Mink Care

General Information: Minks are in the same family as otters, polecats, and weasels - Mustelidae. They're semiaquatic animals that make quite uncommon pets. Unfortunately, American minks are widely used for their fur - like polecats - even throughout Great Britain. Sadly, due to a mass release of American minks into the wild by animal rights activists, under the Wildlife and Countryside Act, 1981 in the UK, any live mink caught in a trap must be killed.  To keep an American mink in the UK, you must  have a license as they're considered a destructive imported animal, however , there are exceptions to this rule. If you have any uncertainty, please speak to your local council for further clarification.
