    I saw this Weasel when I was setting up to split, looks like my fat fingers switched the setting on the camera by mistake, hope this Weasel eats a chit load of mice.

    He went up the backside of the tree then came down, not too far, he went into where we store our yard tractor.

    Thanks for posting that zap. It has been a long while since we've seen any here.

    After I told my wife about the weasel she was telling me our cat won't go near the Fred Shed, I saw the weasel go in where we store stuff.

    cute little bugger, but I hear they can be quite fierce for their tiny size. Neat to see one in it's winter coat like that, without any snow..

    If you have any poultry, shoot him. They are ruthless chicken killers ....

    Oh, I'm sure you get your share of 'weasels' in the city. They have adapted to walk on two legs instead of four, though....:);)

    Hmmm . . . can these ermines or weasels be trained to clean out the chimney . . . or do we have to stick with ferrets? ;)

    Saw the same thing sitting in my tree stand, deer hunting. Cool little guys! At first I thought it was an albino squirrel until it got closer.
