    Scientific Name: Mustela erminea- [Stoat ]

    Description:
    Ermines have features common to the weasel family like a long body, short legs, a long neck and a triangular-shaped head. They are a small weasel; males average 27 cm and females measure up at 24 cm with their tail adding another 7.5 cm to their length. Males are larger than females and weigh on average 80 g while females weigh an average of 54 g.

    Ermines change the colour of their coats seasonally. In the summer, their backs are brown, their undersides are white and their tails sport a black tip. In the winter, they are completely white except for their black tipped tail.

    Did not notice the end of the tail last night, and it's barely in picture. Looked at the right end of the picture today and what looks like a shadow is the tip of the tail.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    I remember one of the trappers on here told me to skin it out like a sleeve/tube and use it on my ATV handle grips....

    It was the first time I worked with something that small and it didn't come out great, but did work.

    A COON! HAH! who woulda guessed!

    Has the problem been solved? Any more missing poultry?

    Don't let your guard down - there's lots of them out there.

    Shot 5 coons last spring in around the house that were wondering around in the middle of the day looking for food or new home.

    Found out a few weeks later a neighbour seen a local pest control company dumping problem coons from a windmill a laneway on our road to get rid of them almost daily.

    I'd love to have his home address to release some down his way, I could have a coon, cat,skunk or squirrel everyday I'd let go at his house.


    If your going to trap it, either deal with it yourself SSS, quit taking it out to the "country" to set free.

    [QUOTE=Cass;1081116]There's possums in Ontario. No need to argue it. Just because you haven't seen them doesn't mean they aren't here. Just saw my first last year.

    Ontario is a very large place. You will not find coons in the far north of Ontario, you will not find deer either, we have not heard of one in our area yet, just south of Ottawa.
