Ferrets or weasels on Lake Simcoe
by B Russell
We were able to observe at least two small creatures which appear to be weasels, in the mornings between 7 and 11 am diving (disappearing) into the lake and returning with heads up and something in their mouths.
They took turns doing this and disappeared into the bushes. For a while they had been living under our deck a neighbor reports.
They have dark short fur, and are able to stand up and look at you much like a prairie dog.
Glad to read that they eat mice, so we will cherish their presence here at Big Bay Point.
Sorry you can't process the MOV file which I tried to send, as it is a good little video.
They are too fast for still shots.
