Stoat is just another name for weasel or ermine.Yes we have weasels, but they are not as easy to catch nor as plentiful as one might think.Their tracks are very similar to mink but smaller and not as deep.They are much lighter in weight and often can step on a pan that would otherwise spring when a mink steps on it."The words a man speaks today live on in his thoughts or the memories of others, and the shot fired , the blow struck, the thing done today is like a stone tossed into a pool and the ripples keep widening out until they touch lives far from ours."

Took one with my phone. Can't get it to upload... Sorry.
It had no white. My Papaw identified it as a mink. I believe thats what it is considering the size and coloration.
Thanks guys....livin' the dream 😉
