FURBEARERS Furbearers include all mammals harvested primarily for their pelts. In Maine, these include coyote, red and gray fox, bobcat, fisher, marten, raccoon, skunk, short- and long-tailed weasels, mink, otter, beaver, muskrat, and opossum. Although Canada lynx are an important furbearer in Canada and Alaska, their numbers in Maine are low; consequently, lynx in Maine are protected year-round. All other furbearers may be trapped during trapping season. Pelts of all furbearers, except weasel, raccoon, muskrat, skunk, and opossum must be tagged by an MDIFW agent. The annual number of pelts tagged (i.e., harvested) is one of the primary indices used in our furbearer management systems. Both furbearers and small game mammals can be taken by hunting. Hunted furbearers include: fox, coyote, bobcat, raccoon, and skunk; while hunted small game includes: snowshoe hare, New England cottontail, gray squirrel, woodchuck, porcupine, and red squirrel. 1997-98 Fur Harvest
Trapping in 1997-98 for all furbearers, except beaver, was allowed from November 2 through December 31. Maine's special fox and coyote trapping season started a week earlier this year, and ran from October 19 through November 1. The beaver season ran from December 1 through March 31 in Wildlife Management Units (WMUs) 1, 2, 3 and 5, from December 15 through February 28 in WMUs 4, 6 and 7, and from January 1 through February 28 in WMU 8. Additional sections of WMUs 2 and 4 had extended opportunity for beaver trapping this year.

Although the reasons for their decline are many and varied, people are the root cause of most of these. It follows that we also hold the key to the survival and recovery of both otters and water voles. OTTER Appearance Otters have long slender bodies with small ears, a long thick tail and webbed feet. They have mid-brown fur, often with a creamy white underside. Otters are large animals: head / body length 60-120cm, tail 40-45cm. Weight on average: 10 kg for males, 7 kg for females.

The North American mink is a mustelid (order Carnivora) that has been introduced to many countries for commercial fur production. Escapes from fur farms have resulted in large breeding populations in the wild. There are several potential problems associated with mink for native wildlife and domestic stock. For native wildlife, mink may be considered a threat as predators competitors or as vectors of disease Control and eradication programs are now being considered in order to completely remove mink from some areas or to reduce the negative impact that they may be having. Centre for Conservation Science is using a modelling approach to help determine the most effective and efficient strategy for controlling mink. References for work cited in this webpage are provided.
Description and Behaviour
The North American mink ( Mustela vison , Schreber 1777) is a member of the family Mustelidae. It is a medium-sized carnivore with an elongated body approximately 30cm long, relatively short limbs, and a tail approximately a third of the body length. Wild native American mink are uniformly dark brown but breeding in fur farms (or ranches) has resulted in a wide range of pelage colours, and consequently escaped feral mink may vary in colour from white, grey or fawn through to black. American mink are semi-aquatic, generalist predators. They are very adaptable and can exploit a wide range of foods. Generally solitary, both males and females are territorial, but a male's territory may span that of several females. In the northern hemisphere the mating season is in March, during which both sexes may mate with several partners. The female gives birth to a maximum of six kits during April and May, although a much smaller number than this are likely to survive to dispersal in late July.

(mustela vision) By Michael Olek It’s amazing how many people do not know that a healthy population of Mink exists in Western New York. Perhaps because, like our local flying squirrels, which are seldom seen, they are nocturnal. Mink are also local residents that spend most of their time near creeks, ponds, rivers and lakes. Mink are reclusive creatures that prefer to live alone. Being somewhat nomadic, they rarely take up residence in any one spot for very long. Mink spend most of their active time bounding along, not too far from a body of water, in search of food. Mink are excellent swimmers. In water, they resemble a scaled down version of their close cousin, the Otter. Creeks and ponds are a Mink's playground as well as a major food source. In water, fish, crayfish and frogs make up a large portion of a Mink’s diet. On land, Mink are as capable a hunter as the Weasel. Mink are carnivorous and will eat rodents, rabbits, birds, and insects. Because of their short legs, they are not capable of outrunning rabbits, or other faster animals. Mink mainly hunt on land by sniffing at crevices, under rocks, or scouting out hollow logs and ground dens, much like a Ferret. Once they pick up the scent of prey, they will pursue their quarry, by nose, for a short distance.

