Minks a native of Siberia were farmed from around the 1940s around Castletownsend. Some escaped and multiplied and became a major pest devastating poultry and young lambs by attacking and drinking their blood. The Department of Agriculture authorised the use of poison which eventually tacked the problem. They are still around but not in great numbers.
