Mink Problem Solution

Most people know that I enjoy poking fun at CaRT, if I did not poke fun, then I would only end up crying into my beer.  So in the spirit of being a bit more upbeat, I decided to do some fractured motivational posters.  As a kid I had a few motorcycle posters on my bedroom wall. So I decided to hang a few inland waterways posters on my blog wall.

The American Mink has devastated the water voles that form part of the British psyche as the miss named character 'Ratty' from Kenneth Grahame's 'Wind in the Willows' a wonderful children's book. There have been many attempts to eradicate the mink problem, which have all proved to be spectacular failures.  What is needed is to bring in a natural predator that is higher in the food web. One of the oldest dinosaur still alive has chosen another reptile that is still alive to sort the problem out. Until then we will continue to reintroduce the voles as a snack for mink.