There are over 20 species of mammal in Elan, most are nocturnal and wary of man and are therefore rarely seen. Grey Squirrels are common and easy to see, they come originally from America and are larger and more adaptable than the native Red Squirrel. There are no records of reds since the 1960s. There are only occasional records of Deer on the Estate. Badgers, Otters, Polecats, Mink, Stoats and Weasels are all members of the weasel (mustelid) family. Badgers are strong burrowers and live in setts as family groups. As well as the main sett which is always in use, they may have other smaller setts in their territory which they only use occasionally. Otters occur close to the Estate and they do use our rivers, reservoirs and lakes as fishing grounds for brown trout. Polecats are uncommon outside of Wales and its bordering counties although the population is spreading. They are the wild cousins of domestic ferrets with which they will interbreed.

67. Animal Aid Campaigns : Wildlife
People who support the fur industry often claim that trapping is a tool of wildlifemanagement and conservation. The sea mink, however, was not so fortunate.
June 1999 The Fur Trade Factsheet It is an obvious fact that we no longer need to make coats, gloves or hats out of real fur because we have many other materials with which to make such things. When mountaineers climb Mount Everest they need the warmest clothes possible but they don't wear fur! So why do 50 million animals suffer and die every year... There are two simple answers to this - profits and vanity. The people who are responsible for making and selling fur coats make lots of money, and the people who wear them think that think that they make them look glamorous. This may seem daft to you and me because in reality they look stupid and cruel. As well as trying to portray a fashionable and glamorous image, the advertisements for the fur industry try to depict fur as a 'natural' product. There is, however, nothing natural about the way that fur coats are made. The fur industry goes to great lengths to hide the horrific cruelty involved in their production. They hide the agony of the wild animals caught in the leghold traps, and they hide the suffering of the animals held in captivity on the fur farms. ...just to make fur coats?

68. Animal Aid Campaigns : Wildlife
In 1992 the BBC screened a programme in its wildlife on One slot calledInvasion of the Killer mink. Its producer told the Radio
Special report: February 2001
A special report by Animal Aid director Andrew Tyler. Animal Aid has long been concerned about the growing tendency among what might be called 'top table conservationists' to scapegoat various animal species for the environmental and commercial vices of human beings. A whole range of indigenous species are under threat as a result of the burdens placed upon them by human population growth and by modern manufacturing and waste disposal regimes. Yet certain 'experts' insist on displacing the responsibility and pretending that ecological harmony can be restored through the barrel of a gun or through the use of body-crushing traps, snares and poisons. WILDLIFE UNDER PRESSURE
The main sources of pressure upon native fauna and flora can be summarised as follows: Modern Farming Systems - involving loss of hedgerow, winter sowing, prolific use of chemicals, the destruction of 'non-productive' plant life, and the generation of vast quantities of methane, slurry and silage. Birds, insects, fish and small mammals all suffer as a consequence, either in terms of reduced numbers or increased vulnerability to disease. Industrial Pollution - Some chemical, pharmaceutical and other large-scale producers are periodically fined nominal sums but they continue with their discharges into the air, land and waterways. No one's bothering to count how many animals have been killed outright, or reduced in number through loss of viable habitat, but there are sufficient pointers to indicate that this is happening on a significant scale. There is also evidence of serious disruption to the reproductive systems of several species, resulting in loss of fertility and physical malformation in offspring.

