Baby Mink

In the Fall and throughout the winter we observed a large black Mink using the wharf in front of our house. It would swim out and back to the wharf, and had even made trails though the ice in the winter. Today, we found out why - a baby Mink took its first tentative steps on dry land. I noticed it first frolicking on the wharf and went down to see what it was. It was playing with a Lobster Claw elastic. I figured it was hungry and went back to the house and got some Cod. The Baby Mink loved that!! I went and got a few more pieces and captured this image of him/her: Sleeping after eating Cod:
