That's a beautiful setting Woody and love the Heron. I often get coons with stubby tails and often wondered why they get like that. Do you suppose it's from inter-species confrontations?

Good footage and location -- seeing mink is such a treat. I would be interested in knowing how often mink show up, if you leave the set active for a few months.

Thanks guys. I've gotten photos and videos of raccoons with short tails and no tails, a raccoon caught on camera several times had no tail and an obvious raw spot where the tail had been. Other than battles with another raccoon the only reason I can think of for the amputated tails are narrow escapes from a predator (coyote or bobcat) but it seems too frequent for for the narrow escape scenario.
Chris, I've gotten mink at that beaver pond before and it's the same beaver pond where I took the photos for my post Encounter with a Mink. The one I saw and the two videos in this post were during mink's breeding season here so that may account for the daytime sightings. I plan to leave the camera in place until late September, so we'll see if the mink remain active at the pond. This year I've seen a lot of mink in that general area, so their population must be quite high.
