The Mink That Stopped Traffic – How even people in the know can be mistaken. This is one of many amusing instances of people mistaking mink for a ferret. Not only has FACT received calls insisting there is a “family of feral ferrets” living on their stream, but at one Massachusetts Ferret Frolic in South Hadley, many attendees ran around chasing a “ferret” someone thought they’d seen near the woods. Even experienced animal professionals – and ferret owners! – can get confused. Mink are close in size to domestic ferrets. But domestic ferrets NEVER come in that gorgeous, all-over sable brown color! Another hint? A domestic ferret will generally run to you, rather than away from you especially if it has been outside for more than a few minutes. Farm raised domestic ferrets have virtually no hunting instincts remaining and are usually hungry, thirsty, and view humans as their “source”!
