Dad Saw a Mink

Mink at Totem Park

Today dad saw a mink and I got to see it, that was cool, and Connor too. We found tracks and it went in holes and hide under rocks, and it goes in holes to trick other things that eats minks. The mink sit and ran to the tree, and sitted again and ran, sit, and sit, and sit, and it sitted, and it sitted, and it sitted. We were headed on our way home and we got to see it by the river.


  1. Sound like mink sit around a lot. It must have been fun to see. Do you think you could find a mink for me when I come up to visit?

  2. Maybe if dad finds one and I could tell you and you could come over and dad might be able to take a picture of it and you might be able to see it run away to its holes and under the trees. And you might be able to see its tracks, and if you see it again can you please tell us.

  3. […] On a recent walk to Totem Park, I happened to spot a Mink (Neovison vison) moving around on the cobbles at the edge Indian River where it runs through the upper portion of the estuary. Connor and Rowan were with me, but had taken the path through the woods rather than along the estuary, so I called them over to come look. Fortunately it stayed out in the open long enough for them to get a good look (what Rowan had to say about it). […]
