Curiosity killed the Weasel by Katzilla13 Curiosity killed the Weasel by Katzilla13
... well, not really. But this little bugger was so curious when I approached it with my handy dandy zoom, that it allowed me to sit down in the grass only four meters away. You should have seen the stupidly happy grin on my face, as I had never seen a wild weasel before in my life, and this one was so accommodating!

Ich war auch ganz entzückt. Wie klein sie sind! Kaum zu fassen, dass etwas so Kleines ein Kaninchen töten kann.

It was the first I had seen in my life. Where I live, they're pretty much nocturnal.

Vielen Dank. :-) Ich nehme an, dass es in meiner Nähe auch viele gibt, habe aber noch nie auch nur ein einziges auch nur von weitem gesehen. Das hier war wirklich zum Umfallen neugierig. :-)

Ich weiß. Deswegen habe ich ja auch noch nie ein wildes Wiesel gesehen, obwohl wir sicher in Berlin auch mehr als genug davon haben.

So do I, even if I had to live 45 years to see a wild one! Makes it all the sweeter. I couldn't believe how close this one would let me get.

ya .... they are pretty feisty! I had one that kept getting in my house and even though he was just a little bugger he had my two cats at the time TOTALLY intimidated! They would have NOTHING to do with him! I finally live trapped him and took him a couple miles down the road. Three days later he was back!!! Trapped him again and took him across the lake and that was the end of that. But man .... even in the cage he had me really really cautious! You would have thought I had the Tasmanian devil in the cage!!! .... lol

it's an odd coincidence .... the day after you posted this I woke up to find my cat had killed this beautiful weasel and dropped it at the front door!!!!!! I was soooooooooooooooooooooooooo pisssssssssssssssed!!!!! She has never shown any interest in them before! A couple times a year I see them going thru the rocks along the shore looking for mice. I love knowing they are here. Not happy with my cat though :cry:

Argh!! She must have read what you wrote about her having been intimidated by a weasel once, and wanted to show you what a toughie she really is. Shame though. :-(
