Observer: Faith Berkland

Observation Date: 4/20/24

Observation Time: 9:45 a.m.

Observation Location: 302 Mansfield St., Sharon

Common Name: Mink

Scientific Name: Neovison vison

Comments: Mink are semi-aquatic. They eat crayfish, small frogs and fish, along with small mammals such as shrews, rabbits, mice, and muskrats. They also prey on ducks and other water fowl.

The mink I saw ran across my back yard. I am surrounded by drainage brooks and natural waterways. Sorry, no photo.
