The mink Mustela vison ) and other fur bearing animals attracted trappers, traders, and settlers to Alaska from around the world. Some of the most valuable furbearers belong to the Mustelidae or weasel family, which includes the mink. Other members of this family in Alaska include weasels, marten, wolverine, river (land) otter, and sea otter. Mink are found in every part of the state with the exceptions of Kodiak Island, Aleutian Islands, the offshore islands of the Bering Sea, and most of the Arctic Slope. General description: A mink's fur is in prime condition when guard hairs are thickest. Mink are then a chocolate brown with some irregular white patches on the chin, throat, and belly. White patches are usually larger on females and often occur on the abdomen in the area of the mammary glands. Several albino mink have been reported from Alaska. Underfur is usually thick and wavy, not longer than an inch. It is dark gray to light brown in color with some suggestion of light and dark bands. The tail is one third to one fourth of the body length with slightly longer guard hairs than the body. Adult males range in total length from 19 to 29 inches (48-74 cm). They may weigh from three to almost five pounds (1.4-2.3 kg). Females are somewhat smaller than males.

    By Rob Norman
    Illustrated by Lizabeth West
    Ah, the elusive mink! A weasel-like carnivore about the size of a house cat and semi-aquatic in habit, this creature is hard to find. It has been sought after for centuries and almost hunted to extinction for its fine fur.
    Generally, mink are glossy, dark chocolate brown in appearance with a slender body up to 2 feet long, short legs and a 7- to 8-inch bushy tail. It has small, rounded ears and (in Florida) a white chin. Mink have 34 teeth, with four prominent canine teeth to help kill prey. Mink have rather long and supple bodies with relatively short legs. There are five toes on each partially webbed foot.
    Wild mink are fierce, solitary carnivores. Their average life span in the wild is less than three years. The mink is native only to North America. There are a number of subspecies varying in size, fur quality and appearance in various geographical locations.
    In Florida the mink is found in coastal habitats along the Gulf Coast south to Hernando County and along the Atlantic Coast south to Matanzas Inlet. The Everglades Mink is found in shallow freshwater marshes of the Everglades and Big Cypress Swamp.

    Wildlife Control Products Mink General Biology, Reproduction, and Behavior Mink are polygamous and males may fight ferociously for mates during the breeding season, which occurs from late January to late March. Gestation varies from 40 to 75 days with an average of 51 days. Like most other members of the weasel family, mink exhibit delayed implantation; the embryos do not implant and begin completing their development until approximately 30 days before birth. The single annual litter of about 3 to 6 young is born in late April or early May and their eyes open at about 3 weeks of age. The young are born in a den which may be a bank burrow, a muskrat house, a hole under a log, or a rock crevice. The mink family stays together until late summer when the young disperse. Mink become sexually mature at about 10 months of age.
    Damage and Damage Identification Mink may occasionally kill domestic poultry around farms. They typically kill their prey by biting them through the skull or neck. Closely spaced pairs of canine tooth marks are a sign of a mink kill. Mink will attack animals up to the size of a chicken, duck, rabbit, or muskrat. While eating muskrats, a mink will often make an opening in the back or side of the neck and skin the animal by pulling the head through the hole as it feeds. Like some other members of the weasel family, mink occasionally exhibit “surplus killing” behavior (killing much more than they can possibly eat) when presented with an abundance of food, such as in a poultry house full of chickens. Mink may place many dead chickens neatly in a pile. Mink can eat significant numbers of upland nesting waterfowl or game bird young, particularly in areas where nesting habitat is limited.

    About Us Field Projects How You Can Help Publications ... Mink Mink
    © Cal. Academy of Sciences/Gerald and Buff Corsi The mink ( Mustela vison ) is a member of the weasel family, which also includes skunks, otters, and wolverines. They are perhaps best know for their dark brown fur, which turns white at the chin and runs to black at the tips of their tails. They have long, slender torsos atop short legs. Full-grown females are usually 17 to 21 inches long and weigh 1.25 to 1.75 pounds, while full-grown males are usually 21 to 24 inches in length and weigh 2 to 3.75 pounds. Wild minks are less abundant than they were 50 years ago. The quality of their habitat has been degraded through development, stream channelization, and the drainage of wetlands. Trapping and the fur industry have also depleted wild mink populations. An average of 115,000 wild minks were killed in traps each year between 1995 and 1998, even though the mink industry has increasingly turned to raising its animals in cages (26 million caged minks were killed each year between 1995 and 1998). Minks are nocturnal animals, active from dusk to dawn. They do not hibernate during the winter, though they do sometimes stay in their dens for a day or so during snowy or cold periods. Minks travel well on both land and water, swimming as deep as 50 feet under water on one breath and reaching surface speeds of up to 1.5 miles an hour. On land, mink walk or take low bounds of 10-24 inches, which can reach speeds of up to 7.8 miles per hour.

    Mustela vison
    This most famous of fur-bearing animals is a common resident in British Columbia. It is almost always associated with water, and is an excellent swimmer. It feeds on aquatic animals and amphibians, birds and small mammals.
    On the BC coast, where it is commonly seen, its diet is full of crabs and other marine life. It is a fierce hunter; and has been reported holding the head of a large gull underwater until it drowned.
    Mink are small, slim, and sleek. Their famous coats are glossy dark brown, often with some white on the throat, and sometimes elsewhere on the underparts. Males weigh less then two kilograms, and females about half that; it takes a lot of mink to make a coat for a human.
    The Canadian Encyclopedia reports however, that ranched mink account for over 95% of the pelts used in the fur industry.

