Thank you for reading this far! I reached out to the Mink-Master and after reviewing this video, here is what he said:

“Yeah, it is most definitely a mink, no doubt about it. It’s the wrong shape for any other option people may throw out there. 100% mink all the way. One thing that may be confusing people is the video makes the animal look much larger than it really is, and the deep snow is changing its gait a bit. I was thrown off for a second, but after watching it a couple times, there really is no other animal this shape, other than a mink. I feel like it is likely a buck mink, based on the head size and stocky build, but I wouldn’t bet anything on my educated guess at the gender.”

Many thanks to Joseph Carter for sharing his knowledge, and for taking the time to evaluate this video.
