Merenrannalta löytyi syöty linnun luu. Minkin tassujen jäljet olivat vieressä. Tässä metrin päässä on iso luminen kivi. Kiven päällä oli linnun sulkia, ja verijäljet. Minkki on vieraslaji, joka ei kuulu tänne.
Yes, of course... but no European mink or otter in your area ???
Mink from North America (Neovision vison) was brought to Fennoscandia in the 1920s, as well as to Finland, initially as a fur animal. Mink has been found to be harmful in Finland, especially in archipelago areas, where it destroys bird nests and preys on adult birds. I have often met a mink in the wild. Angry animal.
Mink are a real menace, Anne. They are a problem in UK, mainly because some less intelligent members of the Animal Rights movement decided that Mink shouldn't be kept in mink farms and raided the farms and released the mink into the wild. I'm against the farming of mink for fur, but releasing them was utterly stupid! Best wishes - - - Richard
