Rescued mink experiences playing in water for the first time in its life

From the wonderful YouTube channel Camels and Friends, which is run by people who care for a bunch of critters on a farm, comes this video of a mink who did not end up as a fur coat, having a blast in a tub of water.

"This mink came from a fur farm where he was destined to die a horrible death. Minks are semi-aquatic and most of them will never be able to experience the simple joy of fulfilling their natural instinct to swim."

  1. Notice how otter like he looks when his fur is slicked down!

    Because otters are essentially sea weasels.

    Maybe spinning around in water is the mink version of the weasel war dance?

  5. don't badger the guy!
