are still alive.
He/She was very interested in me. he came up not even a foot away and stood up to look at me. I had to keep my 2 dogs at bay - but they are 4 pounds each and could not hurt a fly.
I am worried about if he is warm enough and hoping he has parents. There are some big raccoons and possums near by. I am getting ahold of a lady who runs an animal rehabilitation farm near by for info. My cousin has taken ducklings and birds there (She is always eager to help).
I have never seen a Mink before and they are known for living around water. I am 20 mins from the lake and I know why he is here. This pisses me off more than anything...
They put in a new freeway and wrecked an entire forest and creek to do it. We have been seeing increases of beavers, deer, and now minks coming down into the inner city to find new homes. I will never use this express unless I am not driving.
I am going to try and get a picture of my little mink friend today. I am fine with him living under the porch if he has parents with him. I just hope they don't try to get in and share the house
They are predators and my bird would not be happy!!!!
