OGDEN — One of the byproducts of Ogden’s efforts to make the Ogden River Parkway more welcoming may be that it has made the area more welcoming for mink.
Not mink to make coats out of. These are common, American, fish-stealing mink. They are mink so aggressive, or hungry, they’re willing to play tug-of-war for a 13-inch brown trout.
Marianne Mancuso played that game with a mink and lost. It was the fish or her tackle, she said, and the mink, all 15 inches of it — not counting the tail — won.
