And here at the WRI, Stripe was a blur yesterday as she came in the window licking her chops and eyeing her buffet, but her eyes were only for bologna. Earlier, she stood up and took a piece of flounder when that was all she could see. Mink StripeMink StripeIt’s always nice to see her, but spring is coming and she’ll probably be off following the shores of lakes and streams eating muskrats, chipmunks, mice, rabbits, fish, snakes, frogs, and more.Those items are probably why she didn’t show up here last spring, summer, and early fall. Fish are on the mink menu, but maybe flounder is down the list. Brown bears in Alaska favor salmon over flounder, especially salmon eggs and brains.

Thank you for all you do.
