Seeing nature along the side of the road

I have never seen one in the wild, and I did not know that Jasper County had them, but apparently there are mink that live around us. I noticed this one along the side of CR 400S near the railroad crossing. It would be a lot more fun to see one alive.
Or is my animal identification in error?

Sure looks like mink to me. They are fairly common across the state, and are also exciting to see. Well, fun to watch alive.

Ok, could have done without the roadkill pic.

Yeah...the post should have come with a warning screen.

Hmm, wonder if there's enough fur to make a Mink scarf.
