Weasel

Has anyone experienced a weasle in this area?


Are you speaking about a person that may be a weasel or an actual weasel? LOL

I have not seen one in our area but perhaps they are around.


There are weasels in the area. I have them on my property. I have seen them on two occasions, hear them screaming on a fairly regular basis and one attacked my chickens. So yup, there are weasels. Fisher cats are making a comeback as well. They are part of the weasel family, about the size of a house cat.

I've seen a Fisher cat on 57 by home Depot. Unfortunately it was ran over.

Hahahahahahaha it is a rat squirrel - jk we were eye to eye for a long time until he killed the big chipmunk - it was smaller and very strong -
Creepy


I've seen fishers back Waterloo Road. It wouldn't surprise me to see a weasel as well.


I have seen a few minks in the great meadows area


Someone’s escaped ferret?

Re: Weasel

Wow... You're right GPS!

I was driving to work this morning, and saw a dart looking thing go across the street...that bewildered me, since I never say anything like that before!

...it definitely wasn't a squirrel, nor a rat. ....fast, skinny, wondered what it was.

Then just dismissed it from this forum since I didn't see any pictures.
[and I already know a couple or two 'weaseling people' in my area, @Greg --- glad you/your area is safe on that note {lol!}]

So, to make this long story short, it took me to google what a NJ Weasel looks like, and, ta-da, that's it!!! a "Long Tailed Weasel"

I was on airport road today and saw what I thought was a weasel, now I'm thinking maybe Fisher? He was dark brown, beautiful coat and tail, looked very healthy, moved fast.
He was on the west side of the road between Winchester and Kenley.

Re: Weasel

Martin, weasels are about the size of a ferret or a little smaller. A fisher is about the size of a house cat. I attached a photo of a fisher, they are making a comeback in the area.

Definitely a Fisher then, larger and more full bodied than a ferret.About the same size as a large cat. Dark brown, beautiful full coat and tail.

I just hope a fisher doesn’t take up residence in my yard, the weasels are bad enough.
