Mink up the Hill – The Monksville Chronicles #118

This one isn’t really Monksville, but I was sittin’ in a tree stand somewhere up in the general Weis Ecology Center area, I don’t remember how many years ago, and I didn’t have my video camera with me. So there’s a chipmunk running around down underneath my tree, and he jumps into a hole, and I look and here comes a mink up the hill. The mink comes up and he starts sniffin’ around, and the next thing you know, he dives into the hole and wiggles his way in and all I can see is his tail and his ass and his back legs and he’s munchin’ around in there for like three minutes, you hear chirpin’ and shrieking and the next thing you know, that mink pops out of the hole. He’s got the chipmunk clamped in his mouth. Turned around and walked right back down to the creek to eat it. That’s not something you see every day, I wish I had my video camera with me.
