Mink were found to be susceptible to the intranasal inoculation of human, swine, equine and avian influenza A viruses. The viruses were recovered until the 7th post inoculation (p.i.) day from the respiratory tract. The inoculated mink showed antibody response against these viruses. Contact infection in mink with A/Kumamoto/22/77 (H3N2) was possible.
