As a competitor for wild game , the mink is not resented for fulfilling its natural role . But it does endure its share of predation by man .

This ` sexual dimorphism ' means that female mink normally weigh from 500 to 800 grams , and the male often twice as much . Size has considerable implications for the ecology and behaviour of an animal .
