"A FRUIT?" - discovered this in paddock in the Summer, 2018... after 30 years, a cold winter and a hot summer... and a companion species - "whatisit??"
Came home after long day last week to find what i thought was a deceased juvenile weasel in the house... having recovered it into a large tupperware box, it sprang to life, squealing and baring its incisors, and battered about in the box. With leather gauntlets, i managed to repatriate it about a mile away, only to later find a n other on the drive. Definitely not the same one, this one i found on the drive didn't have a bite on the same place as the other one. Thanks, cats, but we'd rather you NOT bring these presents inside! I can report that the hens are safe, so far.......................... i read on internet that weasel litter size can be up to 15. They are as dangerous to poultry as are foxes. Joanne
