First mink attack

My bantams were attacked by a mink right in front of me.I wrapped a rag around my hand and picked up the mink by the back of his body and squeezed hard and still he would not let go of the bantam he had in his jaws.Eventually i got the mink to let go. Is this normal behavior for wild mink or is this a captive bred mink that has been released deliberately.I am asking be cause I have no experience with mink.
I do know we have wild mink because escapees from farms