    Scientific Name
    Mustela vison
    Description Like most members of the weasel family, the mink has a long, slender body and short legs. The tail is about two-fifths as long as the body. Adult males are longer (21-24 inches) and heavier (2-3 3/4 pounds) than adult females (16 3/4-21 inches; 1 1/4-1 3/4 pounds). Most wild mink are dark brown except for a white chin and a tail that's tipped with black. Some have one or more irregular white patches on their throats or chests. A mink's ears are short, barely extending above its fur.
    Domestic mink have been bred selectively for many generations to attain a larger size and wider variety of colors than their wild cousins. Trade names like standard, demi-buff, pearl, sapphire, and gunmetal refer to color strains ranging from jet black to pure white and bluish-gray. Domestic mink occasionally escape into the wild, but few survive. Mink are found in every county in Illinois. They're most abundant in the glacial lakes area of
    northeastern Illinois, counties bordering the lower Mississippi River, and the southern third of the state. While they still are common, wild mink are less abundant than they were 50-100 years ago because of habitat loss caused by development, stream channelization, and drainage of wetlands.
    Habitat Mink live along rivers, streams, lakes, ponds, and marshes. Shorelines with grass, brush, trees, or aquatic vegetation like cattails provide good cover and abundant prey. Abandoned burrows dug by muskrats are their favorite places to rest and raise young, but they will use cavities in brush or rock piles, logjams, and the exposed roots of trees. A den can have several entrances, and includes a nest chamber about 1 foot in diameter that is sometimes lined with grass, leaves, fur, or feathers.

    Mink as environmental indicators During the early 1970's, several domestic mink ranchers reported that their animals were sick and producing very few young. Researchers eventually tied these symptoms to high concentrations of methyl mercury. Methyl mercury is a by-product of mercury, which is found naturally at low levels in the environment, but acts like a poison in higher doses. Fish captured in the Great Lakes region and used to feed the mink were a common link among ranches with this problem. The fish had been contaminated with high levels of mercury through a process known as bio-accumulation.
    Bio-accumulation occurs when small amounts of a compound are stored and passed through the food chain, reaching higher levels with each step. For example, mercury levels found in water might be higher than normal because of pollution, but still safe by human standards. Small fish take in some of the mercury with their food and store it in their tissues. Levels found in the fish are higher than the water itself, but not enough to kill them or make them sick. A medium-sized fish eats many of the small fish during its lifetime, building a higher concentration of mercury in its system. As a large fish eats many of the medium-sized fish, it accumulates some the mercury each had stored in its tissues, building it to a yet higher level.
    While the fish showed no outward signs of sickness, the mink that ate them were particularly sensitive to mercury and developed severe symptoms. The problem stopped once the source of mercury was identified and ranchers switched to other sources of food. While unfortunate, this incident provided many valuable lessons. For example, later testing led to human health advisories which warned people to limit their consumption of fish caught in Lake Michigan. The warnings asked people to avoid eating fish altogether if they were in a high risk group (like pregnant women). People in lower risk categories were asked to eat only small amounts of large fish, especially those species prone to accumulate contaminants.

    "We condemn mink hunting as it frequently disturbs otters and otter habitats." The Otter Trust, 19 October 1983. "We are against mink hunting if it might cause disturbance to otters.... If mink do need to be controlled, trapping, so long as it is part of a co-ordinated programme of control and research, is a better method than hunting which is very inefficient." The Royal Society for Nature Conservation, 15 April 1987.

    18. Mink
    This is backed up by new research from the Vincent wildlife Trustwho have shown that otters are reducing mink numbers. According
    The American mink is a member of the weasel family (mustelidae) and a relative of stoats, otters, polecats and badgers. Mink breed once a year, with five or six kits born in early May in underground dens. Young mink are weaned at seven weeks. They are very agile climbers and swimmers and can live to be up to eight years old, but few survive beyond their second year.
    American Mink (as their name suggests) are not native to Britain but were brought here from North America in 1929 to be farmed commercially for their fur. There have probably been escapee mink in the wild since that time, but the problem was increased following WWII when the industry went into decline and farmers released their animals into the surrounding countryside. Mink were first reported to be breeding wild in Britain in 1956 on the River Teign in Devon - exactly the time that otters were being hit by the multiple effects of pollution from organochlorines, hunting, and loss of river habitat. Mink are now present on virtually every waterway across Britain. The mink has no natural predators in the UK, although the Environment Agency has confirmed that there is now anecdotal evidence to suggest that the presence of otters may actually reduce mink activity on our rivers and streams (Otters and River Habitat Management E.A 1999 - Otter Society).In December 1996, the Northumberland Wildlife Trust reported that otters were attacking and even killing mink (IOSF News No 11).

    Mink (Mustela vison) are about the size of a small house cat, but their bodies are considerably more elongate, and their legs are proportionately much shorter. Males are larger than females. Adult males average about two pounds and are from 24 to 27 inches in length. A few males may reach weights up to 4 pounds. Mature females are from 17 to 21 inches long and usually weigh about 1 1/2 to two pounds. In both sexes, the well-furred tail comprises about one-third of the animal's body length.
