Mysterious & Marvelous Mammals:  Minnesota Mink

It’s most widely known as a status symbol when its skin is fashioned into luxury garments.

But there’s much more to a Mink than a fur coat. It’s a fascinating member of the Weasel Family — as graceful in water as an Otter, as feisty on land as a Wolverine, and as pungent under stress as a Skunk. We follow a mother Mink as she hunts, mates and rears a family near lovely Lake Superior.
