In his weekly report, New Ulm DNR Conservation Officer Thor Nelson says a live mink was found in the outhouse tank of some duck-hunting cabin owners that he visited.

Nelson stated, “[The cabin owners] were able to place a board into the tank to make a ramp for the mink. It escaped with no further drama. The owners were happy to have looked before taking a seat!”

The mink is the most common water mammal predator in Minnesota.  Mink are found in nearly every wetland, lake, and creek in the state, even those in cities.  And now apparently, be sure to check out your cabin’s outhouses.