//Top Navigational Bar III (By BrotherCake @ //Permission granted/modified by to include script in archive //For this and 100's more DHTML scripts, visit Mink control programme Suffolk Wildlife Trust is encouraging landowners and managers to get involved in a mink trapping programme due to start in the spring when it will be most effective. Land alongside the Deben and Fynn rivers are being targeted, as both have endangered water vole populations in isolated pockets which need protecting if they are to survive and expand. Mink are spreading at a great rate through our rivers and having a devastating impact on our native wildlife including the water vole, which is now the fastest declining mammal in the UK. "This non-native species has escaped from fur farms and has adapted very well in our countryside. It is a very efficient hunter and its diet includes fish, birds and mammals - especially water vole," explains project co-ordinator and one of East Anglia's Otters and Rivers Project Officers, Sarah Norman. "The Trust would like to work with landowners in the above areas and organise a concerted mink trapping effort along the rivers to attempt to reduce mink numbers. We are inviting people to come forward who are interested in taking part in the trapping program - they would have to acquire some traps of their own. Trapping would go ahead during March-April - an optimal time to catch any individuals before they establish their own new territories and before females begin breeding," says Sarah.

70. Cornwall Wildlife Trust - Cornwall Otter Group
While the odd mink record is collected through otter surveys, this year we hopeto do some more detailed research. Kate Stokes, Cornwall wildlife Trust,
Extract from Wild Cornwall issue 85 - summer 2001 The aims of the Otters and Rivers Project (OARP) are: to restore the otter population; to increase knowledge of the other semi-aquatic mammals, namely the American mink, the water vole and the water shrew; and to improve wetland habitats. These aims are being pursued through a network of conservation officers and volunteers. Obviously the work has focused on the otter - which is a rare conservation success story. Following a dramatic decline, otters are now making a good comeback and Cornwall can proudly boast of a healthy, expanding population. Unfortunately, the situation is very different for the water vole: there are no known positive sites. Reedbeds are a possible last refuge for water voles but they are nationally scarce and are in fact among the rarest of habitat types in the UK. Further funding is being sought from the Pennon Group (Viridor Waste Management and South West Water) and the Environment Agency to assess the status of this habitat and to determine if it does provide possible water vole havens. The mink is often viewed as a menace and reports can be alarmist. However, there are also very few records for mink in Cornwall and it is believed that the mink itself could be in decline. While the odd mink record is collected through otter surveys, this year we hope to do some more detailed research. We also hope to look more closely at one of Britain's smallest busybodies - the water shrew. Last year, volunteer Karen Varnham carried out trials of water shrew surveying methods and we would like to do more survey work around the county. We need to know more about the water shrew and there is no time to lose - in the life of a shrew (they generally live less than 18 months) or in the race to determine their status to ensure they do not follow in the footsteps of the water vole. If you are interested in joining the "Shrew Crew" please get in contact to find out what you can do.

I appreciate the Subcommittee holding this hearing on an issue which is important to my constituents. I introduced H.R. 3176 on October 28, 1999. The legislation would require the Secretary of the Interior to conduct a study to determine ways of restoring the natural wetlands conditions in Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge. The study would include an examination of hydrology, manmade impacts on wetlands, species succession and imbalances in natural habitat in the refuge. The legislation authorizes $250,000 to conduct the study. The study would be reported to Congress not later than one year after funds for the study are made available. The Refuge is located on the island of Maui and is part of the Mai Nui National Wildlife Refuge Complex. It was established in 1992 and consists of 691 acres. The pond itself is the largest natural pond in Hawaii, and covers between 400 and 500 acres at its greatest extent during the wet season. The pond is home of two endangered native Hawaiian birds, the Hawaiian stilt and the Hawaiian coot. The pond also provides food and shelter for numerous migratory waterfowl and shorebirds.

The mink has a pretty long history as a popular fur, with its characteristics of being rich and brown. The word mink comes from a Swedish word Maenk. In United States history, it was the first animal to be sold as a fur. The first mink originally evolved in North America, but a later European breed started. The European mink was a little different from the North American breed. The Euorpean minks' fur was a little lighter shade of brown, and the fur was thinner. It was in 1866 that the mink fur began to be raised on mink ranches. By 1940, about 300,000 animals were sold from mink ranches.

