Mink about it!

Here?s a good question that someone her might be able to answer.

 

The brook that runs through Woolston Linear Park runs right by my office window and I?ve often observed a couple of wild mink running about but they?ve bred and now there are five of the little beggars.

 

From what I?ve heard, these animals are out and out killers and could rapidly decimate the local wildlife. I?ve already seen the parents with big fish, eels and even a full size rat and it wouldn?t surprise me to find out they?ve had all this years ducklings.

 

My question is; are they classed as vermin and should I report their existence to the none-existent park wardens? :roll:

Given the rising cost of heating and winter on its way, the fur coat option seems a good one.

 

PS Seems as though there is a money making opportunity available to you Bill..........but you might get some hate mail:

Seems there's more money to be made selling books and videos on the subject. ?19 just for a book or ?25 for a video. :shock:

 

Clearly I'm not going to be doing this but the question remains who does it get reported to?
