If by "support", you mean support in the Mercury language and compiler,
the answer is: no, there isn't. If you are looking for a logic programming
language that has support for optional typing and for Prolog integration,
I would look at Ciao, https://ciao-lang.org, which started out as a Prolog
dialect in which various language features, such as typing, were optional.
