saw a weasel!!!

Tonight I was walking a road back to my truck with my coon dog...a car was coming so I turned on my light to look for a spot for us to climb the bank...when I did I caught 2 tiny BRIGHT eyes on the base of a tree in front of me..figured a flying squirrel...I swear the eyes were blue but maybe a bright green...

So the car passes and I see it poking its head out of a Y 6ft off the ground...so I tie my dog to a sapling and figure I will see if I can get a look at the critter...

I get around the tree and sure enough there it is!! I weasel!!!

It was white and brown. I believe a short tail..looked 6-8" long with a 3-4" tail if I had to guess...I thought it had more white than pics of them in their summer coat...

He was curious but slightly afraid of me..he eventually slid into a small crack and turned around to look at me lol...


My buddy says he's seen 2 in 2 different farms through the years...I've seen many things out there at night...but that was the first 100% confirmed weasel I've ever seen!



To top it off..my buddy saw 2 big muskrats in his creek yesterday!!! Didn't see any all fall/winter...next year if I'm around I am setting all the creeks...sign or not..we see them around but I just can't find their sign...

And of course weasel boxes are on my list of things to make! They seem to be pretty elusive in PA... I want one tanned for the wall!

Re: saw a weasel!!!

I saw one small game hunting in the anf in 2006. It was white with a black tip of the tail.

Definitely not a common sight in pa.

Cool! The only time I saw one was when I was fishing for trout.

Re: saw a weasel!!!

The last weasel I saw running wild was along the rock wall of the supposedly haunted Triangular Field behind Devil's Den at the Gettysburg National Military Park. I was painting a watercolor at the time so I suppose the tiny fellow appeared to critique my work.

I trap mink because I don't know any better
