We have recently received reports from Members that Mink are once again appearing on several of our stretches of the Rother. Unfortunately these non native animals can not only decimate our fish stocks they are also non-selective predators capable of killing many of our native wildlife ranging from amphibians, rodents and birds. They are partly responsible for the massive decline in water vole numbers we have seen in Britain.
It is generally accepted that the only way to resolve the mink problem is to actively control mink using humane methods. This is done by setting cage traps to capture them alive which is why we would like members to let us know where they have been seen so the traps can be strategically placed in the right location.
Would members who spot mink on any of our waters please contact our Chairman Roger strategically placed in the right location.
