    Carnivores of genus Mustela of the family Mustelidae. Although widely trapped for commercial purposes,the fur of the European mink is not as valuable as that of the American mink. At present it is found only in the Soviet Union,Finland,eastern Poland,parts of the Balkans,western France,and northern Spain.