The mink usually lives a short life. The average mink has a life span of about 1-5 years. The death of a mink is caused by mainly two factors. Minks are killed often by their natural enemies, the great horned or snowy owl, foxes, coyotes, wolves, and fierce dogs. Of course, humans kill minks for their fur also. The mink can also die because of parsites and diseases.
Minks have many different personality traits, habits, and capabitilites. A mink is chiefly noctrunal, but its eyes are well adapted to day vision also. They depend on mostly their sense of smell for hunting. Minks are truly carnivores. If a mink is angry, startled, or threatened, they migh squeal, hiss, or snarl. They are excellent divers and can dive up to 20 feet. A mink can swim underwater for upt to 100 feet. Adult minks are untamable, bold and ferocious. However, baby minks are playful and they can become attached to the person that cares for them. Minks are very interesting creatures.

A National Audubon Society Sanctuary
From The Heart of The Swamp
By Michael Dawson,
Assistant Sanctuary Manager
May, 1998 With Mother's Day fast approaching, I feel it only fitting to sing the praises of Moms everywhere, including four legged ones that inhabit swamps! A mother's instinct to protect her young is a fascinating and powerful drive. My tender swampy story of motherly love and self-sacrificing devotion involves a baby mink and its mom, as well as five canoes loaded with ten humans. I was leading a canoe trip into the heart of the swamp some years ago, when we heard a series of bizarre, high pitched, squeaky, difficult to describe, desperate sounding cries. Upon closer investigation, I discovered a baby mink clinging to a small cypress knee about a foot out of the water, crying his head off. All five canoes gathered to about 6 feet to get a closer look. He was 8 inches long, chocolate brown with big whiskers, and very distressed. Now, I usually try to avoid the practice of anthropomorphizing. That's a $10.00 word describing our propensity for attributing human characteristics to animals. For example: " Oh! That poor fawn looks so sad!" For some reason, we reserve this practice only for cute and/or fuzzy animals. I have yet to hear anyone proclaim "Oh my, but that little cockroach looks so lonely!"

8.1 Effects Most of the literature on toxicity of PCBs to wildlife concerns the consumption of PCBs in their diet. In reviewing data gathered from various sources, Eisler (1986) noted that, as a group, birds were more resistant to acutely toxic effects of PCBs than mammals. LD s ranging from 604 to more than 6 000 mg Aroclor/kg of diet were reported for various species of birds. Also, for all avian species, PCB residues of 310 mg/kg fresh weight of the bird were associated with an increased likelihood of death from PCB poisoning, Among mammals, the mink ( Mustela vison ) is the most sensitive wildlife species tested. Diets containing 6.7 mg Aroclor 1254/kg fresh weight and 8.6 mg Aroclor 1242/kg fresh weight killed 50% of the mink in 9 months (Ringer 1983). In comparing primary toxicity (where animals were fed a diet containing a PCB formulation) and secondary toxicity (where the diet contained the same concentrations of the metabolised xenobiotic or PCBs in this case) of Aroclor 1254 to mink, Aulerich et al.

Marauding Minks Claim: 6,500 minks set free by animal rights activists rampaged through the British countryside. Status: True. Origins: An attempt to free minks into the wild before they were turned into fur coats has resulted in a wildlife and domestic animal crisis in Britain. Minks, you see, are killers . . . a fact you might expect animal rights activists would have taken into account before unleashing them on an unsuspecting countryside. What follows is one of the representative news articles about this August 1998 invasion brought on by good intentions gone horribly wrong:
In what must have seemed like a brilliant idea at the time, British animal-rights activists sneaked onto the grounds of a mink farm here during the weekend, cut through wire fences and gave 6,500 minks their freedom instead of a future as fur coats. But the illegal act has backfired as few British animal-liberation missions ever have. Released into the rich countryside of England's southern coast, the thousands of minks have gone on a rampage driven by insatiable hunger and equally insatiable mink-like curiosity.
