An angler fishing in Ontario’s Stoney Lake decided to put down the rod and pick up the video camera after he spotted what appeared to be a mink attacking a seagull.
Mink will occasionally target gulls for food, but not normally. Seagulls can be a little too large and powerful for most minks to handle, but as you can see in the below video, the bird was firmly on the defensive for the duration of the fight.
We’re not sure how the fight ended, but it appeared that the seagull did manage to fight the mink off. If we were this angler, we’d probably think about moving off. The last thing you’d want to do is start reeling in a fish with a mink close by.
