Does anyone have any sure fire ways to get rid of a mink! I had a local trapper come and he sat his conibear kill traps up for a few days and apparently the mink had traveled away at that time.. he returned after the few days and took down his traps.. lo and behold mink came back.. so far the mink has killed 1 adult rooster, 2 adult hens, a juvenile pullet and almost killed one other hen. Thankfully I saved her and she has since made a full recovery (minus the couple chunks missing from her neck that are healing awesomely!! and still has bald spots on both sides of neck and head). Since the chicken massacre, I have kept the coop closed up and 75% of my other chickens and roosters have migrated their way back to the goat barn where they have been locked up due to weather. Soooo during this time the mink returned and discovered my two koi ponds.. I had large (some in excess of 16" butterfly koi and regular koi along with various shebunkins, comets and veil tail goldfish.. the ponds are rather large so most of the fish were very large also.. Mr. Mink has decimated the fish.. he has killed what looks to be all of my large koi ( around 10) and even alot of the other fish.. I am just heart broken over this.. it is bad enough that he killed off my chickens but to treat my ornamental ponds and fish as a buffet (have had these ponds for 5-6 years with no problems until the past month) makes me angry and extremely sad! My fish were beautiful! Any and all mink ridding suggestions welcome.. it has to meet its demise!!!
