One less rather large mink

December 29, 2014 Nature, Trapping

A mink in the trap this morning.  Found it out of the water, with the traps chain looped about the stake several times.  Larger than the first one.

Did it struggle out on its own?  Or were its mates pulling on it?

That’s 3 muskrat, 2 mink and 1 unknown to date.
