So... I know I have been promising this to you for a long time now dad... here goes. On Sept 21, vandals let the mink loose from the mink farm right down the street from us. They announced this at church in sacrament, my friend Holly and I thought we had better check it out. We left church, and came home to find one in her back yard. It was not a fighter, and we caught it easily by putting a bucket over it. They we went to my house, but didn't find anything. We went back to church and when it was over, I went back to my house, and there was one sitting on my porch. I yelled for the kids to get away, and called the neighbor. Mike, Wendy, and I chased the thing all over two yards for about 10 minutes, before we were finally able to catch it. It was fast and feisty! I wish you could have seen us all running in our church clothes. I am sure it was a sight! After I told her what was going on, my mom called the news, and they came out and interviewed us. Of course the clip they used was of me acting like a freak, when I had a normal conversation with them before, but what do you expect? Here it is: http://www.ksl.com/?nid=148&sid=4320526
My mom told my dad about it, and he came out to see the action. I thought he just wanted to watch, but was surprised when he opened his trunk, and low and behold... there was a mink catching kit. It consisted of gloves, a grabber stick, and 2 cages. I knew he wanted to get in on the action. My dad's the best!
